A man was arrested, charged and convicted of fraud after being hired as a contract killer and not carrying out the task, prosecutors in Norway said.
Now, the 21-year-old man was sentenced to a fine $1,300 for fraud because he accepted an employment contract without intending to carry it out.
According to the police investigation, the man agreed to take the cash in exchange for killing a 17-year-old girl. However, since he never intended to kill the target, police charged him with fraud.
The man pleaded guilty and paid the fine. Another 21-year-old man, who ordered the murder, was sentenced to two years in prison.
The man pleaded guilty to conspiracy, saying that the teen rejected his sexual advances. He paid $9,300 for the task of killing the girl, but the other man said he received only $6,300.
