Jen Shah just heard some good news about her legal situation.
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star is now scheduled to get out of jail in August 2028, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons’ inmate database. a whole year before her first sentence.
Last month, the 49-year-old man showed up at the Bryan Federal Prison Camp (FPC) in Bryan, Texas.
We don’t know why Shah’s sentence has been cut down right now.
The Bravo star pleaded guilty in July 2021 after she was arrested in March 2021 for her major role in a nationwide telemarketing scheme.
Shah was sentenced to 78 months (6.5 years) in prison in January after she admitted that she had lied to senior citizens about possible business opportunities in order to get their financial information.
She then gave this information to whoever paid the most money for it.
“I am sorry. “My actions hurt people who did nothing wrong,” Shah said when she was sentenced. “I want to say I’m sorry and that I’m doing everything I can to make enough money to pay restitution.”
Her attorney later added:
“Jen Shah is determined to make her victims whole and to change her life.
“She is committed to serving her sentence with courage and purpose. She is driven by her desire to make up for the hurt she has caused and to help others in her new community.
Earlier this month, meanwhile, Shah released her very first diary entry from behind bars.
“I feel physically sick,” Shah complained at the time.
“I thought I could do this but I’ve decided I can’t.
“I want to go home right now, but I know that is impossible. Please Allah help me, please.”
Shah said in one of her entries that she had an anxiety attack just two miles from the Bryan Federal Prison Camp in Bryan, Texas, right before she was sent there.
Jen said, “My worst fear and the unthinkable were about to happen.” “I have to leave my sweet husband and my sweet baby Omar.”
Shah said that when she got to the federal prison, she hugged Omar “as tight as I could” and “cried while burying my head in his chest.”
The woman who lied and broke the law also hugged her husband and told him he was “the love of my life” while tears kept “streaming down” her face.
Shah’s lawyer came to this conclusion after she was sentenced last year:
“Her road ahead will be full of obstacles.
“But with the love and support of her family and friends, Jen is ready to face these challenges head-on and come out of this a better person who has a positive effect on others.”
