Girl Who Arranged 'Hit' Sentenced
Jan. 09, 1999
ROME, Ga. (AP) _ A 15-year-old girl was sentenced to two years probation for offering to pay a classmate $100 to kill another high school student.
The girl, whose name was withheld because she is a juvenile, was also ordered Wednesday to attend peer group counseling.
Investigators said a male student at Armuchee High School who overheard a conversation between the two teen-agers in May reported it to the school principal, but said he did not think the girl was serious.
