Sean Kingston’s Florida Fraud Case: Sheriff Wants Him to Pay for Extradition!

Sean Kingston, the popular singer known for his 2007 hit “Beautiful Girls,” finds himself in the midst of serious legal troubles as he faces a $1 million fraud case in Florida. The Broward County Sheriff’s Office is now seeking reimbursement for the costs incurred during his extradition from California to Florida.

According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office is requesting that Kingston pay back $5,268.53 to the taxpayers. This amount covers commercial airline tickets, hotel stays, car rentals, and travel allowances for the U.S. Marshalls and Broward County sheriff’s deputies who were responsible for transporting him back to Florida.

Kingston’s attorney, Robert Rosenblatt, stated that the singer arrived in Florida on Sunday night via a flight. Currently, Rosenblatt and his legal team are prioritizing securing Kingston’s release on bond, which means the restitution matter is not their immediate focus. However, the reimbursement request adds another layer of complexity to Kingston’s legal challenges.

The charges against Kingston are extensive. He is facing ten counts related to an organized scheme to defraud several companies. These accusations emerged after a raid conducted by sheriff’s deputies at his Florida home. The authorities allege that Kingston, along with his mother Janice Turner, defrauded multiple businesses, including an exotic car dealer and a jeweler, resulting in losses that reach well into the six-figure range.
