Teen chooses Death over Sex Offender Registry
15-year-old Christian Adamek from the US-state of Alabama killed himself after facing expulsion and being put on the sex offender registry for a streaking prank at high school football game.
Just one week earlier, he had been arrested by cops after running naked across the field during a high school gridiron game on September 27. Under Alabama law, Christian faced being placed on the sex offenders register if found guilty of indecent exposure.
Video of his streaking was put on YouTube, attracting enthusiastic comments calling him a “legend” from his fellow students at Sparkman High, but has since been removed. School officials, who were furious over the incident, threatened the teen with expulsion and legal action for indecent exposure – which under Alabama law would put him on the sex offender’s register.
