ROCKBRIDGE COUNTY (WSLS 10) - The Rockbridge County Sheriff's Office has charged two teens who investigators say lured a convicted sex offender to a home and videotaped beating him.

The boy who posted the video on Facebook faces both an assault and battery charge, as well as a conspiracy to commit assault and battery charge.

His friend is charged with conspiracy to commit assault and battery.

The Rockbridge County Sheriff's Offices says it will serve those juvenile petitions on Friday.

George Mason, the father of one of those teens, is also charged with conspiracy and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The sheriff's office says Mason planned to turn himself in on Thursday evening.
