RHOSLC’s Jen Shah To Go For Mental Health Rehabilitation
Documents obtained by Page Six reveal that The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star must enter a mental health treatment program after prison time.
Jen bagged six-and-a-half years behind bars for participating in a fraudulent scheme. The disgraced star will be under supervised release for five years once she’s set free. She is expected to participate in the program at that time.
The 49-year-old must also continue to take her prescribed medication when she gets out unless a doctor says otherwise.
Moreover, Jen’s probation officer must sign off on the mental health program she chooses. In addition, she will undergo drug testing 15 days after her release and “at least” two other drug tests thereafter, as determined by the court.
The court also ordered her to offer restitution in installments for 15 percent of her gross income.
Jen Shah’s Reaction To Her Sentencing
The RHOSLC star initially protested her innocence when law enforcement arrested her. Feds arrested Jen in front of the cameras while filming for RHOSLC was ongoing.
She claimed for months that she would “fight” the case because she was “innocent.” However, Jen turned around and pleaded guilty right before her sentencing.
The 49-year-old also accepted her sentencing and apologized to all the victims of the telemarketing scheme she ran. She acknowledged her wrongs and promised to pay restitution to those she defrauded.
“I am sorry. My actions have hurt innocent people. I want to apologize by saying I am doing all I can to earn the funds to pay restitution,” she said while in court.
Jen’s attitude to her wrongs and sentencing shows her remorse. Hopefully, the TV personality learns her lessons and takes her mental health more seriously.
