Jen Shah is a versatile personality who only thinks about growing her wealth. Her propensity, however, took her in the wrong direction, towards fraud. According to reports, the “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star has recently been sentenced to 6.5 years in jail for committing wire fraud.
Shah recently received a sentence of 6.5 years in prison and 5 years of supervised release. She broke down in tears in front of the judge and apologized profusely for what she had committed, saying, “with the proper medication I can now see what happened.” She arrived at the courthouse in New York City dressed in cheetah-print attire, making it easy for the judge to identify the defendant.
Jen was detained in 2021 for allegedly using a telemarketing strategy to target and trick people out of their money. She was not pled guilty at that time and her attorney declared her “totally innocent.”
All of that changed in July when she “accepted full responsibilities of her actions,” and entered a plea of guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with telemarketing. Prosecutors decided to drop one count of conspiracy to commit laundering as part of their agreement with her.
The agreement called for up to 14 years in prison and the potential payment of $9 million in restitution to the victims of the scam while Jen herself has asked for 3 years. RHOSLC fans will certainly want to keep their eye on this one and Thirsty will keep you updated.
