Michigen Teen Sentenced For Blog Sex Photo

ALLEGAN, Mich. -- A teenager was sentenced Friday to two years of probation and 120 hours of community service after posting a sexually explicit photo of two other teens on a popular Web site.

Ryan Zylstra was sentenced in Allegan County Circuit Court. He was 17 years old when he was arrested Feb. 23 but is now 18.

Authorities said the photo, posted on the Internet journal site Xanga, depicted a 17-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl engaged in sexual activity at a New Year's Eve party at Zylstra's home near Wayland.

Zylstra was originally charged with producing child sexually abusive material and other crimes. He agreed to plead guilty in July to a reduced charge involving improper surveillance.
