Red Oak Teen Jailed For Trying To Hire Hitman

By Giles Hudson, CBS 11 News

FERRIS (CBSDFW.COM) – A 17-year-old Ferris High School student is in jail, accused of trying to hire someone to kill his girlfriend.

The student, Steve Pierot, is being held at the Wayne McCollum Detention Center in Ellis County on charges of conspiracy to commit capital murder and criminal solicitation of a minor.

Pierot, who lives in Red Oak, was arrested last Thursday, and is being held on $100,000 in bonds stemming from the two counts.

Ferris ISD Superintendent Mike Bodine declined comment directly, citing the pending investigation. He did tell CBS 11 the threat was limited to the girl involved.

Ferris ISD Police Chief Corey Morrison did not return a call seeking comment.

As to the general issues of campus safety, Bodine said “We’re always vigilant and we pay attention to threats and deal with them according to our discipline management plan in order to ensure the safety of our students and staff.”

Bodine said the investigation has been turned over the Ellis County District Attorney’s office.  The district first became aware of the threat around February 23, a day before the arrest.

Bodine said he was not sending home a letter with parents about the incident.

    1. kizy says:

  5. Joe says:

    Cheers…
    Now he is going to be the “girlfriend” of some guy in Jail.
    I wonder if they will kill him if he say “NO” to the guys in Jail…

  6. Rodney says:

    I thought most guys preferred to kill their own girlfriends not hire it out !

  7. Rodney says:

    Also most of these cases are entrapment ! In this case someone probably over heard this kid venting about his ex and told the police then they sent someone out to entrap him!

    this boy was innocent i am a student a ferris high school a senior to be exact this was an act of jealously and revenge. if yall only new the real story

      I was wondering if her accusations were false. Maybe that will come out in trial. Now I’m far more concerned about the grammatical teachings of the Ferris High School (or lack thereof). I guess if you fire all the teachers you can’t expect the children to use punctuation. On the other hand, the spelling is almost perfect so it breaks even, right?

      1. Blehh. says:

        They were false. And Ferris doesn’t teach. All they are worried about is our uniform. If our shirt is BARELY untucked, we get sent to ISS. They don’t care if we learn, they just want the governments money.

  10. gloria garza says:

    he is innocent!!!! i am a senior at ferris high school and this is foul play….this was a act of a girl with an intent of jealously and revenge on her mind!

  11. gloria says:

    agreed!!!!

  12. anonymous says:

    he goes to my school???

  13. cookies in the dark says:

    I’m a student at Ferris High School and Steve deserves what he got. The fact that he was always talking about people and that he actually did threaten his ex-girlfriend is a potential and immediate danger on her life! HONESTLY PUT YOURSELF IN HER SHOES AND SEE HOW SHE FELT! Everyone is threatening and talking mess about the poor girl. It is NOT ok, to infringe someone’s rights. Once you step on someones rights then your rights should be taking away! I hate how people play dumb and try to defend this thing, I will NOT call him human because what he planned to do was inhumane!
