When a high school senior and varsity football player was dared to flash in the team photo, he just thought he was committing a stupid teen prank.
Turns out, the authorities believe 19-year-old Hunter Osborn was committing 69 counts of indecent exposure — one count for each person who was there the photo was taken — and one count of “furnishing harmful items to minors”. The court has also ordered him to wear an electronic ankle tracker. He has another hearing later this month.
The photo had been sent out in programs and the yearbook, apparently in circulation for months now, and had gone totally unnoticed (to the school’s utter embarrassment).
The Mesa School District’s statement reads in part:
The school and district are conducting an investigation to determine what actions might have prevented the publication of the photograph, so appropriate safeguards can be put in place going forward.
While the small size of the photograph as published makes the details difficult to discern, the yearbook has been recalled so the school can make a minor but critical edit for the inappropriate content.
But 69 counts of indecent exposure? Even the other students feel this is going way too far.
“When people told me about it I thought it was a big thing, but when I looked at it like you can’t really tell, it’s kinda hard to see,” said senior Zach Anthony.
