Yeezy Model, Shannade Clermont Indicted by Grand Jury on Identity/Card Fraud Charges

Shannade Clermont has been indicted by a grand jury on fraud charges and now her case is heading to trial.

Recall that Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 6 model was arrested last month on a slew of charges, which include stealing the debit card of a man who had overdosed and using his identity to ring up thousands of dollars in purchases. The Clermont sister reportedly, in 2017, stole the debit card information “of a man she had visited for a prostitution date and who was found dead in his apartment the next morning from a drug overdose.”

The unnamed man died due to an overdose of cocaine and fentanyl.  Investigators collected his iPhone, and his text messages were recovered directly linking him to Shannade Clermont.

Shannade was later released on bail.

Now The Blast reports that although she was already charged, she still had to be indicted by a grand jury to move forward with the trial. And so Clermont was indicted on all three felony counts she was charged with earlier this year.

Complex adds that if convicted, “the model faces up to 20 years for wire fraud, a 15-year maximum sentence for access device fraud, and 2-7 years for aggravated identity theft. Depending on the judge, she could spend 42 years in prison if the sentences don’t run concurrently. She’ll also have to forfeit anything she allegedly bought with the stolen debit card and pay back any additional money that was stolen.”
