      Yearbook prank case can proceed against Columbia teen

      The case against a mid-Missouri teen charged with a yearbook prank can proceed.
      The case against a mid-Missouri teen charged with a yearbook prank can proceed. The Columbia Missourian (http://bit.ly/18LXEdp) reports that a Boone County judge denied a motion Friday to dismiss a misdemeanor charge of tampering with computer data. The 17-year-old suspect was arrested in May after she was accused of changing a student's last name to "Masturbate" in the 2012-13 Hickman High School yearbook. The teen says she already has been punished with a 10-day suspension from school during finals week and received zeros on all of her exams. The judge is still weighing whether to allow a written statement that the teen gave to school staff to be used against her. The teen's attorney says any statements the teen made before her arrest shouldn't be admissible.
