A high school yearbook prank leads to a felony arrest, which was surprising even to the victim of the prank. Kaitlyn Booth did something very foolish and changed the name of her classmate, Raigan Mastain to “Raigan Masturbate.” This didn’t come to anyone’s attention until the yearbooks were printed and some were already passed out among the seniors, according to Inquistr on May 29, 2013.
Now Booth, 17 is charged with a felony, something she gets to graduate high school with as a permanent record from Hickman High School in Columbia, Mo. Because of the prank, she ended up being arrested for suspicion of first-degree property damage, which is a felony, and also she was arrested for harassment.
To have all 720 yearbooks reprinted it would cost the school $40,000. The school instead had stickers printed up and the yearbook committee is busy placing the stickers over the wrong name of Masturbate so it will read Raigan Mastain.
To change the girl’s name in a yearbook, a memento from high school that is something often cherished for the rest of your life, was a cruel thing for this girl to do. While Mastain wasn’t happy about this prank, she was surprised that her classmate was arrested on a felony. She thought that was a bit over the edge for a prank done by a high school kid.
Mastain called the prank “stupid,” and she said she was “kind of annoyed,” but she was “shocked” at the consequences her classmate faces.
