“Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star Jen Shah should be behind bars for 10 years after pleading guilty in her wire fraud case — at least that’s what federal prosecutors want the judge to order.
According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, the feds are seeking a 10-year sentence against the “RHOBH” alum, insisting she’s the “most culpable person charged in this case.”
The docs go through a laundry list of reasons why prosecutors think she’s deserving of the lengthy lockup … saying the reality star used the money from her fraud to “live a life of luxury.”
They also say her post-arrest conduct shows she deserves a long time in prison — pointing out she went “on a public offensive against the charges and tried to profit off the charges by selling ‘Justice for Jen’ merchandise.”
As we reported, Jen finally took a deal in July, pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with telemarketing … and as part of her deal, prosecutors dropped one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.
The deal calls for a sentence of up to 14 years in prison, and she could end up being on the hook for around $9 mil in restitution to victims of the fraud. Jen herself has asked for a 3-year sentence.
