Atlanta Reality TV Star Faces 25 Years In Prison For Forgery
Domonique Scott, who starred in TLC’s short-lived reality series, “The Sisterhood” was arrested and indicted on allegations of forgery.
A Fulton County grand jury charged Domonique with first-degree
forgery and three counts of giving false statements in order to qualify
for money from a federal tutoring program.
Prosecutors said Tuesday that Scott
submitted bogus documents purporting false assets and liabilities
related to the ownership of a tutoring company that allegedly only
existed on paper in an attempt to qualify for the federal Supplemental
Education Services tutoring program.
Scott sent to the state Department of
Education a false balance sheet, a false statement of net income, a
program summary showing a false start date for her company and a forged
letter from a fictitious bank representing a non-existent cash line of
credit, prosecutors said.
Scott’s company was hired to tutor
students in DeKalb, Clayton, Bibb, Richmond and Muscogee counties as a
result of the fraudulent documents, prosecutors said.
The federal program eventually dropped Scott’s company, prosecutors said.
If Domonique Scott is convicted she faces 25 years in prison and up to $400,000 in fines.
“The Sisterhood” followed the wives of five metro Atlanta preachers, but was axed by TLC after one season.
Domonique and her husband lost their church, The Good Life Ministry,
after falling on hard times. She better call her prayer warriors because
she may end up with free room and board for the next 24 years.
