Rapper Sameerah "Créme" Marrell Sentenced To Four Years In Prison For Tax Fraud

After eluding arrest last year, Detroit police finally caught up with rapper “Sameerah Creme Marrell” and sentenced her to four years in prison for tax evasion. Sameerah is accused of stealing $8.5 million in taxes and defrauding the government of nearly $27 million.

In addition to committing crimes, the rapper eluded detection and was on the run for months before she was recently apprehended.

Officials are hoping that Creme’s punishment would serve as a deterrent for her and other people who behave similarly.

Creme will spend nearly five years in prison for mail and wire fraud as well as committing crimes while out on bail. In addition to serving a four-and-a-half-year sentence, Creme must also pay nearly $7 million in reparations.

Previously, it was reported that Detroit rapper Sameerah “Créme” Marrell of Deuces Wild was arrested for her role in a $27 million tax fraud scheme. The rapper stole $8.5 million from a tax fraud scheme from 2014 to 2022. 

Marrell pleaded guilty to numerous charges, including mail fraud, wire fraud, and committing an offense while on bond. She was reportedly supposed to appear at a guilty plea hearing in October 2022 but didn’t show up. Eventually, the woman was apprehended in Memphis in December 2022. 

The IRS issued a press release on Marrell’s arrest, saying, “Ms. Marrell committed an astonishing amount of fraud against federal and state agencies. She also proved herself incorrigible, continuing her scams even after her initial arrest. We hope that today’s sentence will deter both Ms. Marrell and anyone else who seeks to steal public funds for private gain.”

As a result of her crimes, Marrell was sentenced to four and a half years in prison. Along with that, the rapper will have to pay the remaining restitution of $7,979,041.71.

Detroit rapper Sameerah Marrell was finally apprehended after dodging the feds for over a month over tax evasion charges.

The rapper, who was known as Creme and was one half of the duo Deuces Wild, was scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 25 to plead guilty to tax evasion charges stemming from a $5.5 million IRS case. However, she skipped out on the appearance and was on the run until she was finally discovered and taken into custody in Memphis.

In July 2021, Marrell and Noelle Brown were charged with aggravated identity theft, false claims, and conspiracy after the IRS alleged that the two women executed a tax scheme that resulted in them filing multiple false tax returns that totaled more than $13.6 million between 2013 – 2017. The women were reportedly paid $5,539,049 by the IRS before the government agency caught on the scheme.

Marrell and Brown are reportedly facing ten years in federal prison if convicted.

Creme saw this coming and never tried to do anything to undo it. For a young woman, this is silly and she deserves jail time.
