    Sean Kingston’s Mom Janice Turner Out on Bail After Fraud Charges

    Sean Kingston‘s popular rapper-mom, Janice Turner, was surprisingly released from jail last Saturday after posting the $160,000 bond on Friday. Turner was brought into custody on a warrant for fraud and theft, and according to court records, she is held on eight counts, including conducting an organized scheme to defraud, grand theft, and identity theft.

    Turner was taken to jail after a raid at Sean Kingston‘s South Florida home. The mother of five, Janice, spent four days in jail and was reprimanded. However, her son, the “Beautiful Girls” performer, is still in jail, detained on a material-witness warrant for fraud. He will be arraigned in a Los Angeles courtroom this coming Tuesday, May 28, and will likely be extradited to Florida.

    This operation was carried out by a SWAT team of the Broward County Sheriff’s Office. The singer was at Fort Irwin, an Army training base in the Mojave Desert, at the time of his arrest. Well-known defense attorney Robert Rosenblatt is representing both Kingston and Turner. Rosenblatt was before the judge on Friday morning. He shared that he is confident that his clients will resolve this successfully and that Kingston would return on his honor if permitted, thereby saving the state the cost of the extradition and traveling the detectives.

    Sean Kingston and his mother have had run-ins with the law over the years. Most recently, the two were arrested for fraud and theft, allegedly conducting more than a million dollars in fraud and robbing the said monies, including jewels, a Cadillac Escalade, and furniture. Before the arrest, Sean Kingston was sued for not paying for an entertainment system worth $150,000. They also said he took more than $1 million in watches.

    On the other hand, the warrants do not provide the exact details of Turner and Kingston’s crimes. However, they do state that they are accused of stealing almost $500,000 in jewelry, more than $200,000 from Bank of America, $160,000 from an Escalade dealer, over $100,000 from the First Republic Bank, $86,000 from a maker of customized beds, and other smaller amounts from October to March.

    In another separate incident, Sean Kingston was facing a $5 million lawsuit at one point after being accused of rape. The rape incident is said to have happened in 2010 in Kingston’s hotel room after he performed at a Justin Bieber concert. Kingston, however, has denied the allegations, saying that the “legal matter is being handled accordingly.

    In a post that he later deleted on Instagram, Sean Kingston said, “People love negative energy!!. I am good, and so is my mother! My lawyers are handling everything as we speak.” Robert Rosenblatt told the South Florida Sun Sentinel the same thing on behalf of the rapper and his mother: “These are fine people, and I’d be surprised if the allegations were true.”

    The crimes levied against Kingston and his mother are schemes to defraud, grand theft, and identity theft, among other accusations. These are, of course, serious, and if proven true, the penalty is serious. As the developments regarding the case continue to unfold, it reminds many people of the challenges that can come with fame and success. It also gives people the simple yet all-important reminder to always keep their integrity and honesty, whether at a personal or professional level.
