An adult film actress was sentenced to 10 years in prison after being convicted of hiring a hit man in a failed hit plan to kill the father of one of her children.
Katrina L. Danforth, 32, who appeared in pornographic films as Lynn Pleasant and Lynn Passion, was sentenced on Tuesday in a courtroom in Idaho.
She was accused of agreeing to pay for a hit man, who was later revealed as an undercover police officer, $ 5,000 to kill a former partner in 2018.
Judge B. Lynn Winmill of the American district also ordered Danforth to pay a fine of $ 1,000 after three years of imprisonment under supervision.
Danforth pleaded guilty to two counts of the use of interstate trading facilities when committing murder in August 2019. She originally pleaded not guilty of any crimes.
Defense attorney has argued that Danforth had a fleeting childhood, including sexual violence, before going to adult entertainment.
Danforth, also known as Lynn Pleasant and Lynn Passion, said she wanted to kill the father of one of her children for allegedly abusing the child
Similarly, Danforth said on Tuesday that she was pursuing the terrible conspiracy because she believed the father had abused the child.
Prosecutors said the claim was unfounded and had no evidence.
Winmill called Danforth’s 20-minute speech a breakdown of responsibility for her actions and was concerned about her attempt to justify the situation.
He recommended sending Danforth to the Federal Correctional Institute, Dublin, California, a prison with little security for women.
According to The Spokesman Review, investigators became aware of the massacre after Danforth had trusted a friend that she wanted to kill the father of one of her two children.
Danforth and the father, only known as R.H., were in a constant custody battle at that time.
The friend passed on the contact details of a hit man to Danforth, who agreed to meet the pseudo-criminal in October 2018 to discuss the murder for $ 5,000.
The murder plot began when Danforth (photo) contacted a “hired killer” to R.H. to murder in October 2018 after he trusted a friend that she wanted the man killed
She communicated with the ‘assassin’ on November 9, twice on November 10 and once on November 19.
“She had specific requirements that the assassin had to fulfill, such as (the victim’s) body to be found, and she didn’t care if others living in the house were harmed as long as her own child wasn’t harmed,” said US lawyer Traci Whelan. .
In court, prosecutors played a recording of the conversation at which Danforth indicated that she did not even care if the other two children of R.H. were harmed. At that time they were two and four years old.

She sent the alleged assassin a thank you card with a $ 2500 down payment for the murder to his address in Montana. The other half had to be paid after R.H. was dead.
Danforth was arrested at Spokane International Airport in December 2018 after spending a week in Hawaii.
About the arrest, she said KHQ: “It was very early in the morning, so I was particularly tired of my flight and then shocked, but I didn’t want to panic.”
Her IMDb page lists Danforth of eight pornographic films from 2005 to 2010.
