An adult film actress from Idaho has admitted to trying to hire a hitman so that they could kill the father of one of her kids, and she reportedly made it clear she was ambivalent about the possibility of any collateral damage.

Katrina Danforth, of Post Falls pleaded guilty Monday, August 6, to a federal murder-for-hire charge, the Spokesman-Review in Spokesman, Washington reports.

Danforth apparently told one of her friends that she’d like to have the father of one of her children murdered, and that friend gave her the number of a hitman — only problem was that the hitman turned out to be an undercover police officer in Montana.

She met up with him in October 2018 and  “had specific requirements that the hitman was to accomplish, such as [the intended victim’s] body had to be found and [she] did not care if others who lived in the home were harmed as long as her own child was not harmed,” according to court records obtained by the Spokesman-Review.

Later, prosecutors say she sent him a thank you card with $2,500 in it from Idaho to the fake hitman’s home in Montana as a down payment. In all, she agreed to pay him $5,000 in exchange for the murder of her former lover, who lived in Idaho.

Danforth was 31 when she was arrested by federal agents in December at Spokane International Airport in Washington State on five counts of using interstate commerce in the commission of murder for hire.

She has done adult film work under the names Lynn Pleasant and Lynn Passion. She made eight adult films between 2005 and 2010, her IMDb page states. On her Instagram profile, she refers to herself as a porn star from North Dakota.

The intended victim was not harmed.

“I don’t really know, precisely …” Danforth told local outlet KHQ when asked when she was arrested. She said she was shocked over the allegations. “I would just say more stand by and [...] follow along with me and find out what goes on and how it goes.”

She now faces a maximum of 10 years in prison.
