      Yearbook prank case can proceed against Mo. teen

      The case against a mid-Missouri teen charged with a yearbook prank can proceed.

      The Columbia Missourian 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.
