“James Chapter 1:2-4 Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it all great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.”

Original Post: Do you think Kirk Franklin will be bonding his son out of jail anytime soon?

According to RadarOnline, 34- year-old Kerrion Franklin was transferred from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department on May 25 with a bail of $100,000. Reportedly the reality star had another court appearance scheduled for Tuesday (May 31) and he will remain in jail until someone pays his bond.

As previously reported, “Bad Boys: Los Angeles” star Kerrion Franklin was arrested on April 10 for allegedly driving a vehicle in Beverly Hills that belonged to a missing woman who is presumed to be dead. Police found a gun in the car, however, Kerrion Franklin insists that the murder had nothing to do with him and that the firearm didn’t belong to him. 

During a jail interview, Kirk Franklin’s estranged son stated he was wrongfully taken into police custody after cops pulled him over for a broken tail light and then arrested him on warrants he wasn’t aware of:

“I know that my circle is-my inner circle is changing. It’s been a lot of interesting things going on. I’ve been communicating with my pastor for the past couple of weeks about just different things thats been happening around me. Feeling like I’m being set-up, feeling like people is tryna catch me doing  wrong.”

He added,

“Put me in a position where I can be judged and, you know what I’m saying? Arrested like, this is unfortunate to see how, you know, Black men in America aiming to live righteous, to live in they truth, and to stay righteous are continuously treated.”

Kerrion’s warrants stemmed from a criminal case that took place in August 2007 where he was cited for three misdemeanors listed as; possession of alcohol under 21, falsely representing self to an officer, and possession of purported government issued California driver’s license. The warrant was reportedly issued because the reality star never showed for his court date.
