In the spirit of justice gone awry, and Casey Anthony’s verdict of not guilty, I felt it appropriate to toss out the other side of the spectrum.
18 year old Tyell Morton of Indiana is facing charges of disorderly conduct, and institutional criminal mischief, for a prank that he offered to his high school before he said farewell and moved on toward adult life.
On May 31, Morton slipped into the school, left a little something-something in the bathroom, and then slipped out. Unfortunately, school security saw an individual in a hooded sweatshirt enter the school building with a package, and then minutes later, leave the school building without the package. A janitor also noticed Morton leaving the premises.
The school was put on lock down, local authorities were alerted and all legal hell broke loose. A bomb squad reported to the school with K9 units, specializing in bomb detection. They searched the school…and searched the school…and eventually found what they were looking for: A blow-up sex doll? Yep. An inflatable companion. The very same that you can see bouncing around at any number of sporting events or frat parties.
The state has charged Morton with the one misdemeanor and one felony, which if he were convicted, he could be sentenced to up to 8 years in prison. The Rush County Prosecutor, Philip J. Caviness stated “I’m pretty comfortable with the charges we’ve filed,” though they’re not actually hoping for a prison sentence.
I bet the people of the state of Indiana and the county of Rush are in unanimous agreement. Tax payer money should absolutely be wasted by bringing this prankster to trial.
