Sean Kingston Facing 10 Charges in Florida Fraud and Theft Case

The popular artist Sean Kingston was taken into custody in California on May 23 following a raid on his rented home in Florida by the authorities.

Sean Kingston is presently being prosecuted on ten counts of theft and fraud. This comes after a spectacular raid on a rental mansion in South Florida. During this procedure, his mother was also brought into custody.


The singer is charged with a number of offenses, including one count of an organized scheme to defraud, four counts of criminal use of personal identification information, two counts of grand theft over $100,000, one count of grand theft over $20,000, and one count of fraud, according to documents obtained by PEOPLE and released by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office. He is also charged with failing to adhere to his probation.


According to the charges against him, 34-year-old Kingston and his 61-year-old mother Janice Turner defrauded companies for hundreds of thousands of dollars, including a jeweler and an automobile dealer. Among other accusations, Kingston is said to have stolen over $500,000 worth of jewels, $160,000 from an Escalade dealer, and $86,000 from a custom bed maker.

Prior to this, two years earlier, Kingston was placed on probation for trafficking in stolen items. Grand theft and systematic fraud are among the similar allegations that his mother Turner faces.


The complaint claimed that despite several attempts to collect money in January, he had not paid them as agreed, thereby constituting a breach of contract. According to Ver Ver Entertainment, Kingston was found guilty in 2015 of receiving $356,000 worth of watches without having to pay for them. When it was claimed that he obtained $301,500 in jewelry and expensive watches valued at over $1 million without making any payments, more judgments were issued in 2016 and 2022.

“I brought legal action against Sean Kingston,” lawyer Dennis Card said to PEOPLE. “After reading my lawsuit and getting in touch with me, a Broward County detective went down and provided my client with an affidavit and a recorded statement.”

They had been “waiting on this raid for more than two months now,” he continued.
