Levar Allen is a 17-year-old standout three-sport student athlete at Parkway High School in south Bossier City, La.
An award-winning wrestler, football and basketball player, Levar is beloved at school and in the community. He’s never been in trouble with the law a day in his life — until now.
Levar did what millions of kids in America are doing — he exchanged naked text messages with a 16-year-old classmate.
First, she sent Levar a nude video and then he sent her one in return. Call it gross, but a recent study found that 54% of kids under the age of 18 have done so before.
Parents may hate it, but when it’s consensual, it’s definitely safer than in-person intercourse.
But Levar lives in the deep South. He’s black. And it appears his biggest mistake wasn’t doing what the majority of American teens have done. His biggest mistake was doing so with a white girl.
Her parents called the police when they discovered what was happening. Of course, they arrested Levar and he was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and possession of child pornography for the video he still had of her on his phone.
