Teen Commits Suicide and 9 of Her Classmates are Charged with Odd Felonies

Ann Althouse has the story and commentary. After reading the story, as tragic as it is for the deceased's family, I am wondering how a prosecutor can get away with some of the charges leveled against the classmates.

To be sure, the classmates sound like bullies of the worst class and there are certainly some misdemeanors and possibly some felonies that could be charged, but felony school disturbance? Seriously?

Yes, throw the book at the classmates, but make sure it is a law book, not a fiction book.
