The fraud case against Jen shah it just continues to get worse as the federal government now claims that True Salt Lake City Housewives The star is part of a group of “most guilty” suspects.
Federal prosecutors recently called Jen a “sophisticated criminal” by rejecting her claims that the feds coerced her into making incriminating statements after her arrest on March 30. And judging from the new court documents, it is now obvious why they labeled her as such.
According to TMZ, the United States Attorneys have included her in the “Level A” category in the alleged telemarketing scheme, alleging that she is one of six people in that category.
Additionally, prosecutors say two of the six people have already been convicted in the case. One person received 78 months in federal prison and the other 60 months.
Apparently, Jen, along with the others in this “Level A” category, were “high-level participants” in the scam, as they allegedly continued to engage in illegal activities despite knowing that charges were imminent. According to the documents, these participants are “responsible for orchestrating the larger scheme.”
In addition, they state that Jen “obtained leads directly from potential customer sources and provided them, among others, to coaching sales floors operated in Utah and Nevada.” However, he doesn’t stop there as the reality star and his “first assistant”, Stuart smith, allegedly owned his own sales floor in Manhattan, which prosecutors believe played a huge role in the scheme.
As fans well know, a large portion of the victims in this case are said to be vulnerable elderly citizens, which is what makes Jen’s alleged crimes all the more troublesome.
However, Jen’s attorney, Priya chaudhry, says that “he is totally innocent”, and calls this last statement a “fabricated accusation”.
Speaking of problematic, according to a recent report, Bravo has created her own category, and Jen is said to be in it.
“Bravo has a list of his most troublesome stars. Jen and Erika [Jayne] they’re on top, ”a source told Life & Style earlier this month.
