A 9-year-old Florida boy is facing two charges of aggravated assault, which police said entailed brandishing a butcher knife. While his first court appearance isn’t until November 5, his Tuesday booking photo has appeared on the Lee County Sheriff’s Office website. It was then scooped up by a Facebook page from a local mugshot site, prompting an online ethical and legal debate about the boy’s privacy.
