Jen Shah is pleading guilty. Jen who allegedly suffers from, Gerontophobia, (the fear and aversion for elderly people and old age) a hater of the geriatric and thief of the elderly folks money is finally telling the truth.

The Real Housewives Of Salt Lake City appeared in court on Monday. She switched her original plea of not guilty to guilty, finally taking responsibility for the fraud and money laundering charges.

Per a Twitter thread from Inner City Press’ Matthew Russell Lee, the 48-year-old reality star told Judge Sidney H. Stein she had committed “Wire fraud, offering services with little to no value. We used interstate telephones and emails. I knew many of the purchasers were over the age of 55. I am so sorry.”

Judge Stein then asked the reasoning for these things being purchased, Shah explained she had offered “misrepresentations, regarding the value of the product or service, of which it had little to none.”

Judge Stein then asked,“Did you know it was wrong and illegal?” Jen responded, “Yes, your Honor.”

Now that Jen has pled guilty she will not stand trial. She was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with telemarketing. She faces a maximum penalty of up to 30 years in prison.

Jen was arrested in March 2021 alongside her assistant, Stuart Smith, for allegedly targeting individuals in a nationwide scheme. At the time, both Jen and Stuart, 43, were charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with telemarketing and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
