‘Power Ranger’ star Austin St John arrested for COVID fraud | Famous

A federal lawsuit from Texas alleges that 18 people — including St. John, who lived his life as Jason Lawrence Geiger — attempted to cheat the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program. This program has been used to help financially needy businesses during the lockdown. The complaint alleges that the 18 defendants received a total of more than $3.5 million (€3.3 million) through sixteen separate small business loans.

John’s Instagram account posted a statement in response to the charges. It states that he is “a father, husband, role model and friend to many”. “We expect Austin’s legal team to successfully defend himself against these charges and lead to his eventual acquittal.”

St. John’s career as a Power Ranger began in the ’90s, but he’s still involved in the franchise today. In 2019, he again transformed into his character in the “Power Rangers” video game called “Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid”. He also appeared in the role of the character in the TV series ‘Power Rangers Beast Morphers’ in 2020.
