MERIDIAN -- The 25 students involved in the Mountain View High School senior prank may be able to avoid criminal charges, but they won't get away without a punishment.
The students were cited for malicious injury to property and unlawful entry of a building after putting up Post-it notes on student lockers and zip tying them shut. However, the prank got out of control when vegetable oil got spilled in the school hallway.
Meridian Police Deputy Chief Tracy Basterrechea says the misdemeanor charges are not dismissed, but the prosecutor is holding the tickets. That means if the students involved do community service through the school, and pay for the cleanup, the charges will be dismissed.
