Ex-HS Football Players Sentenced In Robbery That Left Teen Dead

FORT WORTH (June 13, 2014) Curtis Fortenberry, 23, and Terrance Crumley, 23, were sentenced to prison Friday in Fort Worth after pleading guilty to charges stemming from a bungled robbery attempt that resulted in gunfire that left a teenage accomplice dead.

Crumley and Fortenberry were football players in 2008 at North Crowley High School.

They had both received football scholarships at East Central University in Oklahoma.

The two men reached a plea deal Friday in the June 2012 death of Claudia Hidic, 17.

Fortenberry pleaded guilty to murder and was sentenced to 33 years in prison.

Police say it was a bullet from Fortenberry's weapon that hit Hidic.

Crumley admitted to tampering with evidence and received a 15-year sentence.
