Revenge video leads to child porn charges

A 21-year-old Burnsville woman who said she sought revenge on a boyfriend for receiving oral sex from another female now faces child pornography charges for allegedly posting video of the incident, which included minors having oral sex.

Kayla Jo Henry-Heagle is charged with one count of disseminating pornography involving minors and one count of possessing it, both felonies.

A Minneapolis man is accused of using a camera phone to record the sex scene, which occurred in a Burnsville hotel room. Antonio Meadez Trice, 26, is charged with one count of using a minor in a sexual performance/pornographic work, a felony.

Two minor girls were recorded performing oral sex in the hotel room, one on a 17-year-old boy and one on a man, according to the criminal complaint.

In late June one of the girls, 17, who was paired in the video with the 17-year-old boy, told Wyoming, Minn., police she’d gotten a comment about the video on her social networking page. Both girls went to Henry-Heagle’s social networking page and found “voluminous comments” asking her to take down the video because the girls were minors.

When questioned by Burnsville police, Henry-Heagle said she posted the video on June 28, the complaint said. She described the video as two minor girls performing oral sex on two males — one 17, and one an adult she was dating at the time. She was “upset” he was with another female, the complaint said.

“Henry-Heagle acknowledged knowing the females were minors, but said she didn’t care because she was so angry” at her boyfriend, the complaint said.

The events occurred “eight or nine months” prior to the June 28 posting, the 17-year-old girl told police. She and the other girl went to the hotel room to “party with some other people,” the complaint said.

Trice allegedly shot the video on Henry-Heagle’s boyfriend’s phone. At one point in the video, he turned the camera on himself and made a comment, the complaint said. A Burnsville detective used a snipping tool to pull his image from the video.

The image, sent to police departments statewide, was identified by Minneapolis police as Trice’s image, the complaint said.

Trice is a half-brother of the 17-year-old boy and of Henry-Heagle’s boyfriend, the complaint said.
