Ohio Teen Sentenced In Craigslist Plot

Nov 9, 2012

An Ohio teenager has been sentenced to life in prison in a deadly plot to lure men desperate for work with phony Craigslist job offers.

The judge sentenced 17-year-old Brogan Rafferty today in Akron on his conviction for aggravated murder and attempted murder. Three men were shot to death, while a fourth victim survived. The sentencing got delayed from Monday amid talks on a deal for leniency in return for Rafferty's testimony against the alleged shooter. The jury rejected the defense claim that Rafferty feared for his life if he didn't cooperate with co-defendant Richard Beasley. The 53-year-old Beasley has pleaded not guilty and will be tried in January.
