The actor who played the Red Power Ranger in the hit ‘90s TV series has been charged for his alleged role in a fraud scheme that raked in $3.5 million meant for businesses struggling during the Covid-19 pandemic, the Department of Justice announced.

Austin St. John, whose legal name is Jason Lawrence Geiger, 47, was indicted last week in Texas, charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

He was one of 18 people indicted in the scheme which allegedly defrauded lenders and the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to receive loans they used for personal expenses, according to the Eastern District of Texas U.S. Attorney’s office’s news release Wednesday.
