Rapper Sinzu Sentenced to 2 Years in US Prison
Rapper Sauce Kid (AKA Sinzu) reportedly has sentenced to two years in prison, and this comes more than a month after news that he was languishing in an American jail surfaced.
Recall that when the news of his arrest surfaced last May, the rapper dismissed it and said he was working to drop new songs. However, Idaho Statesman reports that the rapper, whose real name is Falemi Babalola was sentenced last week to two years in federal prison after stealing $15,388 during a visit last summer to the Treasure Valley.
The report adds that the rapper “obtained stolen bank card numbers and identifying information for their owners. He then encoded the account numbers onto blank plastic cards. After using an automated system to change account PINs, he was able to withdraw cash from bank ATMS and buy merchandise from stores between July 23 and 26.”
Like his counterpart Dammy Krane, Sinzu was arrested at an airport as he was set to board a flight. He was caught with a card encoding device and more than $6,000 in cash.
Following his arrest, the rapper was “charged with conspiracy to commit bank fraud, eight counts each of bank fraud and aggravated identity theft, and possession of 15 or more fraudulent bank cards.”
In court, he pleaded guilty to the counts of aggravated identity theft, and since he accepted his wrongdoing, prosecutor dismissed other charges lined up for him.
