Damn. OG Red Power Ranger out here doing PPP scams

The Department of Justice has named 18 people in a federal indictment, charging them with violations of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in the Eastern District of Texas, and the group of 18 defendants includes Mighty Morphin Power Rangers star Austin St. John. St. John, whose real name is Jason Lawrence Geiger, is the show's original Red Ranger, and while we are still waiting for more details on the charges, the release from U.S. Attorney Brit Featherston says that the 18 defendants have either been arrested or summoned for appearance before a federal magistrate judge. If convicted, the 18 charged could be facing up to 20 years in prison.

According to the indictment, Geiger is alleged to have been a part of a scheme to defraud lenders and the Small Business Administration's Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Michael Hill is alleged to have recruited others to use an existing business or create a business to submit applications to obtain PPP funding, and on the applications, the defendants are alleged to have misrepresented material information. You can read the excerpt from the official release by the Department of Justice and the list of defendants below.

Michael Lewayne Hill, a/k/a Tank, 47, of Mineral Wells;

Andrew Charles Moran, 43, of Lewisville;

Peter Keovongphet, a/k/a Lil' Pete, 34, of Ft. Lauderdale, FL;

Ty Alan Burkhart, 34, of Frisco;

Jason Lawrence Geiger, a/k/a Austin St. John a/k/a the Red Power Ranger, 47, of McKinney;

Eric Reed Marascio, a/k/a Phoenix Marcon, 50, of Allen;

Christopher Lee McElfresh, 43, of Frisco;

Cord Dean Newman, 44, of Homosassa, FL;

Elmer Omar Ayala, 45, of Midlothian;

Gregory Fitzgerald Hatley, Jr., 38, of Allen;

Alexander Eric Cortesano, 52, of Dallas;

Arthur Atik Pongtaratik, 33, of Carrollton;

Miles Justin Urias, 34, of Richardson;

Fabian C. Hernandez, 44, of Lake Alfred, FL;

Daniel Lee Warren, 33, address unknown;

Rajaa Bensellam, 49, of Allen;

Hadi Mohammed Taffal, 50, of Allen; and

Jonathon James Spencer, a/k/a Spence, 33, of Rowlett.

The release from the Department of Justice reads "According to the indictment, the defendants, led by Michael Hill and Andrew Moran, are alleged to have executed a scheme to defraud lenders and the Small Business Administration's (SBA's) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Hill is alleged to have recruited co-conspirators to use an existing business or create a business to submit applications to obtain PPP funding. Once enlisted, Moran is alleged to have a*sisted his co-conspirators with the application paperwork, including fabricating supporting documentation and submitting the application through the online portals. On the applications, the defendants are alleged to have misrepresented material information such as the true nature of their business, the number of employees, and the amount of payroll.

Based on these material misrepresentations, the SBA and other financial institutions approved and issued loans to the defendants. Once in receipt of the fraudulently obtained funds, the defendants did not use the money as intended, such as to pay employee salaries, cover fixed debt or utility payments, or continue health care benefits for employees. Instead, the defendants typically paid Hill and Moran, transferred money to their personal accounts, and spent the funds on various personal purchases. In other instances, the defendants sent the fraudulently obtained funds to Jonathon Spencer for purported investment in foreign exchange markets. In total, the defendants are alleged to have fraudulently obtained at least 16 loans and at least $3.5 million.

If convicted, the defendants each face up to 20 years in federal prison."

Respect to Tommy he’s at every con cashing out. Those who get famous and can’t stay famous always crash out. I really don’t get not saving some money and going to med school, law school, or some other high paying profession.

Jason could have been on YouTube making Vlogs on his channel and telling old War stories from his days as a Power Ranger....


I pray that Zack is ok though. I saw him on Christy Carlson Romano's channel. Dude hasn't aged in years.


We already know that Tommy does Comic Con.



Billy should be ok. I didn't know how he was gay though. He was a good advisor to the team and had the guts to swallow his pride and give his Zeo Crystal to Tonya. I don't think they was ready for a man to be the Yellow Ranger back in 1996.

Tommy was the Green Ranger/White Ranger...

He saved the show once he became the leader.


Jason knew that the team was in good hands and didn't cry about it.




Tommy being a real nikka, repayed Jason by letting him use the Gold Ranger powers.





Off topic but I find it ironic that him and JDF don't get along in real life. Him and Tommy were tighter than Giraffe pu**y on the show.

I see you’re a real fan like myself, “we were playing power rangers” was our go to excuse to fu*k a n*gga up on the playground back then. I remember I had the head flip blue ranger toy and the belt with the pop out coin. Everyone was catching hands in the name of the Power Rangers those years!

But to your point most shows the characters that are the closest on camera hate each other in real life, fu*king jealousy most of the time!

Saved the show how?

He came in like 15 episodes into the first season and at that point it was already the biggest kids show on TV

It was never in danger of being cancelled so there was nothing to save
