Though Jen Shah’s sentence is now lowered by one yr, she continues to be set to spend the majority of the “roaring” 2020s behind bars.
This is not going to be straightforward — not for her, and never for her household.
Along with the emotional toll, there are monetary considerations. Jen’s now not a actuality star. And he or she’s out of the wire fraud enterprise.
Apparently, there’s some leftover Actual Housewives cash within the combine … however Jen owes a lot of cash to her victims.
Today, Jen Shah is now not a Actual Housewife of Salt Lake Metropolis.
She is, as an alternative, an actual inmate at Federal Jail Camp Bryan in Texas.
Jen reported to the jail in February, and is serving a five-and-a-half-year sentence for fraud.
The US Solar experiences that Shed Media, Inc — the manufacturing firm behind Bravo’s Actual Housewives franchise — will supply up Jen’s wages from the present as much as the Clerk of Courtroom.
That is on the request of the federal government.
Jen’s sum of leftover wages will go in the direction of the $6,695,466 that she owes in restitution in the direction of the victims of her insidious telemarketing rip-off.
Based on the Discover of Settlement Order, “Shed Media, Inc shall release to Shah 75 percent of earnings withheld between January 10 through February 17, 2023.”
In the meantime, Shed will fork over “25 percent of her disposable earnings from the sentencing date (January 10, 2023) through her surrender date (February 17, 2023).”
And through her time in jail, “Shed Media, Inc shall pay 100% of each periodic payment due or owing to shah to the Clerk of Court” all through her incarceration.
And it doesn’t cease there.
“Upon release from custody, when earnings or income may be required necessary and reasonable living expenses,” the court docket submitting continued.
It went on to notice that “Shed Media, Inc. shall pay 15% of gross monthly income or 25% of disposable earnings, whichever is greater.”
We don’t really feel sorry for Jen, however we do marvel what the court docket sick take into account “reasonable living expenses.” Most of us know the acute poverty that the federal government expects folks on incapacity to endure. And that’s only one instance.
In the meantime, Shed Media says that the owe Jen $34,500 — which quantities to solely $20,000 after taxes and unspecified prices consider, apparently.
The federal government has additionally requested for dibs on cash from different companies — NBCUniversal, Warner Bros, and even Cameo have obtained comparable notices.
It doesn’t sound like Shah’s camp has objected.
That stated, together with her attorneys in search of to drop her as a consumer over unpaid charges, that may not imply something.
Typically, good folks in determined conditions do unlawful issues to feed their households. That doesn’t appear to use to Jen Shah’s crimes in any means, form, or type.
