Report: Mary Cosby Pleads Not Guilty To Two Charges Of Unlawfully Sheltering A Runaway!

Mary Cosby was charged with two misdemeanor charges for unlawfully providing shelter to a runaway and contributing to the delinquency of a minor

The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star has pled not guilty to the charges. According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Cosby was charged on April 8 and entered a not guilty plea on June 28.

Cosby will next appear in court for a pre-trial conference scheduled for Aug. 12.

In a statement, Mary's rep called the charges a "misunderstanding."

"Mary is saddened that she was dragged into another family's domestic situation but is confident that this misunderstanding will be cleared up soon," the rep told PEOPLE.

In the state of Utah, contributing to the delinquency of a minor could be punishable by up to six months behind bars, according to Radar Online

The Bravo reality star may also get slapped with a hefty $1,000 fine.

The alleged incident took place earlier this year in April, but details surrounding it remain private. It's unknown if the alleged claim will be part of her storyline in the upcoming new season of RHOSLC.

Cosby isn't the only RHOSLC star to find herself entangled in a legal battle. Mary's co-star Jen Shah was arrested in March alongside her assistant, Stuart Smith, for allegedly participating in a nationwide telemarketing scheme.

Jen attempted to have her case dismissed in June. The Bravo reality star claimed that she was suffering from "blurry vision" due to "dry" contact lenses when being informed of her Miranda rights after her arrest, causing her to be "unable to read" the waiver she needed to sign.

The following month, court documents obtained by PEOPLE claimed that Shah and her assistant were "responsible for orchestrating the broader scheme" and "supplying the leads that sustained" the telemarketing companies. 

However, Shah's attorney Priya Chaudhry told PEOPLE that "this is just their latest made-up allegation, and like all others, totally unsupported by evidence" and that her client "is totally innocent."
