Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Dana Wilkey is pleading with a federal court judge to grant her permission to visit her family despite restrictions to travel freely due to her pending criminal case.

As previously reported, Wilkey was indicted on wire fraud charges for entering a "fraudulent marketing contract."

According to official FBI reports, Wilkey and two associates were arrested on June 18, 2014 and consequently indicted with "conspiracy to commit wire fraud, wire fraud and aiding and abetting, and making false statements to government agents."

The reality star had served as president of a company named Adwil Agency, a vendor for Blue Shield. Wilkey, along with associate Skylar Phoenix, "entered into a fraudulent marketing contract" between Wilkey's company and Blue Shield. Wilkey reportedly provided regular kickbacks to the couple.


"Between in or about February 2006 through at least February 2012, Dana Wilkey, through Adwil Agency accounts, paid directly to Lissa Phoenix, Skylar Phoenix, and Rodeo Pink, approximately 87 checks totaling approximately $360,000 in illegal and undisclosed kickbacks related to Adwil Agency's business with Blue Shield," the release charged.

Wilkey faces up to 20 years in prison for each wire and conspiracy count.

On March 6th, Wilkey's legal team filed documents in the case requesting that the reality star be given permission to travel to Florida from California, explaining that she has upcoming business issues to handle in the state. Wilkey also expressed her hope to visit Orlando for a brief family holiday.

Wilkey states a reminder that the judge had previously given the reality star the green light to travel, during which no issues occurred – i.e. she didn't flee the country to escape from the criminal charges.

Wilkey also pled the court to grant her the right to travel freely in the future, based on her "good behavior" thus far.

The judge has yet to make a decision regarding Wilkey's plea.
