Remember Renee from America's Next Top Model? She was the finalist in Cycle 8 who landed in third place (Jaslene Gonzalez won that season). Renee was also the girl who had many feuds in the house.

According to reports, a judge has sentenced the 28-year-old to 12 years in prison on criminal charges. Renee Diane Always pled guilty to four burglary counts, a misdemeanor count of identity theft and one count each of vehicle theft and being a felon in possession of a firearm. She was also ordered to pay her victims over $58,000.

In June 2013, Renee was arrested after a six-hour standoff with police in Palm Springs, California.

She was previously arrested for multiple offenses, including drug possession, burglary, committing a felony while on bail, theft and fraud. She also had prior arrests that year for grand theft of more than $400, grand theft with a firearm, and receiving stolen property, according to reports.

In 2013, her family claimed Renee's drug problem was spiraling out of control and her mom pleaded that she needed  professional help from Dr. Phil or even Oprah.

In court today: Renee Diane Alway, 28, was sentenced to 12 years in prison on Wednesday after pleading guilty to various criminal charges and sported more hair than she did during her court appearance last year
This is what Renee looks like nowadays
According to RadarOnline, Renee has been in custody ever since she was arrested in 2013 after someone called police to report a “suspicious female” in a Palm Springs neighborhood. Responding officers found Renee hiding in the garage of a home in the area.
