Hunter Osborn says a fellow football player dared him to expose himself on photo day. That photo circulating for months in football game programs and the yearbook before the school realized what happened. Now police are involved, and Osborne is facing some very serious charges.

Nineteen-year-old Hunter Osborn sits at home wearing an electronic monitoring device. The Red Mountain High School Senior admits to exposing himself in this Varsity team football photo. He’s been charged with 69 counts of indecent exposure and one count of furnishing harmful items to minors.

Statement from Mesa Public Schools:

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.
