TLC's 'The Sisterhood' former star charged with fraud and false statements

Domonique Scott, one of five Atlanta preachers' wives featured in the TLC reality show "The Sisterhood" and a self-described entrepreneur and evangelist, has been charged with fraud and making false statements in a case involving her supposed tutoring of low-income students, according to The Belle Report, Dec. 9, 2013.

Known as Pastor D, she appeared earlier this year in "The Sisterhood" with husband-pastor Brian Scott, and was indicted Nov. 26 by a Fulton County grand jury for allegedly submitting false information for a tutoring company with the goal of getting federal funds for the program.

Prosecutors claim Scott "sent to the state Department of Education a false balance sheet, a false statement of net income, a program summary showing a false start date for her company and a forged letter from a fictitious bank representing a non-existent cash line of credit."

If Scott is convicted, the former reality show star faces a possible 25 years behind bars and paying a maximum fine of $400,000.

"The Sisterhood" debuted with much controversy on TLC in January 2013 and promised "a candid look into the larger-than-life preacher wives (aka First Ladies) who work to ensure that their families and churches run as smooth as Southern-churned butter." Scott's former life was riddled with horrific incidents that would make you cringe; she and her husband lost (gave up) their church, The Good Life Ministry, after falling on hard times.

The video setting in this article takes place at Dominique's home.

At the time of the reality show's debut, the Scotts were "looking for new opportunities to fulfill their calling." While many tuned into TLC to watch the program, "The Sisterhood" proved too controversial for some, dissuading the network from renewing it for a second season.

"There are so many factors that contributed to the cancellation of the show, but ultimately it was the cast members themselves that caused our core viewers, Christians, to be grieved by their conduct and turned-off and disinterested in the show," explained Brian Lewis, one pastor-husband whose wife, Tara Lewis, was featured on the show.

"The premiere episode one was so way off base for those professing to be Christians and the sensationalized sexual content so blatant, the arguments so tense and the doctrinal differences so outlandish that it made people feel so uncomfortable that the show immediately lost 300,000 viewers.

Do you think these allegations are true about Dominique?
