If Sean Salisbury has taught us anything, it’s that (allegedly) taking cell phone photos of your junk and sending them around is a terrible idea. But at least Salisbury was (allegedly) showing them to adult co-workers. Sending them to teenage cheerleaders who attend the school you coach at? A much, much worse idea.
Further demonstrating that technology is not always a good thing, 28-year-old high school football coach and middle school teacher Tyson Norsworthy has been arrested and charged with using text messaging and the aforementioned photos to arrange sex with at least one teenage girl at his school. At the very least, Norsworthy has established a pattern of sending inappropriate text messages to a number of girls while they’re still in middle school (though it appears he waits until they’re in high school to try and have sex with them. How considerate.)
You know the Willie Nelson song, “Mama Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys”? Well, maybe he should write a sequel, “Mama, Don’t Let Your Daughters Grow Up To Be Cheerleaders”. Almost every day, another scandal surrounding cheerleaders and naked cell phone photos. The more disturbing twist today is that said photos were found on the cell phone of a middle school janitor.
(Note to cheerleaders: Stop doing this!)
The man in question is one Steven Decimone, a janitor at Harding Middle School in Jefferson Couty, Ohio, just across the West Virginia border (big shock there, right?). According to the West Virginia paper THE STATE JOURNAL, Decimone is about to get better acquainted with bright orange jumpsuits because his cell phone was found to have naked photos of four topless, middle school cheerleaders.
As we mentioned before, this isn’t the first time that topless cheerleader photos have popped up on cell phones. Far from it. The difference is that this is the first time those cheerleaders have still been in middle school (i.e., 11-13 years old) and this is the first time said pictures have been found on a janitor’s cell phone.
