Two Miami 18-Year-Olds Arrested for Filming Minors at Sex Party

Two 18-year-old Miami men could face time behind bars for putting underage girls in front of the camera.

On Wednesday, police say, Christian Hernandez held what turned out to be a teenage sex party at his home in Southwest Miami-Dade, according to NBC Miami. Bryan Yanes, also 18, was present, as was 19-year-old Bianca Byndloss. The three other participants were underage.

Hernandez and Yanes have been arrested. Police are searching for Byndloss.

The group engaged in consensual sex acts together, and Hernandez decided to break out his cell phone and film some of the activity. Videos include two of the minors performing oral sex on each other and a shot of another victim's genitalia while she was asleep.

Hernandez faces six charges each of possessing and promoting sexual performance by a child (AKA child porn). At least one of the victims was under the age of 16, so Hernandez also faces a charge of lewd and lascivious battery on a minor between the ages of 12 and 16.

According to Yanes' Facebook account, he's a recent graduate of Miami Killian Senior High School.

Yanes also faces a lewd and lascivious battery charge. Byndloss will likely face a similar charge.
