Page Six has received court documents indicating that Jen Shah’s sentence in her federal fraud case has been delayed.
Due to a “scheduling conflict on the part of multiple members of the Government team,” U.S. attorney Damian Williams asked on Thursday for the sentencing date for Shah to be rescheduled from November 18, 2022, to December 15, 2022. A little time later, Judge Sidney H. Stein granted the motion.
Coincidentally, Shah’s best friend Meredith Marks was born on the 15th of December.
After initially disputing allegations that she committed wire fraud in connection with a telemarking scheme, the “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star pled guilty at a surprise hearing back in July.
We communicated with one another via email and long-distance phone calls. Customers were mostly over the age of 55, which I was expecting. It was reported by Matthew Russell Lee of Inner City Press that the reality personality apologized profusely in court.
For her guilty plea, the US attorney dropped the money laundering conspiracy allegation. A 30-year sentence is possible for Shah, 49.
It is alleged that the Bravolebrity and her aide, Stuart Smith, defrauded hundreds of people, mostly the elderly, out of a total of $2.5 million.
Even though Shah had previously disputed the claims and blamed her success on “direct response marketing,” she has yet to respond to her new plea.
A new interview from Season 1 of “RHOSLC” features the fraudster bragging about how much money she had stolen.
Direct response marketing is what I’ve been doing for the past two decades. She boasted, “I make millions,” in a 2019 interview. You gotta do what cha gotta do to make ends meet. “I’m just like the Wizard of Oz.”
