One 18-year-old man faces two counts of distributing child pornography, while another 18-year-old man is charged with distributing and making child pornography.
Police announced the arrests in the high-profile case last week.
The names of the teens cannot be released because they were under the age of 18 at the time of the alleged offences.
Parsons was taken off life-support following a suicide attempt in April in what her family says was prompted by months of bullying.
They say Parsons was tormented after a digital photograph of her allegedly being sexually assaulted was distributed around her school.
