“Basketball Wives” Star Brittish Williams To Be Hit With Additional Charges In Insurance Fraud Case

In 2021, Basketball Ball Wives star Brittish Williams was indicted on federal charges. Williams has been accused of misuse of a social security number, bank fraud, wire fraud, making false statements to the IRS, and aggravated identity theft. The VH1 reality star has pleaded not guilty.

Weeks before for trial, prosecutors have announced that they plan to file additional charges, Radar Online reported. Which charges they intend to bring forward remain a mystery, but court documents state that the court it intends to “present a superseding Indictment to a Grand Jury before the trial date” including them.

Beau B. Brindley, Williams’ attorney, believes that the new charges will be easily disputed. “The government continues to make allegations that far exceed any actual evidence in their possession,” he explained. “Whatever the new charges may be, we look forward to addressing them.”

Last year, the prosecutors demanded that Williams be held in state custody until her trial, stating that she had violated the court’s order by traveling across state lines. The judge denied their request, and even granted granted a motion brought by Williams’ defense team requesting that her ankle bracelet monitor be removed.

“The producers of [Basketball Wives] do not want the ankle monitor to be visible,” Brindley said. “This creates stark limitations on the outfits and costuming that Ms. Williams can utilize. Ms. Williams does not engage in work for which she gets to choose her own outfits and clothes.”

Brittish Williams’ trial is scheduled to begin next month, on April 17, 2023.
