Due to the small size of the photo, the prank went unnoticed for months.

But then 250 people received a copy of the yearbook, some of them minors.

The school has since recalled the hardcopies, but Osborn is facing some steep repercussions.

Counting all those present for the team photo, the teen has been slapped with 69 counts of indecent exposure!

He also faces one count of furnishing harmful items to minors.
