Jennifer Emmi, the Colorado animal rights attorney accused of plotting to have her estranged husband’s new girlfriend murdered, has pleaded guilty to multiple charges, PEOPLE confirms.
Emmi, 43, appeared in court June 28 and entered guilty pleas to seven felonies and four misdemeanors: solicitation to commit second-degree murder, menacing, heat-of-passion strangulation, attempting to influence a judge, violation of a bail bond, retaliation against a witness, stalking, criminal mischief, reckless driving, tampering and two counts of child abuse. . .
Authorities in Colorado had accused Emmi, who founded the Animal Law Center, a nonprofit animal ranch, of offering one of her ranch hands $100,000 to murder her estranged husband’s new girlfriend — the au pair the couple had hired to care for their three children.
Emmi asked the ranch hand to “take care” of the new girlfriend — meaning kill her — adding that the woman would not be missed if she were killed.
Emmi, who appeared regularly on regional news shows and also hosted a Facebook show about animals, was arrested in late January following a six-month investigation and charged with solicitation of first-degree murder, two counts of retaliating against a witness or victim and three counts of stalking.
