NEW ORLEANS — A 14-year-old girl was arrested on Tuesday for attempting to hire a hitman, according to Baton Rouge Police.
Police say she used the website rentahitman.com to hire a person to kill her ex-boyfriend.
An administrator of the website reported the incident to authorities.
"My client is a juvenile first of all. In order to carry out any crime, you have to have the wherewithal to make it happen. This is a 14-year-old she doesn't have five dollars to pay a hitman," Michael Nunnery, the lawyer for the teen, said.
The hire a hitman website is a fake, and the site operators send the information straight to the police.
Investigators booked the ninth-grader into East Baton Rouge Juvenile Detention Center for solicitation for murder.
