Sean Kingston says he is far from being broke but his legal troubles
just keep piling up, in fact a warrant is now out for his arrest.
The reggae pop singer is asking a judge for a retrial after a warrant
was issued for his arrest in his jewelry case. In stead of going to jail,
Sean Kingston wants a retrial, TMZ reported. Back in December,
Kingston was ordered by a judge to pay a Florida jeweler $44,000 for
which he agreed to pay for some expensive jewelries her took.
Sean Kingston wasn’t forthcoming with the payment, so a judge
issued a warrant for his arrest. The “Beautiful Girl” singer filed some
new legal documents telling the court that he wasn’t aware of the
order and that he thought that the papers that he got was for another
jewelry case, so he pretty much ignored it. He also said that he regret
his action and is now ready to take responsibility. He is asking the
judge to cut him some slack because he is experiencing some
financial difficulties and he is representing himself because he can’t
afford an attorney.
Kingston also said in his legal docs that he recently has some health
problems and was assaulted and robbed. The reggae pop star said he
has since returned some of the jewelries he took from Haimov
Jewelers and tried to work out a payment plan but they refused. This
development is particularly interesting given the fact that Sean
Kingston just bought a house and some expensive cars in Jamaica .
He is also proclaiming to be far from broke.
