MARION, S.C. (AP) - A Marion County man is going to prison after being convicted of taking part in a supposed murder-for-hire plot that never materialized.

The Morning News of Florence reported Thursday (https://bit.ly/V0rxTq ) that 45-year-old Daryl Moran was convicted of criminal conspiracy but acquitted of solicitation to commit murder after a three-day trial in Marion County general sessions court.

Judge D. Craig Brown sentenced Moran to five years in prison, suspended to two years in prison and three years of probation.

Moran was arrested in November 2010. At the time, Marion County Sheriff Mark Richardson said Moran had offered to pay another man to kill the boyfriend of his ex-wife, but the plan never came to fruition.
