ATLANTA, Feb. 20, 2013, 5:30 p.m. - Syndicated radio star Warren Ballentine today plead "not guilty" to multiple charges of fraud, a court official said.

Ballentine, 41, entered his plea before the U.S. District Court of Northern Illinois at the Dirksen Federal Building in Chicago.

Ballentine is due back in court on June 4 and has a trial date set for Nov. 4, a court official said. He was released on his own recognizance.

A source had exclusively told Redding News Review that Ballentine would plead not guilty this week.

A federal grand jury charged him with two counts of bank fraud, two counts of making false statements to lenders, and one count each of mail fraud and wire fraud in a six-count indictment on Jan. 24, according to the Chicago Defender. The indictment also calls for forfeiture of about $9,775,000 proceeds.

He owns the Law Office of Warren Ballentine, LLC, in Illinois, according to the Chicago Defender.

His talk radio show has also since been dropped from syndication by Syndication One/Reach Media, an official with the network said. The show is being conducted by other hosts.
