Police arrest two men over teen-sex video

        Two men who allegedly videotaped teen-age girls performing sex acts after getting them drunk have been arrested and charged with multiple offenses.

        One of the girls, a 16-year-old, has accused the men of raping her after she blacked out from drinking, but the men have not been charged with that crime. Police said they could add that charge to the list after they review the tape.

        Police said they are still searching for two other men reportedly involved, and they are looking for two other girls, 15 and 16, who are in the video.

        Arrested were Adam Thomsson, 18, of Westwood and Paul Alexander Sellers, 20, of Price Hill. Both have been charged with illegally using minors in nudity-oriented material and pandering sexually-oriented material. Mr. Sellers was also charged with two outstanding warrants for domestic violence and an alcohol possession that violated his parole.

        The party took place in Mr. Thomsson's Glenway home Tues day night into Wednesday morning, police said. Police arrested the men late Wednesday night in a parking lot near the site of the alleged crime. Police received a tip the men might be there, Lt. Stephen Luebbe of the Cincinnati Police Department said.

        “It seemed their basic game plan was to have a party, get the girls drunk, have sex with them and videotape it,” Lt. Luebbe, said.

        Lt. Luebbe said police were notified by the 16-year-old girl after a friend said he saw the tape of her having sex. Lt. Luebbe said the teen doesn't remember the incident and it appears the girl was passed out when she was sexually assaulted.

        “The tapes have been turned over the the prosecutor's office for further review, and if we can determine there was no consent involved, then we will charge them with sexual battery,” Lt. Luebbe said.

        Both men being held without bond in the Hamilton County jail.
