More Punishment: Shannade Clermont Ordered To Forfeit Money, Pay Restitution And 3 Years Of Supervision
Yesterday, news broke that former reality star Shannade Clermont was sentenced to a year in prison over fraud charges. If you thought that was light, she actually had a few more penalties thrown her way. According to a statement from the U.S. attorney’s office, she also has restitution and 3 years of supervision to look forward to.
Shannade admitted to stealing from a man she visited for a “prostitution date”, who overdosed on drugs. Clermont used the victims stolen debit card information to make or attempt to make more than $20,000 in fraudulent purchases during the months following his death: including to pay her rent and phone bills, to purchase flights, and to make several online purchases of thousands of dollars of luxury clothing and other merchandise, including, among other items, Valentino shoes, a Phillip Plein jacket, Beats headphones, as well as a gift certificate at a beauty salon.
After pleading for forgiveness, Clermont was sentenced to a year in prison.
In addition to her year-long prison stint, Clemont was sentenced to three years of supervised release and ordered to forfeit $5,775.27 and pay $4,696.40 in restitution. That’s around half of what was stolen.
In an interview by law enforcement after she was arrested, Clermont admitted that she committed this crime at least in part due to the stress of keeping up her public image. Poor thang.
What do you think about her sentence?
