According to court documents, Basketball Wives LA star Brittish “Cierra” Williams has been indicted by a federal court for fraud.
On September 22, Brittish was charged with “five felony charges of misuse of a social security number, four charges of bank fraud, three charges of making false statements to the IRS, three charges of wire fraud, and three charges of aggravated identity theft.”
The charges total 18 counts. The former reality star was also taken into custody on Thursday. Brittish pleaded not guilty to the fraud charges in the United States District Court Eastern District of Missouri.
The fraud took place for two years. The court document detailed that the woman utilized bogus social security numbers to apply for lines of credit and secure loans in 2017. In 2018 and 2019, she deposited four checks ranging from $4,500 – $5,800 into accounts that she had access to and withdrew the funds before the checks bounced or before banks became aware the checks were bogus.
Brittish also lied about dependents on her taxes for 2017-2019– including using fake names and social security numbers.
Her attorney Jason Korner said the charges are unfounded, and she is being “targeted because of her celebrity, and I expect that to be clear once the evidence is produced.”
Last year, the former reality star was in the news after her former betrothed Lorenzo Gordon (he plays in the Israeli basketball league) accused her boyfriend of threatening him. Brittish also called Gordon a deadbeat father, saying, “You’re not having your damn child, you don’t care about her, you don’t send money, you don’t,” she said. “Nobody owes you anything. I don’t owe you money for something you bought me. Are you stupid? Whoever asks for some f**kin s**t in return?”
Despite her litany of charges, Brittish is still out here hustling. On her IG, she listed a course to learn how to work in logistics for the low price of $750.
