Brittish Williams is reportedly behind bars after failing to comply with the terms of her prison surrender. As The Shade Room previously reported, in October 2023, the mother of one was sentenced to four years in federal prison.
Since then, William has been working to appeal her sentence amid being granted a delayed prison surrender date.
Brittish Williams Fails To Surrender To Prison
According to RadarOnline, Williams failed to surrender to prison on January 3. In fact, the day prior, the former ‘Basketball Wives’ star filed a motion. The motion reportedly requests that her four-year federal prison sentence be reduced to 32 months.
Then, on January 4, Williams allegedly asked the court to once again delay her prison surrender. At the time, the mother of one alleged she was “unable to report” to the FPC Alderson prison in West Virginia “as ordered.”
Additionally, Williams is asserting that the court failed to properly calculate her sentence. Therefore, she reportedly believes the court should postpone her prison surrender until a decision is made on her motion to reduce her sentence.
Williams allegedly believes a reduced sentence could “eliminate the need” for her to be transported between the West Virginia prison and Missouri court.
However, despite Williams’ efforts, prosecutors opposed her request.
“Even if Williams did qualify for a potential reduction, the Government would oppose relief because she failed to report to the Bureau of Prisons as directed and she already received a more than generous disposition by way of the dismissal of counts carrying six years of consecutive mandatory minimums at the time of the original sentencing,” prosecutors reportedly stated, per RadarOnline.
The outlet reports that Williams was arrested on January 12.
Four days later, her attorney reportedly filed a motion to continue hearings regarding the previous bond Williams was granted in her case, per the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
According to RadarOnline, a judge has yet to rule on Williams’ motion for a reduced prison sentence.

A Brief Recap Of The Former Reality Star’s Case
As The Shade Room previously reported, Williams was sentenced to four years in prison after being charged with 15 federal crimes related to Social Security misuse to wire fraud.
In November 2023, she filed an appeal on her sentence, alleging the judge mistreated her due to her celebrity status.
“Brittish Williams was punished today, not for fraud, but for her celebrity,” Beau Brindley reportedly told PEOPLE. “The Court chose to treat her more harshly due to her status as a public figure rather than treating similarly situated defendants equally.”
In December that year, Williams requested that her initial surrender date of December 11 be pushed back. At the time, she asked for the delay to spend Christmas with her daughter and determine the child’s new living arrangements, per The Shade Room.
Later that month, a judge would comply with Williams’ request, setting her new prison surrender date for January 3.
