Sex Offender Charged With Sexually Abusing Middle Schooler Allegedly Sought To Have Her Killed- Breaking 911
A federal grand jury indicted a 28-year-old man for allegedly enticing a 12-year-old girl to engage in sexual activity and then launching a murder-for-hire plot from within the state prison.
Chandler John Cardente, while being held at the Adult Correctional Institutions, communicated with another person about murdering the minor female. He offered $200 in cash and equipment worth $1,500 for her murder.
Police say Cardente lured a 12-year-old girl to run away from Burrillville Middle School by posing as a 17-year-old online.
Cardente allegedly dumped the girl on the side of the road after learning that police were looking for him, and then made plans to have the girl killed while he was being held in state prison, the U.S. Attorney said. The girl was found curled up on the side of the road after Cardente threw her out of the car.
Cardente allegedly told a detective that he needed to kill a 12-year-old witness before he got indicted. It is unclear whether he entered a plea or if he has retained an attorney who can speak on his behalf.
Cardente is charged with enticing a minor, committing a felony offense involving a minor while being a registered sex offender, and interstate murder-for-hire.
