A girl who filmed a live sex show in a university library while students studied around her has been formally charged with public indecency.

Kendra Sunderland, 19, exposed her breasts and fondled herself on camera on campus at Oregon State University in January for a sex website.

But she was arrested earlier this month and charged - and could now face a year in prison and a £4,000 fine.

Ms Sunderland, who was previously a student at the university, and enrolled in a human development and family science programme, has been banned from the premises, the Daily Mirror reported.

She told the New York Daily News that she had dropped out to pursue a glamour modelling career - but admitted that her parents weren't very impressed with her decision and had cut off the funding she was using for her education.

"They’re kind of upset now," she said. "I knew that eventually everyone would see everything about me and see me naked. I just didn’t think that would happen so fast and have my actual name on it."

Ms Sunderland also said that she decided to make the lewd 30-minute video after it was suggested by one of her fans. A user then recorded it and uploaded it to a popular porn site, where it has been viewed more than 250,000 times.

"I’ve always been the type of girl who’s not afraid to show off, so I didn’t feel weird about it," she said.

Since the scandal broke, Ms Sunderland has posed for Playboy and launched her own website. But she has reportedly been banned from webcam site MyFreeCams for violating their guidelines with the library clip.
