ROSEVILLE (CBS13) — Prosecutors are laying out the case against the high school student accused of having sex with underage girls and recording the acts on video.
Michael Contini made his first court appearance on Wednesday, and when he walked in, he and his attorney had very little to say.
Shackled and wearing an orange jumpsuit, Roseville’s Woodcreek High School wrestling standout was whisked into the courtroom and seated with his attorney.
The 18-year-old is accused of recording girls as young as 14 in sexual encounters.
Roseville Police say they got a call from a high school administrator saying an inappropriate image was discovered of an underage girl circulating around the school.
Police also say they found videos of at least three minors engaged in different sex acts with Contini, some recorded without the girls’ knowledge.
Investigators say that video was then shared with others online.
The judge wouldn’t allow us to record what was said in the courtroom, but if the evidence presented by the prosecution is true, it will speak volumes.
No decision was made in court today as the case was continued until March.
