She announced on her Instagram page that she would not be participating in the one-on-one competition due to clauses in her contract that allow the network to “legally make false statements about me and my history on any and all topics before and during my participation . .”

“I’d rather stay quiet and wait until I can accurately share my story than continue to have complete lies and misrepresentations spread about me in the headlines,” she said. “I want to speak and you will hear from me. Soon I will share my story and this painful part of my life.”

“I’m sorry. My actions hurt innocent people. I want to apologize by doing everything I can to get the funds to pay the restitution,” he said after hearing the sentence.

Even if his six-and-a-half-year sentence ends, Shah’s freedom may not be fully restored as there are other conditions he must successfully complete before he can be released.
Based on TMZ, he must enter a mental health program after his prison sentence. The news agency reports that he will have to undergo a mental health program at the time of his supervised release, which is five years after the sentencing.
You also need to keep taking your medications unless directed otherwise by a healthcare professional. The PO must also be aware of and approve the mental health program you are applying for.
Shah must undergo a drug test at least twice during the mental health program to make sure he hasn’t relapsed.
