It is believed that there is a curse that inflicts itself upon those couples bold enough to open themselves and their relationships up to the world of reality TV. However, it looks like there’s also some kind of prison trend that is becoming popular among reality stars as well. In 2013 alone it was confirmed that popular reality stars such as Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and Love & Hip Hop‘s Mendeecees Harris are both facing pretty serious criminal charges. Now it appears that former Sisterhood star Domonique Scott is joining them.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Scott has been charged with first-degree forgery and three counts of giving false statements. Apparently the former first lady is being accused of submitting falsified documents implicating false assets and liabilities relating to a tutoring company, which she claimed existed, in an attempt to receive funding from the federal Supplemental Education Services tutoring program. Prosecutors say she sent the State Department of Education a false balance sheet, a false statement of net income, a program summary showing a false start date for her company. She is also being accused of forging a letter from a fictitious bank stating that she has been granted a non-existent credit line. The Sisterhood star’s company was hired to tutor students in Dekalb, Clayton, Bibb, Richmond and Muscogee counties as a result of her falsified documents. When they learned of the alleged forgery, prosecutors say the federal program dropped her company.
If convicted, Scott faces up to 25 years in prison and a $400,000 fine. She responded to the report via her Twitter page, claiming that the incident happened awhile ago and folks are just bringing it back up to be funny; however, the AJC says that she was indicted on November 26th.
In case you’re having difficulty remembering which cast member Domonique is, she is the former first lady of The Good Life Church. She and her husband lost their church due to financial hardship. Hopefully this is all one big mix-up; however the evidence looks pretty damaging.
