Jen Shah, star of 'Real Housewives,' vows to fight charges in court and not in the media

Jen Shah, "Real Housewives of Salt Lake City," star, vowed to defend herself in court and not in public.

Shah, 48, faces multiple charges of conspiracy to wire fraud and conspiracy money laundering. She could spend up to 50 years prison if she is convicted of all the charges.

Fox News Digital was informed Thursday by the attorney for the reality star: "Ms. Shah refutes these allegations. We look forward to responding in Court and not in the Press."

Federal prosecutors moved for evidence to be admitted to trial at a hearing Tuesday in New York. The motion was filed by the government to ask a judge for permission to admit evidence. This is to reveal the rich details of how Shah hid fraud money from victims. Many of these senior citizens are able to see the full picture.

According to legal filings, Shah was actually low on cash and allegedly continued the decades-long scheme to finance her lavish lifestyle.

In a March 2021 statement, the New York Police Department stated that Shah and Stuart Smith were allegedly deceiving hundreds of people. It also noted that the fraud had been going on for almost a decade starting in 2012.

In the meantime, prosecutors stated in a motion filed Tuesday that they expect the evidence to show that the defendant spent far more than she could afford without the income from the Telemarketing Fraud scheme.

The government claims it has solid evidence to back Shah's allegations that she wasn't running an actual business. This is in stark contrast to her real life.

James J. Leonard Jr. represented Teresa Giudice, "Real Housewives of New Jersey", and shared his advice with Fox News Digital this week.

Leonard said that "In all honesty there's nothing she could do to prepare herself for prison if that happens." I'm certain she hopes that this is something she can avoid, and that it won’t go that way. This is not the conversation she needs right now.

He said, "People outside might be viewing this as theater. It's entertainment. This is someone's daily life. This is not a reality television show. It doesn't necessarily mean she should be entertained by bad things happening to her on reality TV.

Shah's trial is set to begin March 22. Stuart Smith has pleaded guilty, and will be sentenced next month.
