The infamous Clermont twins are going to be riding solo for a while, because Shannade Clermont was just sentenced to hard time.
Clermont, who starred on “The Bad Girls Club” and modeled for Kanye West‘s Yeezy clothing line, had previously pled guilty to one count of fraud and was facing 20-years for attempted to make $20,000 in charges using debit card information she swiped from a man who died after hiring her as a prostitute.
Along with the 1-year in prison, Clermont was sentenced to three years of supervised release and ordered to forfeit $5,775.27 and pay $4,696.40 in restitution.
She had been desperately trying to avoid prison time, and even enlisted her friends and family to send letters of support. However, the judge still decided prison was necessary.
U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman says, “Shannade Clermont lived up to her on-screen persona, as she admitted to stealing the debit card information from a man she visited for a prostitution date in his Manhattan apartment. When the man died of an overdose, instead of notifying the authorities or calling for help, Clermont callously chose to use the man’s debit card information to make tens of thousands of dollars in illegal purchases.”
He added, “As Shannade Clermont has now learned, her real-life bad behavior has real-life consequences, and has now landed her in federal prison.”
