A woman has been sentenced to 35 years in prison for catfishing a Florida boy using her own daughter’s photos.

In October 2019, 45-year-old Linda Paolini pleaded guilty to manufacturing child pornography and online enticement of a minor for tricking a Florida teen into believing he was interacting with a 16-year-old girl, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania announced Monday.

According to federal prosecutors, Paolini used Instagram to engage in sexually explicit exchanges with a 16-year-old Florida boy and coerce him to produce and send her videos of him masturbating.

‘She did this by assuming the persona of a 16-year-old girl, sending the boy provocative images of her own daughter in order to manipulate him into thinking that an attractive, same-aged girl was in love with him,’ according to a statement from the Justice Department.

She and the victim exchanged over 50,000 messages over the course of a few months. ‘She maliciously manipulated a child into making and sending her pornography of himself.
And when that wasn’t enough. She then manipulated him into attempting suicide.

She also admitted to ‘catfishing at least two other boys.
