Rushville, Indiana - Tyell Morton, an 18-year-old student at Rushville High School now faces up to 8 years in prison after he allegedly placed a blow up doll in the girl's restroom as a senior prank.
According to Indiana State Police, Morton was arrested after school security cameras captured a man wearing a hooded sweatshirt entering the building with suspicious package and then leaving without it.
Unsure of the package's content, school officials evacuated the entire school and called in the Indiana State Police Bomb Squad.
The package was later discovered to be a blow up doll that had been placed in the girl's restroom as a senior prank.
Police weren't laughing, however, and arrested Morton on felony charges.
"It's not right. It was a senior prank," said Morton as he was led away to jail. "I didn't hurt anybody. I didn't intend to embarrass anybody. What did I do wrong?"
Morton's attorney thinks the possible eight year prison sentence is excessive, stating that if Morton had brought a gun to school, he would only be facing a class D felony which allows for up to three years in jail.
"I'm facing eight years jail time.... years for a doll," Morton complained.
Morton, who reportedly has no prior entanglements with the law, will miss his high school graduation and has been banned from school property.
