Jen Shah has just received some positive legal news.
According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons inmate database, the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star is now expected to be released from prison in August 2028… a year earlier than she original sentence.
The 49-year-old reported to Bryan Federal Prison Camp (FPC) last month in Bryan, Texas.
We do not know exactly at the moment Why Shah’s sentence was reduced.
The Bravo personality pleaded guilty last July after being arrested in March 2021 for her starring role in a nationwide telemarketing program.
Shah was later sentenced to 78 months (6.5 years) in prison in January after she admitted misleading elderly people about potential business opportunities in order to obtain their financial information.
She then sold this financial information to the highest bidder.
“I’m sorry. My actions have hurt innocent people,” Shah said during his sentencing. “I want to apologize saying I’m doing everything I can to earn the funds to pay restitution.”
His attorney later added:
“Jen Shah’s resolve to heal her victims and change her life is unwavering.
“She is committed to serving her sentence with courage and determination, fueled by her desire to right the harm she has caused and to help others in her new community.”
Earlier this month, meanwhile, Shah posted his first-ever diary entry from behind bars.
“I feel physically ill,” Shah complained at the time.
“I thought I could do it, but I decided I couldn’t.
“I want to go home right away, but I know it’s impossible. Please Allah help me please.
Among his entries, Shah also claimed to have suffered an anxiety attack just two miles from Bryan’s federal prison camp in Bryan, Texas, just before he became an official convict.
“My worst fear and the unimaginable was about to happen,” Jen explained. “Having to say goodbye to my sweet husband and precious baby Omar.”
Arriving at the federal prison, Shah said she hugged Omar “as hard as she could” and “cried as I buried my head in his chest.”
The liar and offender also embraced her husband, assuring him he was the “love of my life” as tears continued to “flow” down his face.
Shah’s lawyer concluded after his conviction last year:
“His path will be filled with challenges.
“But with the unwavering love and support of her family and friends, Jen is ready to face these challenges head on and emerge from this experience a better person who positively impacts others.”
