The Red Mountain High School prank encouraged by fellow teammates lands senior football player, Hunter Osborn, 19, in jail for a memorable yearbook photo distributed to the local community.
An online petition, Free Hunter Osborn, reached nearly 7,000 supporters for the Red Mountain High School football team player who was charged with 69 counts of indecent exposure, a Class 1 misdemeanor, and a Class 4 Felony for furnishing harmful items to minors. The school administration was not aware of the photo until after being distributed for several months to 3,400 students. Osborn can now face time behind bars and a lifetime sex offender registration.
Many online supporters question the administrative actions behind the yearbook publication. Would it be fair to arrest the two football players, #1 and #81, for creating the gap to expose Osborn's genitals? Would they be classified as an accessory to this prank? Should the photographer or editor in charge of the yearbook be held for questioning?
Osborn told police that it was a dare and feels 'disgusted' in his behavior.
Check out the Red Mountain HS via Twitter. They ironically joined this month. Nothing reported on the incident has been tweeted.
Is it fair to be registered as a sex offender and held for a count per team player involved in the photo? Do you think the school should have taken a different stand when these players might have showered together throughout their football careers?
