Nolen Pleads Guilty in Franklin County Murder-For-Hire Plot

Posted: Updated:

In court Tuesday, former Franklin County kindergarten teacher Angela Nolen pled guilty for her role in an alleged murder-for-hire plot involving her ex-husband.

The former Sontag Elementary School teacher entered the plea in Franklin County circuit court and will be sentenced Aug. 9.

Some quotes from a transcript of Nolen's meeting with an undercover state police officer (who Nolen thought was a hit man) on Feb. 19:

UC (undercover officer): "Are you interested in him just being beaten? Killed?"

Nolen: "Something that would eliminate him from this earth without me being in fear constantly."

---

UC: "How much money were you thinking?"

Nolen: "Ummm…"

UC: "I mean it's not cheap to have somebody killed, you understand."

---

UC: "How much heartache is 10 grand going to cause you?"

Nolen: "Really big." (laughs)

---

UC: "When I do this, you understand, he's going to be dead and he's not going to be coming back. And there is no… there is no turning back once you and I part ways other than receiving my money today."

Nolen: "Umm-hmm."

---

UC: "It's $4,000 for a man's life. Well, half of it. We're looking at $8,000 so, once I kill him, I will contact you and I will need another $4,000. You have any trouble with that?"

Nolen: "No. I'll find it."

---

UC: "So you and I are completely clear, you want him dead, gone, period."

Nolen: "Umm-hmm."

Franklin County commonwealth's attorney Tim Allen said he will now try to talk to Nolen about her co-defendant, Cathy Bennett.
