Sean Kingston Extradited to Florida to Face Fraud Allegations

The rapper, known for his hit songs like 'Beautiful Girls, has agreed to extradition from California to Florida, where he and his mother are facing charges of organizing a fraud scheme that resulted in over $1 million in losses to several businesses.

AceShowbiz - Sean Kingston, real name Kisean Anderson, has been extradited to Florida where he is facing fraud allegations. On Sunday, June 2, the 34-year-old rapper was transferred from the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department and is being extradited to Florida.

Kingston waived his right to challenge extradition during a hearing in San Bernardino Superior Court on Tuesday, May 28. According to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, Kingston signed papers agreeing to be transported to Broward County, Florida, where he and his 61-year-old mother, Janice Turner, are accused of orchestrating an elaborate scheme to defraud multiple businesses.

Kingston and Turner were arrested on May 23. Kingston was detained at Fort Irwin in California, while SWAT executed a raid on Turner's residence in Fort Lauderdale. The arrest warrants allege that they stole jewelry, a Cadillac Escalade, furniture and money, including $200,000 from Bank of America, $160,000 from the Escalade dealer, and $86,000 from a custom bed manufacturer.

Prior to his arrest, Kingston had been serving a two-year probation sentence for trafficking stolen property. Turner, who was detained on eight fraud and theft charges, has a history of legal issues, including a previous bank fraud conviction.

The investigation into the alleged fraud scheme is ongoing. Kingston and Turner are set to face charges of conducting an organized scheme to defraud, grand theft, and identity theft.

Representatives for Kingston have yet to provide a comment, but attorney Robert Rosenblatt previously stated that they plan to contest the allegations in court and are "confident of a successful resolution."
