Two Hudson High School students have been charged with misdemeanors for their part in distributing a collection of revealing photographs of a fellow student at the school.
Michael L. Meyer-Senty, 17, 1900 Aspen Drive, Hudson, pleaded innocent to one misdemeanor count of defamation during an initial appearance Monday (April 28). The charge resulted from the investigation of an April 1 incident at Hudson High School involving an 11-photo collage of nude pictures of a young female student. Copies of the collage were discovered by a teacher in the men’s east locker room, the criminal complaint said.
Tyler J. Schultz, 17, 2213 White Pine Circle, Hudson, was charged with one count of defamation in connection with the same incident. Schultz was scheduled for an initial appearance May 27.
The complaint said Schultz admitted to school officials he collected photos of the young lady from other students via his cell phone, then created the collage and printed it. Meyer-Senty admitted to conspiring with Schultz to distribute five copies of the collage throughout the locker room.
The maximum penalty for conviction of a defamation charge is nine months in prison and/or a $10,000 fine.
