The Palace PR office has been mighty busy for the last couple months, and we know they’re not going to be happy with Carrie Reichert’s new story! Carrie who, you ask? Carrie, 40, is the blonde “model” who told The Mirror that she had an intoxicated “fumble” with Prince Harry in Vegas at the end of August. She also told the paper she’s 26, so her credibility is definitely questionable. Still, she’s making headlines again saying that her time with Harry is why she was in prison in Mississippi for several weeks!
According to RadarOnline, “Carrie was mysteriously locked away for almost a month in Harrison County jail in Mississippi after being arrested for bouncing cheques – just hours after selling her story to a UK tabloid claiming she is 26 years old and that she enjoyed 20 minutes of alone time with the Royal rebel in his hotel suite.” Certainly not one to stay mum, Carrie quickly cashed-in and dished to the Daily Mail, “I believe the British Secret Service or whoever protects the Royals have something to do with my situation. I am not being treated the same as someone else in my situation.” Ooh, sinister.
We’re mighty skeptical of Carrie’s claim, but her new power lawyer Donald Rafferty isn’t! He said in a statement, “Carrie feels like she is being treated much different to other people. Professionally, since 1984, in my experience a charge of this nature is typically not prosecuted at the same level that she is being prosecuted at.”
Carrie’s “situation” is that she allegedly wrote four bad cheques worth a total of $21,672 from August 2003. The law in Mississippi states that all bounced checks over $100 are charged as felonies, but Rafferty believes his client should have been able to pay a bail fee to guarantee her court appearance, rather than being banged up. However, if convicted, she could face up to five years in prison!
Are her stories a desperate bid to keep out of the slammer or is she really being targeted because of her alleged Royal romp?
