By Staff

ATLANTA, Updated Feb. 14, 2013, 4 p.m. - Syndicated radio star Warren Ballentine is scheduled to appear in court next week and will likely enter a "not guilty" plea to multiple charges of fraud.

A source had told Redding News Review that Ballentine entered the plea on Tuesday but a court official has confirmed that he will not appear until Feb. 20 at 9:30 a.m.

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

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

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.

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.
