Facing Prison Time in KY

“Gypsy Sisters” star Mellie Stanley could be sent behind bars for her role in what cops say was a massive coupon scam out of Kentucky — ’cause she’s pled guilty … and is looking at serious prison time.
According to a court clerk, Mellie pled guilty last week in Fayette County, KY to 2 felonies — theft by deception and criminal possession of a forged instrument.
The charges stem from a huge coupon scam authorities say Mellie and her hubby were involved in back in 2017 … in which she was accused of swindling thousands of dollars worth of gear from Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us.
The good news (for her, anyway) — Fayette County Assistant Commonwealth Attorney Prosecutor Andrea Williams tells TMZ … 3 other charges Mellie was facing in the bust were dropped per the terms of a plea deal.
That being said, she’s still facing up to 5 years in prison for the theft charge alone. On top of that, the Commonwealth says she’ll have to pay $23k in restitution.
You might recall … Mellie was also nabbed in Tennessee in a very similar bust, and that case is still pending. Her Kentucky sentencing hearing is set for June.
