Former “Basketball Wives” star, Brittish Cierrah Williams, has been sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty to 15 felonies, including tax fraud, bank fraud, insurance fraud, and pandemic-related scams.
ShineMyCrown reported in a previous story on this matter that the charges stemmed from her underreporting her income on tax returns for 2017-2019 and falsely claiming dependents, which allowed her to evade paying $29,366 in taxes.
She further submitted fraudulent applications for Economic Injury Disaster Loans, falsely inflating her business income and payroll to receive $144,400 in loans intended to help struggling businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Williams also obtained $52,647 from four Paycheck Protection Program loans and falsely claimed COVID-19 relief under the California COVID-19 Rent Relief program.
Brittish Cierrah Williams was indicted in 2021 and faced additional scrutiny for failing to file annual tax returns and falsely claiming exemptions to avoid taxes on her $90,000 salary with her former radio station employer. She also submitted fake medical bills to an insurance company, resulting in fraudulent claims totaling $139,479.92.
