BRIAN, TX (KBTX) — Jennifer Shah, star of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, was sentenced Friday by a federal judge in a Manhattan courthouse to 6.5 years in prison by a federal judge after she pleaded guilty to multi-year telemarketing scheme.
In July, the reality TV star pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud.
According to People magazine, her lawyers demanded that Shah serve her sentence at a federal prison camp in Bryan, the same facility where disgraced Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes will serve her 11-year sentence in April.
It’s not clear why Shah asked to serve in this particular prison, but people say other notable prisoners who were sent to Bryan’s camp included Hidalgo County, Texas, Commissioner Sylvia Handy; Jenna Ryan, who participated in the attack on the Capitol on January 6; and Leah Fastow, former assistant treasurer at Enron.
Bryan Jail is a women’s minimum security facility.
