Austin St. John – aka Jason Lawrence Geiger – aka The Red Power Ranger (according to the Federal Government, so hey, that’s a thing now) has been federally indicted on wire fraud by the US Government.
In a memo released today, St. John was indicted (and possibly arrested, but at least summoned to appear in front of a federal magistrate judge) for conspiracy to commit wire fraud. The United States government alleges that Austin St. John, along with others, conspired together to create fake information to apply for COVID-19 relief money – specifically the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) – and misuse the funds (ie: personal investments, leisure, etc.).
If convicted, Austin St. John could spend up to 20 years in federal prison.
