Federal officials in Massachusetts reported that a woman, who had multiple delays in her prison sentence due to reported hardship, was discovered to have an active social life abroad, including frequent beach visits. The evidence was obtained from her extensive social media posts, as stated in a news release by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, District of Massachusetts on April 11, per the Miami Herald

The woman pleaded guilty and received a six-month prison sentence for repeatedly delaying her prison term. She will serve the six months along with her previous sentence. She has also been slapped with three years of supervised release. 

Officials said,

“In May 2020, (the woman) was convicted of misusing a passport and was sentenced to 15 months in prison. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, (she) requested release on conditions and to self-report to serve her sentence.” 

“The court granted this request and released (her) on an appearance bond. Following several extensions of her self-report date, (she) failed to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons in June 2021 to serve her sentence,”

authorities continued. 

Reports added that police learned the woman spent time

“in the Dominican Republic where she posted various daily undertakings on Facebook, including trips to the beach, pool and social functions.”

The unnamed woman, who was supposed to go to federal prison, was 20 months late. As a result, the court took away

“her secured appearance bond”

and she was ordered to pay $47,500. Reports haven’t disclosed how she returned to the US.
