Jen Shah has the rest of 2022 to enjoy her Shah-mazing life before possibly being sentenced to more than a decade behind bars.
On November 23, the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star’s legal team requested that Jen’s December 15 sentencing be pushed until early 2023.
“With the government’s consent, we respectfully request the Court adjourn Ms. Shah’s sentencing to January 6, 2023, 2:30 p.m. and adjust the filing deadlines for parties’ sentencing memoranda accordingly,” read the letter Jen’s lawyer Priya Chaudhry wrote to Judge Sidney Stein of the Southern District of New York.
This isn’t the first time Jen’s sentencing has been pushed. Back in October, the government pushed Jen’s sentencing from November 28 to December 15.
In July 2022, 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.
