KENTON - A young teenage girl who maintained her innocence in a case over an alleged “hit list” was found not guilty at trial Monday.
The girl’s case was tried before Hardin County Juvenile Judge James Rapp. She was charged with disorderly conduct, a minor misdemeanor.
Another girl charged in the case admitted to her role in January and was sentenced to 10 days in jail on the charge of disorderly conduct. A third girl admitted to her role in December on the charge of disorderly conduct and received a similar sentence.
The girl who was convicted said she and two other girls at Kenton Middle School were in study hall on Sept. 17 when they decided to write down the names of people at the school they did not like. One girl wrote “hit list” on top of the sheet of paper.
The acquitted girl told Rapp she had nothing to do with the list and only was ask to provide the name of a boy she liked. She said she had no idea what the two other girls were up to.
