Earlier this week, 19-year-old Hunter Osborn, a senior at Red Mountain High School, had a felony charge and 69 misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure brought against him for stupidly exposing his dong in the football team’s yearbook picture. While we don’t endorse the specific action Osborn took, teens will always pull off stupid pranks in high school and punishing them with potentially life-altering felony charges is a rather draconian recourse. You can’t legislate dumb teen mischief away by making an example of one football dude who didn’t think about the consequences of accepting a dare.
