“Bad Girl’s Club’s” Shannade Clermont Sentenced For Stealing From A Dead Man After Paid Date
A Manhattan Federal Court judge blasted “Bad Girl’s Club” starlet Shannade Clermont for her “lack of character” as she sentenced her to a year in prison.
Judge Naomi Buchwald said the social media star had a chance to show her integrity when her alleged victim passed out during what the feds called a “prostitution date” with her. But the judge said that instead of calling 911 or notifying someone, she stole his debit card info and went on a $20,000 shopping spree.
“When faced with a real test of character, she close to leave (the victim’s) apartment with his debit card information without calling 911,” Judge Buchwald told Clermont. “No foundation, established after her arrest, can account for that lack of character.”
The judge told the courtroom – which was packed with Clermont’s relatives on one side and her victim’s family on the other – that Clermont became “enamored with surface values” and questioned whether she didn’t call authorities about her victim’s unconscious state because she didn’t want to have contact with law enforcement while working as a prostitute.
Clermont pled guilty to one count of wire fraud late last year. After she serves her time, she’ll have to complete three years of probation.
Her family members cried after the judge handed down the sentence, and one relative was doubled over.
Clermont, who matched her sister in a blonde wig, blazer and cigarette pants, cried as she asked for mercy from the judge, saying she wasn’t in the right “mental space” when she stole from the man.
“I made a terrible, selfish decision,” Clermont said through tears. “I feel like I’m in a recurring nightmare that’s happening…I can’t pretend to be perfect because I wouldn’t be there. I want to take full responsibility.”
She continued: “Your honor, I ask for you to give me a second chance…this will never happen again.”
“I lost sight of who I was during that time in my life.”
