High School Student Faces Possible Felony Charges After Yearbook Prank
A Columbia high school Kaitlyn Booth faces a possible felony charge in criminal court after her arrest for changing a classmate’s name in the school yearbook to a sexually suggestive name.
The 17-year-old Hickman High School junior Kaitlyn Booth (pictured above) was arrested May 14 after she allegedly changed a student’s last name from Mastain to “masturbate” in the 100th edition of the Hickman Cresset yearbook. She could be charged with first-degree property damage, a felony, and harassment.
The school decided against reprinting more than 700 yearbooks and would have cost the school $41,000, instead placed stickers with the student’s correct name.
The yearbook victim Raigan Mastain was also a member of the yearbook committee. Booth’s reasons for victimizing Mastain aren’t known but Mastain assured that she “wasn’t that upset” about the prank — just “kind of annoyed.”
“I was disappointed, but I didn’t know her well enough to be personally affected,” Raigan said.
