Chester County teen signs plea deal for hit man charges

    Corey C. Adams won’t be taking his chance with a jury. The 19-year-old signed a plea deal today that orders him to serve up to 22 years in prison for rape and solicitation to include murder.

    Adams is accused of raping a 20-year-old woman in West Chester last summer, then turning to Facebook in search of a hit man to kill her.

    As the Inquirer reports, Adams offered $500 on the social networking site for “a girls head.”

    Seems not everyone has gotten the message that Facebook is public. At least the victim has that to be thankful for.
