The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Jen Shah says legal drama has been heartbreaking for her family while maintaining her innocence.
It’s no secret that Jen was indicted for her alleged role in a long-running telemarketing scheme. Jen was arrested last spring and could spend years in prison if convicted. Her trial is scheduled to begin in March 2022.
The RHOSLC cameras caught her arrest while filming Season 2. It was featured on the most recent episode of the Bravo show.
Since the footage aired, some The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City viewers have expressed concern for Jen’s family, especially her boys Omar and Sharrieff Jr.
Jen Shah says legal drama has been heartbreaking for family
An Instagram story by @thebitchyhousewife showed support for Jen and her family as the drama surrounding her arrest plays out onscreen.
“I personally didn’t like seeing the FBI invade Jen Shah’s home and seeing her boys put in that position. It was heartbreaking,” was written on the Instagram Story.
Jen was tagged in the message, which also included the statement, “everyone is innocent until proven guilty, so we can’t go out and make a claim against an induvial without having those charges being filed.”
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City starlet decided to share the kind message adding her own words maintaining her innocence. Jen also revealed the toll the legal drama has taken on her family.
“Thank you. It was heartbreaking for my family. Everyone is using this as their storylines and jokes, and my family is the recipient of this heartless behavior. I am 100% innocent. I look forward to my day in court so everyone will see this. I hope this will serve as a lesson to everyone that judged & ridiculed me and my family without having facts, evidence, or proof,” Jen wrote.
