A 19-year-old admitted to making a 14-year-old girl drunk and taking advantage of her while she was out cold.
A mutual friend was sharing the incident on Instagram when the 19-year-old joined the Instagram live broadcast and apologized about it to the public.
During the live broadcast, he admitted that he had conducted sexual acts on the underage girl.
On Tuesday (Nov 15), he pleaded guilty to five charges, one of which is one count of sexual penetration of a minor below 16 years of age.
On November 22, police said they got several reports about the case after a video of a teenager confessing to sexually abusing a girl was posted on Instagram and other social media platforms. The boy was detained a day after the video went viral on social media.
Due to a gag order to protect the victim, the names and photo of the accused cannot be published.
He also faces charges of theft, cheating and driving without a licence.
As seen on social media, he was originally exposed by the Instagram account @trendsomemore (since removed). It appears that the account was set up by the victim’s friend specifically to expose the youngster who sexually abused the girl.
The Instagram account shared all of the evidence, beginning with a few photos of the discussion and a video showing the adolescent carrying the victim down the stairs while the girl was unconscious.
The accused will back in court on Nov 22 and he will be sentenced on Jan. 12.
