Musician Jailed Over Prank YouTube Video

An anonymous reader writes “Evan Emory, a 21-year-old aspiring musician, edited together video of him singing a G-rated song to a bunch of giggling school kids with video of him singing a song with sexually explicit lyrics, and posted it on YouTube. For this stupid joke, done many times by professional comedians (all NSFW, obviously), and admittedly done without getting permission from the children shown ‘hearing’ him sing naughty words, he was arrested and could face 20 years in prison as a sex offender. On the pretext of looking for ‘souvenirs’ of child sexual abuse, his house has been searched by police, and the Muskegon County (Michigan) Prosecutor has insinuated (with no further evidence) that Emory actually wants to have sex with children and claims he ‘victimized every single child in that classroom.’ Emory insists he had no such intention.”
