Jen Shah is asking the judge in her upcoming trial for telemarketing fraud case to dismiss the charges against her. She contends that federal agents said too much to Hulu documentary filmmakers. The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star says a couple of special agents were interviewed for a Hulu documentary, and gave out details regarding the investigation that were not publicly available.

Shah also said the agents showed clear bias against her. They spoke of her lavish lifestyle and called her a fraudster, TMZ reported. Shah even went so far as to name the agents.

Homeland Security special agents Rick Patel is alleged to have commented on the circumstances regarding Shah’s arrest. Agent Angieszka Norman, Shah states, made prejudicial statements about her hiding money in offshore accounts. The agent also suggested that the entire case against Jen Shah came from narcotics ring investigation.

Shah was arrested in March for her role in the telemarketing scheme that scammed unknown numbers of people out of their money. Her trial is set for March of 2022. Jen has maintained her innocence in the matter all along.


She claims the agents spoiled any chance she has for a fair trial by even participating. The far reach of Hulu, she believes, tainted the jury pool. Shah believes the entire program is based on a presumption of her guilt.

Jen Shah is seeking permission to file a motion for dismissal in the case. She also wants the agents sanctioned. Shah is also requesting that the judge orders the feds to turn over any other info about other media collaborations Homeland Security may have.
