Jen Shah was arrested back in March 2021. She has since been charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering, she could face a maximum of 50 years, if convicted for both charges.
Here’s what we know as of recently with information pertaining to the case. Shah had requested to be excused from her court appearance that was to take place on March 1, 2022. The reason it was requested was due to Jen living in the state of Utah and proceedings are taking place in New York. The request was granted.
On March 2, 2022, it was reported that Jen’s trial is now being postponed to July 11, 2022, for now. Court documents cite that there are various pending motions and subpoenas. One of the motions that Jen wants is the exclusion of any clips from her reality show RHOSLC. She has requested to keep that footage from Bravo out of her court case because the show is “heavily edited to show a certain lifestyle” and she doesn’t want any of that affecting her real life. Jen’s lawyers also filed a Motion to Dismiss against the Jen Shah documentary that aired of Hulu due to it possibly “poisoning the jury pool.” Is Jen being truthful or is this just to help her case?
Will these motions help the reality star stay from behind bars? Only time will tell but what we do know is that Jen’s assistant who originally pleaded not guilty with her, has changed his plea to guilty in the telemarketing scheme. He admitted to committing perjury and hiding funds back in 2021. However, Shah has maintained her innocence and even stated on an Instagram Live “I think what people don’t understand is, here in America, you’re innocent until proven guilty and I’m innocent.”
