Pennsylvania teen pleads guilty in abortion attempt on girlfriend
A western Pennsylvania teenager accused of trying to kill his girlfriend's unborn child by putting a cow hormone in her drink has pleaded guilty in juvenile court to attempted third-degree murder and aggravated assault.

Blair County District Attorney Richard Consiglio calls it "a terrible, terrible crime" and says he wants the 17-year-old Williamsburg-area teen under court supervision until he reaches the age of 21.

Defense attorney Theodore Krol says his client was a scared 16-year-old who found out that his girlfriend was pregnant and went to a friend and adult for advice. Prosecutors say the three decided to put the cow hormone ProstaMate in the girl's drink in March 2008. The child was born without incident and is now a year old and healthy.

The other teenager pleaded guilty to aggravated assault. Forty-seven year old Jonathan Imler Sr., of Williamsburg, is awaiting trial on charges of attempted criminal homicide and other counts.
