“Bad Girl’s Club” Star Shannade Clermont Facing Sentencing For Assuming Identity Of Dead Man From “Prostitution Date”
The federal government said reality and social media star Shannade Clermont deserves up to 18 months in the fed after her greed prompted her to steal from a dead man in a quest for Insta-fame.
In a letter to the judge, Assistant U.S. Attorney Sagar Ravi pushed for the Yeezy model to serve 12 to 18 months behind bars because of the seriousness of her fraud and identity theft, noting that the prison term will send a message to others not to do the same thing. Ravi also said the public needs to be protected from her.
“Plain and simple, this was a crime of opportunity – a crime the defendant committed out of greed to maintain the image she sought to portray on social media,” Ravi’s letter to the judge – which was obtained by BOSSIP – states.
Yesterday, we revealed that Clermont’s lawyer had begged the judge for mercy for his client, claiming that she stole only because of extreme financial hardship and even started a foundation to help people struggling with mental illness.
But Ravi called BS on Clermont’s assertions, saying that her purchases like $427 Valentino shoes, a $310 Phillip Plein jacket, $230 Beats headphones and $250 at a beauty salon don’t exactly scream poverty. The federal attorney also pointed out that Clermont started the foundation only after she pled guilty and was facing sentencing.
Last November, Clermont pled guilty to one count of wire fraud, admitting she’d stolen the debit card information of a man was paid to spend time with who later died, racking up more than $22,000 in fraudulent charges. She also admitted that she later stole her victim’s identity in order to try to wire $1,000 to herself.
Ravi also revealed details of the night of what he called her “prostitution date” with the unnamed victim. Using the name “Audrey,” Ravi said Clermont spent three hours with the man, who was found dead the next morning alongside a broken used condom, baggies of coke and a fentanyl pill. Clermont has maintained that her victim just passed out on the bed and she stole his card details and left.
Clermont is scheduled to be sentenced next week in Manhattan Federal Court.
