Brittish Williams’ Christmas with Family Before Four-Year Prison Term

Estimated read time 2 min read

Former reality TV star Brittish Williams, known for her appearances on VH1’s Basketball Wives and Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, has been sentenced to four years in prison on various fraud charges. Despite this setback, Williams has been granted the opportunity to spend the upcoming Christmas season with her family before commencing her prison term on January 3rd.

Details of the Charges

Williams faced multiple charges including tax evasion, bank fraud, and using fake identities for financial gain. She was convicted for:

  • Five counts of misuse of a Social Security number
  • Four counts of bank fraud
  • Three counts each of making false statements to the IRS and wire fraud

Prison Location

The sentence will be served at the Alderson Federal Prison Camp in West Virginia, a facility over 600 miles from her family in St. Louis. Notable past inmates of Alderson include jazz singer Billie Holiday and lifestyle mogul Martha Stewart.

Legal Proceedings

Williams’ legal battle began with her indictment in September 2021. Despite the ongoing case, she continued her fraudulent activities, including claiming false pandemic-related benefits. Her attorney, Beau Brindley, argued for a lesser sentence, but U.S. District Judge Henry Autrey handed down a four-year term, emphasizing her “fraudster mentality”.

Delayed Sentence for Family Time

In a significant development, Williams’ sentence start was delayed from December 11 to January 3, allowing her to spend the holiday season with her daughter. This decision was made considering the impact of her incarceration on her young daughter, who will be under the care of Williams’ mother during her prison term.

Financial Restitution

In addition to the prison sentence, Williams is required to pay $564,000 in restitution for her crimes, which involved significant financial losses to various victims.


While facing a challenging four-year prison term, Brittish Williams will cherish this holiday season with her family. The case serves as a stark reminder of the consequences of engaging in fraudulent activities, regardless of one’s public status.
