Sean Kingston and mother GAVE up extradition and will be arrested by authority over $1M fraud


American rapper and singer, Sean Kingston has given up on his right to fight extradition in a California court.

Now the 34-year-old will be turned over to authorities in Florida, where he and his mother are charged with more than a million dollars worth of fraud.


Kingston did not make a public court appearance but signed papers agreeing to skip extradition hearings, representatives from San Bernardino courts and the sheriff told The Associated Press.

He remained in a Southern California jail Tuesday afternoon, but sheriff’s officials will coordinate with the Broward County Sheriff’s Office to return him to Florida, sheriff’s spokeswoman Mara Rodriguez said in an email.


Kingston was arrested on Thursday at Fort Irwin, an Army training base in California’s Mojave Desert where he was performing.

His mother, 61-year-old Janice Turner, was arrested the same day, when a SWAT team raided Kingston’s rented mansion in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.


Kingston and Turner have been charged with conducting an organized scheme to defraud, grand theft, identity theft, and related crimes, according to arrest warrants released by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.

The warrants allege they stole money, jewelry, a Cadillac Escalade, and furniture.

The warrants in the case say that from October to March they stole almost $500,000 in jewelry, more than $200,000 from Bank of America, $160,000 from the Escalade dealer, more than $100,000 from First Republic Bank, $86,000 from the maker of customized beds. Specifics were not given.


Kingston, whose legal name is Kisean Anderson, was already on two years’ probation for trafficking stolen property.

His mother pleaded guilty in 2006 to bank fraud for stealing over $160,000 and served nearly 1.5 years in prison, according to federal court records.
