YardBarker- An Arizona high school football player was arrested over the weekend after a prank went way, way too far.
Hunter Osborn, a 19-year-old student athlete at Red Mountain High School in Mesa, was taken into custody over the weekend after a photo of him exposing himself in the school’s yearbook was discovered. The photo went unnoticed by school officials and was also printed in the football program and sold at games to students and their families.
Osborn has been charged with 69 counts of misdemeanor indecent exposure and one felony count of providing obscene material to a minor. He was released from jail and ordered to wear an electric monitor for the time being.
According to court documents obtained by KNXV, Osborn told police he “was dared by a football teammate” to expose himself during the team photo and is “disgusted” by what he did. He was 18 at the time it was taken.
If convicted, Osborn could be forced to register as a sex offender.
Wait, you're fucking with me, right? Where is the hidden camera? SIXTY-NINE misdemeanors for the kid that pranked an entire yearbook committee into publishing his penis? How the hell did they come up with that number? I am genuinely interested in how he ended up with 69 offenses when 250 yearbooks containing his flaccid junk were distributed. I would say that someone in this story has a sense of humor, but I find that hard to believe considering a high school kid is about to get branded with a scarlet letter for second hand indecent exposure. I have to imagine it would have been worth it for the cops to knock a charge or two off his record just so his story didn't seem even funnier than it already was.
Quick question, when is the statue of limitations up on getting photographed with your dick out? I'm more concerned with journalistic integrity than I am with retroactively labeling an 18 year old a sex offender for flashing a camera man. When do we start holding people accountable for what they publish? This kid is about to lose his freedom when the only people that should get in trouble reside on the yearbook committee. They were given a job, and they failed to do it. Maybe they didn't sign up for the job because they wanted to meticulously search every team picture for teenage dicks, but that's undoubtedly part of it's requirements. If anything this kid is a victim. He cleverly exposed his boyhood to a distinct group of individuals, and out of pure negligence they distributed it to a much larger group of people. High school football players are supposed to pull homoerotic pranks. The dorky kids that dedicate their time to creating a useless book full of glorified memories aren't supposed to put those pranks on paper and circulate them to their classmates. To whom much is given, much is expected. The idiot that was dared into exposing his tiny white wiener wasn't given much mentally or physically, but the person that had editorial authority was given the responsibility to keep it from the general public.
