WESTWOOD, OH (FOX19) - A senior prank at one Cincinnati Public School could land the culprit behind bars.
The prankster posted a phony letter on Facebook that looks like it was written on a CPS letterhead. Below is the letter. Warning the letter contains some language that could be offensive to some:
"The Cincinnati Public School District is required by law to conduct mandatory penis and vaginal inspections on all students, faculty and staff at Gilbert. A. Dater High School in accordance to the City of Cincinnati health codes. This year's penis and vaginal inspection will take place Friday, May 20, 2016 at 8:20 AM. All circumcised males should report to Ms. Field's room, all uncircumcised males to report to Ms. Christmon's room, and all females report to Ms. Blair's room. There will be only one make-up date on Monday, May 23rd."
Some students have laughed-off the prank and never took the phony letter seriously. But, if the school district chooses, the culprit(s) could end up in jail.
"These kids could technically be prosecuted," FOX19 NOW Legal Analyst Mike Allen said. "Forgery states that if you forge writing that appears to be genuine it's a felony to the fifth degree."
On Wednesday, Cincinnati Public Schools' spokesperson Janet Walsh released a statement on the incident.
"The letter clearly has been altered with a bogus communication 'morphed' to legitimate letterhead. As far as I know, the culprits have not yet been identified but they would face disciplinary proceedings if we do track them down."
