Webcam Girl Charged

2/26 UPDATE: In a court appearance this afternoon, Sunderland entered a not guilty plea to the misdemeanor public indecency charge. She is next due in court on April 28. When first questioned by police, Sunderland copped to the X-rated web cam performance, adding that she was “not sure which of her customers posted the video to the Internet,” according to a police report. Sunderland also reportedly admitted that she “sometimes herself gets pleasure from seeing the webcams.”

FEBRUARY 24--Prosecutors have filed a public indecency charge against the former Oregon State University student who last month filmed an X-rated webcam show inside the school’s main library, according to court records.

Kendra Sunderland, 19, was named last week in a misdemeanor criminal information filed in Circuit Court in Benton County.

The February 17 charging document alleges that Sunderland, a Corvallis resident, “did and with the intent of arousing the sexual desire of defendant or another person, expose her genitals” while inside the university’s Valley Library.

Investigators allege that Sunderland’s lewd performance occurred on the evening of January 27 while she was seated at a desk on the library’s sixth floor.

During her 31-minute webcam performance, Sunderland is seen exposing her breasts and vagina, masturbating, and licking herself. While doing this, she took typed directions from someone watching the action live online. Sunderland apparently used the library’s wi-fi connection to broadcast the webcam performance via her laptop.

While Sunderland has attended Oregon State, she is not currently registered for classes. She previously studied human development and family science, according to university records.

Sunderland is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday on the indecency charge, which carries a maximum one-year prison term and a $6250 fine. After the teenager enters a plea, a judge will set a status conference date, according to a court clerk.

Sunderland has embraced the notoriety stemming from her illicit library antics. While continuing her webcam business, she has posed for Playboy, signed a deal to front for a sugar daddy web site, and done radio and TV interviews.

Her Twitter account--which now has more than 74,000 followers--features a steady stream of racy photos and career updates (most of which include the hashtag “#LibraryGirl”). In a message yesterday, Sunderland reported, “Holy shit! I'm the 56th most popular pornstar on @Pornhub.” (2 pages)
