SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Three teens facing charges in the sexual assault of a 15-year-old Northern California girl who committed suicide after the attack appeared in court for the first time Tuesday.

The proceedings were not public, and lawyers involved in the case aren't commenting.

The three 16-year-old boys are each charged with sexual battery, dissemination of child pornography and possession of child pornography.

The San Jose Mercury News reports that attorneys and family members of the defendants were seen entering juvenile court. Relatives of Audrie Pott, who killed herself after a humiliating photo of her on the night of the attack circulated, were also there.

Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Jaron Shipp told The Associated Press that he couldn't comment or provide any information on the case because the boys are juveniles.
