Women Pleads Guilty In Extortion Case
A 26 year old Alabama woman has pleaded guilty to felony coercion and will testify against a pimp. Shannon Gura made a tearful confession in Hennepin County District Court. She was part of an extortion scheme that ended with a Bloomington man committing suicide. 57 year old Daniel Kreye took his own life after Gura tried to blackmail him by threatening to reveal an explicit photo and inform his wife. Kreye left a suicide note saying those threatening to expose him were demanding 500 thousand dollars. Kreye had paid 65 thousand dollars. The alleged pimp, 46 year old Rickey Pouncil, goes on trial in February.
