Yearbook Porn: Big Bear High Students Could Be Charged With Possessing Child Pornography

Big Bear students behave themselves at a dance, for once.
Big Bear students behave themselves at a dance, for once.

The kids at Big Bear High got a racy surprise in their 2010-11 yearbooks: A photo of one 17-year-old male student with his hands down a younger girl's pants at a school dace, according to KNX news radio. And the Associated Press reports that it "may involve sexual penetration." (High five!)

Doesn't look like the girl complained at the time, but when BBH authorities peeped the special moment in the pages of the official school yearbook, they were understandably kind of horrified.

On Tuesday, the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department got involved...

Threatening kids with -- get this -- a count of possessing child pornography if they don't give the keepsakes back.

How much does that suck? If we remember correctly, receiving one's high-school yearbook is pretty much the most exhilarating thing that happens all year. (Especially when the dude from one's English class is pictured, red-handed, all up in the cookie jar.)

A sheriff's spokeswoman told the AP that the yearbook advisor didn't originally notice the naughty couple because they were "in the background" of the photo in question.

The good news: Once all yearbooks are returned, school officials will be "editing of the yearbooks to comply with federal and state laws regarding child pornography," reports the Los Angeles Times. Current status of the recall:

Most students have done so, officials said, and officers are contacting those who haven't to round up the missing yearbooks.

Hate to break it to ya, Principal Ghelber, but something tells us at least one photocopy has been made by now. And uh, not to request child pornography, but if anyone feels like censoring the porny bits and sending it our way, we wouldn't exactly refuse it.
