Harmless Prank, or Meriting Expulsion?

You decide:

Two honor roll students at a Yuba City high school are facing expulsion and criminal charges in connection with a streaking incident at a football game that was recorded and posted to YouTube.

The two best friends and fellow seniors at River Valley High School, Allie and Angie, walked onto the school's football field during halftime, stripped off their clothes and started running.

They had seen the stunt on a reality show and thought it looked like fun, Allie told CBS13...

Both girls were suspended for three days and could be expelled, and they both are due in court to face charges of indecent exposure.

Suspension I can understand. Expulsion seems a bit much to me.

if they're under 18, does that count as child porn on youtube?

Expulsion is ridiculus... expecially since it will be on the internet no matter what.

Spank them with three days off and maybe some other things (do schools still have detention?) and let them go along...

Scott, I wondered the same thing.

And would a conviction merit a mention on Megan's Law? After all, this could constitute a "sex offense".

Ten days suspension from school, not expulsion but attendance and participation at all school activities should be revoked including all sports, dances (including prom), and they should be allowed to graduate but not participate in the ceremony. They should also have to issue an apology to the families of this high school. And, last but not least, they should be charged with indecent exposure and deal with the consequences of breaking this law, whatever that my be.
