Former HS football player could land on sex offender registry over yearbook photo prank

Hunter Osborn said it was a prank suggested by teammates, and that he’s “disgusted” with himself. Authorities in Mesa, Ariz., are saying that the high school football player’s decision to expose himself in a team photo is much worse than that, and now Osborn is facing dozens of charges.

Because the photo was published in the Red Mountain High yearbook, the 19-year-old, who was 18 at the time, has been charged with a felony count of furnishing harmful items to minors. The photo also appeared in a football program that was sold at games to students and their families.

In addition, according to CBS 5 News, Osborn is facing 69 misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure, one for each of the students present when the photo was taken at the school’s bleachers. Police, who arrested Osborn on Saturday — the day of his senior prom — after being alerted to the photo, indicated that the number of counts could go down if students who are 18 or older decline to press charges.

“He made a dumb mistake a little bit, but I don’t think he should be charged so heavily for that,” a Red Mountain senior told CBS 5. Another student, a sophomore, said, “It’s something that’s going to be on his record for the rest of his life. The consequences are a little harsh.”

A petition at Change.org titled, “Free Hunter Osborn,” currently has over 1,000 supporters. “The teacher responsible for the yearbook should be fired,” the petition states. “Red Mountain High School is using him as a scapegoat instead of taking any responsibility! Hunter needs to be held accountable for his actions but that doesn’t mean ruining his life!”

The Mesa public schools system released this statement:

“The district is dismayed by the actions of the students involved in the photograph.

“Their behavior does not reflect the values of Red Mountain High School or Mesa Public Schools.

“Upon learning of the photograph, school administration immediately contacted police and is cooperating fully with the investigation.

“Disciplinary action will follow policy and may be based on the outcome of the police investigation.

“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.”

According to police documents, Osborn, who may have to register as a sex offender, told investigators that he was “disgusted by what he had done.” A Mesa police spokesman said to ABC 12 News, “The charges are in accordance with the laws Osborn violated and if a victim wants to move forward — they can’t arbitrarily choose what someone is charged with.”

More like why are people who publish yearbooks so fucking idiotic for not noticing it in the first place. Whoever was supposed to vet that material should be held at fault too if this guy is getting charged the way he is. If someone noticed it but decided to publish it anyway they too should be liable.

I mean yeah the guy is an idiot for doing it, as well as the two guys in front of him in the picture who were clearly in on it, but the people who actually published the material were pretty clueless and irresponsible themselves for letting it get past them.

Yet if women want to whip out a boob and shove it in the face of an underage child, somehow that's just "normal". Women are perverts.

this.

They should charge the photographer with making porn. They should charge the school with distributing porn. They should not charge this guy with anything.

I personally still think its funny and I'm in my 30s

Don't give them any ideas. If they could, they'd probably throw the entire High School in jail for life.

This whole board became a joke without IDs and proper moderation.

The very notion of "news" surviving in this cesspit could only do so while 8ch was a smaller group.

It needs an /r9k/ robot, at the very least.

Make the spammers put in some effort if they want to post the same picture in every thread.

I feel like we're missing some important context here. How did they distribute this picture in not only a football program but the school yearbook? How did this get spread before someone noticed the problem with the picture? How are 69 people supposedly victimized if nobody noticed or kept quiet about it?

When Chad is having his life ruined for something that deserves a slap on the wrist? You better defend him, because if they can get away with doing it to him, they can and will do it to the likes of us.
