PORTLAND, CA (AP) -- An adult film actress from California faces up to a year in prison and a $100,000 fine after pleading guilty to intentionally failing to pay her federal income taxes.
Federal prosecutors said Friday that 39-year-old Janine M. James, also known as Janine Lindemulder, of Huntington Beach, California, failed to pay more than $200,000 in taxes owed to the Internal Revenue Service.
As part of her plea agreement, James admitted making a down payment on a $647,000 house in Eugene, and purchasing a new Jeep and recreational vehicle while knowing she owed the taxes.
Sentencing was set for October 24 in U.S. District Court in Eugene.
