The case of a suburban Chicago teenager, Corey Walgren, who killed himself in 2017, three hours after a dean and in-school police officer at Naperville High School told the honor-roll student he might face child pornography charges and being placed on the sex offender registry after he was alleged to have made a video of himself having sex with a classmate.

The case was settled for $125,000, but more importantly it prompted a change in Illinois law that requires an adult (such as the child’s parent) be present when a child is being questioned.

The case also shows how devastating the stigma of being registered is.
