Cops: Mom paid $25 for teens to mug high school student

Update: Troopers take case from borough cops because of conflict

MILTON - Milton borough police have withdrawn charges against a woman who allegedly paid $25 to an unidentified man who savagely beat a high school student after school on Tuesday after the Northumberland County district attorney says there appears to be a conflict of interest because of the relationship between the woman and a borough police officer.

Police said that when confronted about the allegations, Veronica Ulrich told police that she was upset because the boy had attacked her daughter and beaten her "like she was a boy."

Ulrich told police that she drove around town Monday looking for the teen herself and when she couldn't find him, she came across a small group of teens and asked if any of them knew the boy she was upset with. One person in the group said he knew the boy she was targeting.

Ulrich allegedly told the unidentified suspect that "she wanted (the victim) to be hurt in the same way that he had hurt her daughter," and asked if they would beat the boy up for $25. The suspect agreed and she allegedly gave him the $25 and left.

Police said that the boy was attacked moments after he left school Tuesday afternoon, when he was attacked by two suspects. Police said the boy suffered a broken nose and other injuries.

State police at Milton have been asked to handle the case.
