A second of three defendants charged in the June 19 kidnapping and battery case of a 14-year-old Jefferson County girl has agreed to a plea agreement.

Hailey P. Bartley, 16, of Hanover, appeared before Jefferson Circuit Court Judge D.J. Mote Wednesday to withdraw a previous plea of not guilty to nine felony charges and plead guilty to one count of criminal confinement, a Level 3 felony.

Bartley originally faced one count of kidnapping, two counts of criminal confinement and one count of aiding to commit criminal confinement, all Level 3 felonies; battery resulting in serious bodily injury and intimidation, both Level 5 felonies; intimidation, strangulation and attempting to obstruct justice, all Level 6 felonies.

Bartley and Elani Hines, 16, of Madison, were charged with forcing a 14-year-old girl from a friend’s residence on Robin Court on June 19, transporting her to a residence on Skyline Drive — both against the girl’s will — and then physically assaulting her and threatening additional violence if she told anyone.

A third defendant who was charged as an accomplice, Jaylon Walker Wayne Pace, 19, of Madison, reached an agreement last month to plead guilty to one count of aiding, inducing or causing an offense (kidnapping), a Level 3 felony, at a pre-trial hearing in Jefferson Circuit Court. He is scheduled to be sentenced at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30.

According to court documents, under the plea agreement Bartley gave up her right to a trial and appeal and “agreed with the facts as established” in the case and “admitted those facts are true.”

According to a report filed by the investigating officer, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Deputy Charles Miller, included in the original affidavit, the 14-year-old victim showed signs of “significant swelling to her head and face” with the right side “heavily bruised and swelled.” He also noted “bruising to the tops of her hands” and that her hair “appeared freshly trimmed” and she had “patches of hair missing and her hair was very unevenly cut.” In addition, there was video evidence of some of the attack.

Mote took Bartley’s plea deal under advisement while ordering the probation department to complete a pre-sentence investigation prior to a sentencing hearing at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13.

By pleading guilty to the single charge, Bartley faces a sentence of from three to 12 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000 plus court costs. However, she could receive a suspended sentence or probation in the case but the prosecutor’s office has asked that if that does happen she enroll in a supervised probation program at her own cost.

Mote revoked Bartley’s bail and ordered her held without bail pending sentencing.

Hines, the third defendant in the case, is charged with one count of kidnapping and three counts of criminal confinement, all Level 3 felonies; battery resulting in serious bodily injury, a Level 5 felony; and intimidation, obstruction of justice and attempted obstruction of justice, all Level 6 felonies.
