Jen Shah is reportedly required to undergo mental health treatment upon her release from prison.
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star, who recently pleaded guilty to fraud, was just sentenced to 6.5 years and will serve time in a Texas facility. Jen was arrested in March 2021 after being accused of running a telemarketing scheme that allegedly targeted the elderly. Fans have accused the 49-year-old of showing off her ill-gotten gains on the show.
Jen purportedly refused to film the recent season reunion as she was unable to discuss her case. At the time, her sentencing was not established, and the star was perhaps worried an interview would affect the judge’s decision. Last weekend, however, Jen was set to have a one-on-one interview with Andy Cohen, and many are wondering if Jen revealed the full truth.
According to documents obtained by TMZ, Jen’s participation in a program for mental health treatment will be required after her prison release.
Once her time is served, Jen will be under supervised release for five years, and the mental health treatment will be a part of this.
During the sentencing, Jen apologized for her actions and said, “With the proper medication I can now see what happened.”
The documents say Jen must keep taking her prescribed medication after the release unless Jen’s healthcare provider makes other decisions.
Her probation officer will need to sign off on her chosen mental health program, and she may be forced to undergo testing to determine if she’s used drugs or alcohol.
According to certain reports, Jen may be released after 5.5 years. Her sentence will start on February 17.
