Logan Hetherington, the man who took a plea deal in the death of Layla Aiken, was transferred from the Lee County jail to a corrections facility on Thursday morning.

Hetherington, 20, was transferred to the Department of Corrections facility in Doral where he will serve two years in a boot camp— before house arrest and probation.

Layla’s family approved of the plea deal that punished Hetherington as a youthful offender, allowing a lighter sentence.

Layla’s death last March prompted a number of safety discussions at school bus stops.
