Clearly, there’s something in Florida’s water. Recent news incidents include, but are not limited to, the Zimmerman verdict, the hoodrat groupie who left her kids in the car to attend a Lil Wayne concert, and the model who somewhat got Catfished into prostitution. Now, we can add one more sign of ignorance to the ledger.
A 27-year-old woman who once taunted police and bragged about her ill-gotten millions on a social media website won’t be a free woman until she’s 48 years old. Tampa, Florida’s Rashia Wilson was sentenced to 21 years in prison on Tuesday after being convicted of wire fraud, aggravated identity theft and a host of other charges.
Over the course of a two-year investigation that began when police noticed a drop in drug-dealing in the area (!!!), authorities claimed the mother of three stole as much as $20 million from the IRS. And where did all that money go? Reports say some of Rashia’s money went to purchasing a $90,000 Audi A8, $30,000 spent for her son’s first birthday party, handbags from Prada, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, custom-made jewelry, and electronics. You know, things you buy when you’re balling out of control.
And just like it states in the “Ball Till You Fall” handbook, Rashia also went on Facebook to flaunt her lavish lifestyle and even went as far as taunting officers.
‘I’m Rashia, the queen of IRS tax fraud. I’m a millionaire for the record, so if U think indicting me will B easy it won’t, I promise you! U need more than black and white to hold me down N that’s to da rat who went N told, as if 1st lady don’t have da TPD under her spell. I run Tampa right now.’
Yup, definitely did it all by the book!
Before being taken away to start her 21-year stretch, Rashia asked the judge if she could hug her children one last time. The judge denied it.
