Jen Shah’s sentencing is next month and the reality star is asking the courts for mercy. After pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, Jen is facing anything from 11 to 14 years in federal prison.
The Housewife submitted a letter to the judge, titled “How I got involved in the situation?”
“The terrible business decisions I made and professional relationships I developed stemmed from some personal painful experiences that I was going through in my life,” Jen wrote in a letter to the judge per CNN.
Jen’s attorneys argued that she wasn’t a “kingpin” of the telemarketing scheme and that her sentence should be lower than some of the other co-conspirators. Her attorneys argued that she never had direct contact with the victims. But prosecutors alleged that she came up with people to target for the scheme.
“Just as Jen Shah has never been a ‘housewife,’ little else is real about her persona and caricature as portrayed by the editors of RHOSLC,” her attorneys say.
She is asking for just 3 years in prison.
