A Florida man was arrested for allegedly trying to hire a hit man to kill a faculty member at his high school, authorities said Friday.

Nicholas Robert Godfrey, an 18-year-old senior at Fivay High School, about 40 miles north of Tampa, was charged with first-degree attempt to solicit murder, Pasco County Sheriff's deputies said.

Detectives said they have messages Godfrey wrote on Instagram seeking a professional killer.

“I need a guy who could kill someone,” Godfrey allegedly wrote in one of the messages, offering $100,000 "for the guy's head."

Even if Godfrey had no real intentions of killing the school staffer, the threat is itself a serious crime, Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said.

1. No quid pro quo. If he has a Republican judge, he should be OK.

2. Good point! The judge would say that he offered dollars, not quid even though he was seeking a pro.

3. I'm guessing that doing his homework would be a lot easier.

And cheaper.

Just use the Mulvaney defense.
