Domonique Scott, one of the ‘stars’ of TLC’s “The Sisterhood,” was charged with first-degree forgery and three counts of giving false statements after claiming to tutor low-income students.
Scott was indicted by a Fulton County grand jury last week. Prosecutors accuse Domonique Scott of submitting bogus documents purporting false assets and liabilities related to ownership of a tutoring company that only existed on paper. She allegedly submitted the documents in an attempt to qualify for the federal Supplemental Education Services tutoring program.
“The Sisterhood” debuted in January and followed the wives of five Atlanta pastors. Scott and her husband lost their church, The Good Life Ministry, due to financial difficulties. We blogged about the minstrel show before it debuted. It was a joke then and still is today.
According to the AJC, Domonique Scott sent the state Department of Education a false balance sheet, a false statement of net income, a program summary showing a false start dates for her company and a forged letter from a fictitious bank which represented a non-existent cash line of credit, prosecutors said.
If convicted, Domonique Scott faces up to 25 years in prison and about $400,000 in fines. I guess she’s about to join another “sisterhood.”
