Teen Admits Trying to Hire Hit Man on Facebook

Teen Admits Trying to Hire Hit Man on Facebook

WEST CHESTER, Pa. — A Chester County teenager faces 11 to 22 years in prison after agreeing to a plea agreement on charges he used Facebook to try to hire a hit man to kill a woman who had accused him of rape.

Nineteen-year-old West Chester, Pa., resident Corey Christian Adams accepted the plea agreement Friday on charges of rape, criminal solicitation of murder and other counts.

In July, a 20-year-old woman who had accused Adams of raping her after a party called police to point out a posting on his Facebook page offering $500 for “a girls head.” In a later posting, police say Adams said “he needed this girl knocked off right now.”

The Daily Local News of West Chester reports that neither Adams nor his attorney commented outside court.
