Hajia4Reall’s Legal Team express satisfaction with court verdict after Her Sentence

Although her attorneys had initially requested a three-month sentence, the judge imposed a one-year and one-day term on the socialite in the case of U.S. v. Mona Montrage, 22 cr 617 (JPO).

Her defense team is relieved by the court’s decision, as it aligns with their argument for a reduced sentence compared to the government’s request for 37 to 46 months of incarceration.

“After a 1.5-hour sentencing, U.S. v. Mona Montrage, 22 cr 617 (JPO) comes to a close. Our client was sentenced to 12 months and 1 day, against the government’s request for 37 to 46 months of incarceration,” her legal team, Fast Law PLC, announced following the sentencing.

They added, “We are incredibly proud of the advocacy done on our client’s behalf and the result achieved. Our client will be issuing a statement when she is ready.”

It will be recalled that Montrage pleaded guilty in Manhattan Federal Court Feb. 21, 2024 to conspiracy to receive stolen money, federal authorities said “In total, Montrage controlled bank accounts that received over $2 million in fraudulent funds from the enterprise, the feds said.

Montrage and other scammers convinced their lovelorn marks to help move gold to the US from overseas; to help resolve purported FBI investigations; and send cash to help US Army officers in Afghanistan, according to court papers.

Her ill-gotten gains were deposited in Montrage’s Bronx bank accounts before she wired much of the money to her native Ghana, authorities said.

The ‘Fine Girl’s hitmaker allegedly charmed one pigeon into sending her $89,000 through 82 wire transfers by claiming her father’s farm in Ghana needed help, the court documents said.

She tricked that person into believing the pair were married by sending them a tribal marriage certificate after a series of phone conversations using her real identity, authorities alleged.

“Romance scams such as Montrage’s harmed her vulnerable, elderly victims not only in the cruel betrayal of trust in the realization that their online romantic connection was fiction, but by also callously stealing their money,” said Manhattan US attorney Damian Williams
