High School Seniors – Think Twice About That Senior Prank

June 13, 2014

As school comes to an end, seniors across the country play senior pranks.  It’s a tradition that’s very common, and so most of the time students don’t get in much trouble about it – except to receive clean-up duty.  Not the case at Varina High School in Henrico County.

Last week, 11 teenagers were charged with crimes after a senior prank. Chocolate syrup, rice, flour, and eggs were thrown around, and words were written with the chocolate syrup on walls.  Permanent markers were also used to write on doors.

Some of the students are charged with felony vandalism for allegedly causing more than $1,000 damage to a public building. Some students are charged with misdemeanor trespassing.   In addition to the criminal charges, the students face disciplinary actions through the school.

Most of the mess was cleaned up pretty quickly.  Hundreds have signed a petition to urge the County to drop the felony charges.

So seniors – please be careful.  You don’t want your senior prank to end up as a felony on your record.
