New Trier Senior Will Miss Graduation Ceremony After Porn Prank

CHICAGO (CBS) — A New Trier High School student has lost his bid to march in his graduation ceremony, despite getting in serious trouble for printing porn from a school computer.

John Matthews, 18, was suspended in late May, after he printed out pornographic pictures and dropped them down a stairwell at the renowned Winnetka school. He was suspended and barred from the commencement ceremony set for this coming Sunday, TribLocal reported.

Matthews argued he had already served his suspension and should not be punished anymore. His parents filed an injunction seeking to keep him in the graduation ceremony, TribLocal reported.

But Cook County Circuit Court Chancery Division Judge Kathleen M. Pantle did not agree, and denied Matthews’ request, TribLocal reported.

Thus, he will be sitting out.
