*Jaden Smith’s girlfriend is apparently trying to mock her current legal situation.
Soon after 19-year-old Sarah Snyder was identified as the actor’s girlfriend, her rap sheet hit the web, revealing her arrest in June and charge of grand larceny in the third degree. She allegedly stole a $15,999 Hermès purse in Katonah, NY, back in February.
Snyder was back in the headlines Thursday after posting an Instagram pic of her sporting a T-shirt with her own mugshot, leading followers to believe she wore the top during her court appearance on Wednesday.
But her attorney, Robert Schuster, tells Page Six it’s not true.
“Contrary to some reports, Ms. [Sarah] Snyder did not wear a T-shirt with her mugshot on it to court,” he detailed in a statement. “That was apparently donned and subsequently published later that evening. I believe Ms. Snyder’s artistic expression represents her own existentialist beliefs relative to the situation she finds herself in and is not inappropriate given her position on these unfounded charges. I do not advise my clients to forgo availing themselves of their First Amendment privileges, particularly if they are consistent with a firm defense position.”
Schuster also addressed Wednesday’s court appearance by saying, “Despite months of speculation to the contrary, my client, Ms. Sarah Snyder is erroneously charged in this matter. It is asserted that Ms. Snyder was not in the State of New York at the time this incident allegedly occurred. Ms. Snyder is incredulous that she was charged and my office will fight to the very end to protect her innocence. This is not the first time The Law Offices of Robert Schuster has represented a client affiliated with a celebrity whose charges were ultimately dismissed. We are confident that the truth will come to light and that Ms. Snyder will be exonerated.”
