Sean Kingston has has been release from jail after paying $100,000 bond.

Both Kingston and his mother, 61-year-old Janice Turner, were taken into police custody following a raid at their Florida home last month. They have been accused of fraud, grand theft, identity theft and other charges.

In a video shared by CBS Miami, Sean Kingston is seen walking out of the facility with a towel on his head and greeting his family and friends who were waiting for him outside. He refused to answer questions about whether he stole jewelry or defrauded anyone. Still, he made it clear that he owned the Maybach he got into after asking if it was rented.

Officials said Kingston and his mother stole $500,000 dollar in jewelry, for a Cadillac Escalade and other loans from banks. They also stole nearly $100,000 from the maker of customized beds and a $150,000 entertainment system.

During the raid of his Southwest Ranches rented home, Janice Turner, was arrested in connection to the fraud case. Back in 2006, she was charged in another fraud case where she served 1 year and 6 months in prison.

Kingston was brought back to South Florida after he was arrested in California following his performance at a concert.

His attorney plans to file a not-guilty plea and request a jury trial.
