Disgraced reality TV star Jen Shah will be required to enter a mental health treatment program after she completes her prison stint.
Earlier this month, the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star was jailed for her role in a telemarketing fraud scheme, in which she scammed thousands of people, mainly the elderly, out of their hard-earned money.
The 49-year-old was sentenced to six-and-a-half-years jail but, according to documents obtained by TMZShah’s punishment will continue past her prison release date.

As per the documents, Shah will be under supervised released release for five years once she’s set free in 2028, upon which she will participate in a mental health program approved by her probation officer.
The reality star is also required to make installment payments toward her restitution in the amount of 15 percent of her gross income until all $US6.64 million ($9.5 million) is paid off.

In the documents, it was also stated that Shah must continue to take her prescribed medication upon her release unless a doctor says otherwise.
“You must participate in an outpatient mental health treatment program approved by the United States Probation Office,” one stipulation on the document reads.
“You must continue to take any prescribed medications unless otherwise instructed by the health care provider. You must contribute to the cost of services rendered based on your ability to pay and the availability of third-party payments.”

“The Court authorises the release of available psychological and psychiatric evaluations and reports, including the pre-sentence investigation report, to the health care provider.”
The Utah native was sentenced on January 6 and will report to prison by February 17. Given she is entering US federal prison, she must serve at least 85 per cent of her sentence – that is, at least five-and-a-half-years.
“First and foremost I am deeply sorry for what I have done. I take full responsibility for my actions and I’m doing all I can to fix the harm I have caused,” Shah said in a statement to her victims after being jailed.
“I’m so sorry for the agony and significant financial loss each of you have endured.”
