Jen Shah’s fate is left hanging in the balance once again!
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star’s upcoming sentencing has been postponed due to a scheduling conflict. Jen’s sentencing was supposed to go down on November 28; however, the government has requested a new date due to a conflict.
Jen will now be sentenced on December 15. There’s nothing merry about being sentenced to prison during the holiday season.
This comes just months after Jen changed her plea to guilty and agreed to a plea deal instead of heading to trial in July.
The reality TV star pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with telemarketing. The US attorney agreed to drop conspiracy to commit money laundering as part of Jen’s plea deal.
As part of the deal, Jen faces “up to 168 months” in prison. She also has “agreed to forfeit $6 million, and restitution of $9 million.” The mom of two also waived her right to an appeal as part of her plea deal.
During her July court appearance, the reality TV star finally admitted her guilt and apologized for her actions.
“Wire fraud, offering services with little to no value. We used interstate telephones and emails. I knew many of the purchasers were over the age of 55. I am so sorry,” Jen stated.
She also admitted that she knew what she was doing was “wrong and illegal.”
Before this, Jen adamantly denied the charges against her, which include conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering in connection to a nationwide telemarketing fraud scheme against the elderly.
