Two Utah fifth graders may face felony charges for showing pornography to classmates on a classroom computer.
The two 11-year-olds got around the computer’s filter by typing a keyword into the browser that wasn’t on the filter’s list of pornographic trigger words. In doing so, they pulled up pornography, multiple images that they then showed to at least nine of their classmates.
The Alpine District school suspended the students, who’ve not been in trouble before, and called the police.
Prosecutors could charge the two with dealing harmful material to a minor, a second-degree felony, or they could decide to charge them with “providing an improper display,” a class A misdemeanor.
Police say the kids will more than likely face the felony charge.
Idiotic. And I’m not talking about the 11-year-olds.
