EUGENE, Ore. — An adult film actress who admitted failing to pay taxes was ordered to serve 6 months in prison and pay almost $300,000 in outstanding taxes.

Adult film actress and former Penthouse model Janine M. James, also known as Janine Lindemulder, 40, of Huntington Beach, Calif, was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Eugene, Ore.
James pleaded guilty in August 2008 to charges she failed to pay outstanding federal income taxes.

From 2000 through 2006, James, while owing more than $200,000 in federal taxes, spent over $750,000 on homes, vehicles, furniture and a piano, while failing to voluntarily make any payments to the IRS. Those purchases included a home in Eugene, Ore.

On Monday, United States Magistrate Judge Thomas Coffin ordered James to serve 6 months in federal prison, followed by one year of supervised release.

As part of her post-prison supervised release, James must participate in a residential community corrections center for up to six months. In addition, James must pay all her outstanding taxes,which currently are about $294,000.

James was ordered to report to prison on March 10, 2009.
The Internal Revenue Service investigated the case. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Chris Cardani.

 

NL-How does Janine pay all she owes and get 6 months in prison, one year of parole? There were rumors that she knew she owed the back taxes and just didn’t pay them while she proceeded to spend close to a million dollars on a house and cars. Maybe that just pissed the IRS off. Because I know of so many cases of people who owe back taxes and get a break, make a deal, and just payment is enough. I have known Janine for 14 years, and always thought she was a nice person and a good mother. People don’t seem to go to prison for back taxes unless they want to send them there for other reasons and that is all they can get them on. Anyone else have ideas?Was Janine on the black list for something else?
