The four alleged attackers were initially beaten for third degree assault and one was also charged with disorderly conduct after they were also indefinitely suspended from school.
Ocean County Attorney Bradley D. Billhimer announced Friday that the charges against the teens had been increased.
One is now charged with aggravated assault and could face trial as an adult, one for molestation and two for conspiracy to commit aggravated assault.
Billhimer said: “A copy of his complaint has been served on each juvenile and his guardian and they will be released pending future court hearings.”
None of the teenagers behind the attack have been identified.
The 20-second viral clip shows several students attacking and hitting the teenage girl with a water bottle while she is out walking with her boyfriend.

Viewers also laugh at Adriana after she was punched, kicked and hair pulled while lying on the school hallway floor in the fetal position.
One of the attackers could be heard yelling, “You’ll get that, you stupid ass.”
Under New Jersey law, minors charged with more serious crimes, such as assault, may be tried in an adult criminal court.
The decision whether or not to bring charges as an adult rests with the prosecutor.
The penalty for a felony assault conviction in New Jersey ranges from 18 months to 10 years in prison.
Harassment and conspiracy allegations against minors are less likely to be brought before a criminal court.
Kuch’s father, Michael, told DailyMail.com on Friday that the school board was reluctant to expel the bullies for fear of losing revenue.

He said, “If my daughter is worth $23,000 a head to them because they would lose four students, what is anyone’s child worth?”
Kuch’s family said the teenager’s funeral, which was due to take place on Saturday, has now been cancelled.
No faculty members from Central Regional High School were present at Friday night’s visitation.
Michael told DailyMail.com that his daughter was not suspended in the days leading up to her death but was told not to return until her injuries had healed as she may have faced further ridicule.
“We can’t stop crying, this is the last time I see her.
“It shouldn’t be happening, we’ve heard it over and over again, that your child shouldn’t go before you.”
Headmaster Triantafillos Parlapanides tried to shift blame from his department after the tragedy.
“Her father had an affair at the end of her 6th grade. Her father married the woman he was having an affair with and moved in with her,” he exclusively told DailyMail.com in an email.

Students stand with signs protesting their deaths and are urging the school to do more than it has done after it was revealed several similar acts took place at the school
“Her grades and choices deteriorated in 7th and 8th grade. We offered her drug rehabilitation and psychiatric treatment five times, but the father refused each time.”
Michael criticized Parlapanides for his comments after his daughter’s death.
“What’s insensitive is that he goes on social media and defends his actions and attacks other people,” he said.
“The administration needs to be completely shaken up, and by shaken up I mean they need to be removed.”
“I don’t know why he’s been there so long. I have no idea why this man still has a job.”
Michael said he is in talks with an attorney about the family’s next legal action.
He also said lawyers from across the country have been in touch with him.
