Former Basketball Wives reality star Brittish Williams, convicted of tax fraud, bank fraud, and insurance fraud, failed to surrender to Alderson Federal Prison Camp in West Virginia on her scheduled date of Jan. 3.
The motion emphasized that the court’s calculation of her prison term was flawed and that she deserved a shorter sentence.
Despite the court’s decision to delay her self-surrender by almost a month, Williams did not appear at Alderson Federal Prison Camp on January 3. Instead, she requested the court to postpone her report to prison until a ruling was made on her reduced sentence request.
In response to her plea for a reduced sentence, prosecutors argued against any relief, highlighting that Williams’ initial four-year prison term was already less than the potential six-year term associated with the charges she faced.
Following her failure to self-surrender, Williams was reportedly arrested on January 12. However, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, she was not in Alderson FPC’s custody at the time of this reporting.
This legal saga comes after a judge granted Williams’ request in December to change her self-surrender date, allowing her to spend the holidays with her daughter, Dash Dior Gordon, who is five years old and shares with former football player Lorzeno Gordon.
Williams, known for her appearances on Basketball Wives, received her sentencing in October 2023, facing four years in prison and a restitution order exceeding $564,000. The charges against her included tax fraud, bank fraud, and insurance fraud.
