Katherine Le is charged along with five other people, including her own husband, with running this gambling scheme. According to court documents, they made and concealed hundreds of thousands of dollars.
But she's traded in her designer duds for a jail jumpsuit, facing a money laundering charge.
Simply put, the DA's Office says this was a gambling operation.
Police executed a search warrant on Le's home in a gated community earlier this week. The arrests came Tuesday, just days after court documents say her and her husband's divorce was finalized.
All six are being held here at Harris County Jail on $1 million bond each. Sources say lawyers will try to get that reduced Friday.
Katherine Le is a well-known jewelry designer whose collection was once sold at Neiman Marcus. She went before a judge Friday to face a money laundering charge though an illegal gambling operation.
