Idaho adult film actress to be sentenced Tuesday for hiring a hitman
COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho – A Post Falls woman who once acted in adult films will be sentenced in federal court Tuesday for hiring a hitman to kill a man, identified in court documents as the father of her child.
Much of the detail in the case has been sealed to protect the victims.
Katrina Danforth, who also goes by the name Lynn Pleasant, pleaded guilty to two counts of using interstate commerce in the commission of murder for hire. She admitted hiring a hitman, meeting him in person, calling him on the phone and mailing him a thank you card with a $2,500 cash down payment. The hitman was an undercover police officer.
Danforth faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.
In court filings, Danforth’s attorney says she should face the low level of the sentencing guidelines.
According to court records, Danforth has two children, including a child she shares with the victim in the case.
Danforth’s attorney writes in court filings Danforth acted in adult films, saying that she “did porn for the money.” Court records also show she has been a child care worker and has a license to do nails, along with training in massage therapy.
Danforth will be sentenced at 1:30 Tuesday
