Teenager hires assassin to kill his girlfriend's full-term fetus

A young man of 18 years of age acknowledged that he had tried to hire someone to kill the full-term fetus of his girlfriend. The teenager was sentenced to more than six years in jail.

Charles D. Young received 76Ѕ months in prison Tuesday after pleading guilty to first-degree solicitation to commit manslaughter. State law allows for such a count when a viable fetus is the intended target.

Prosecutors allege Young, then 17, offered an undercover officer posing as an assassin $3,250 (EUR2,434) last October to injure his estranged 17-year-old girlfriend so badly that her fetus would die.

Young was arrested after a classmate learned of his plan and went to police, who arranged to have Young and the undercover officer meet, prosecutor John Troberg said. Young said in a recorded conversation that he did not care whether his former girlfriend survived the attack, Troberg said.

Young apologized to the girl and her family at sentencing, Troberg said.

Young, who learned of the pregnancy after breaking up with the girl, initially expressed interest in raising the child but later told his ex-girlfriend he wanted nothing to do with the baby, the prosecutor said.

Young's attorney, Bevan Maxey, said his client is an intelligent young man who got bad advice.
