Charges: 2 Hockey Players Used Minor In Sex Video

MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — Two members of the USHL’s Lincoln Stars are accused of using a 15-year-old girl to make a sex video in a Minnesota motel room.

Thomas Carey and Brandon Smith, both 19, were each charged Tuesday with using a minor in a sexual performance, possession of child pornography and distributing pornography, all felonies.

Clay County Attorney Brian Melton tells KFGO-AM the video was made in Moorhead in February during a team visit to play the Fargo Force.

The cellphone video was distributed to an unknown number of people, including hockey players.

Carey’s attorney calls it a case of “selective prosecution” and says Carey plans to defend himself “vigorously.”

The Lincoln Stars say the players have been suspended indefinitely for violating the USHL’s code of conduct.

Carey and Smith are scheduled to make their first court appearance July 10.
