Does anyone remember Soul for Real? Here's a hint...

soul for real - candy rain

Well, the Duluth, Georgia Police have reported that group member Brian Dalyrimple will be indicted on 145 counts of aggravated identity fraud. A laundry list of related charges, like forgery and aggravated bank fraud (just to name a few!), will be part of the indictment.

Police say that Brian’s brothers (and fellow group members), Jason Dalyrimple and Andre Dalyrimple, will be indicted for their involvement in the case too. However, police did not say what specific role they played in the fraud.

Brian, 33, was arrested on suspicion of identity fraud earlier this month. He’d been running from Duluth PD with his infant son since February. Police finally caught him in North Carolina, where he was taken into custody.

Cops became alarmed when someone from California called Duluth PD saying they’d lost $12,000 due to fraudulent purchases. The victim told police that information had been used at a bank in Georgia to open a checking and credit account.

Police tracked the fraudulent purchases to two apartments in the same Georgia complex, both of which Brian was renting under false identities. A police search of one apartment turned up a crop of driver’s licenses from different states in different names.

“[We also found] a multitude of fraudulently obtained credit cards,” said Major Woodruff of Duluth PD, “documents for bank loans, checking and savings accounts in fraudulent names, account and routing numbers belonging to legitimate accounts and documents containing identifying information of many individuals.”

Duluth Police also said that Brian was using false identities to lease at least four other apartments.

Laborah Crawford (Brian’s baby mama) was arrested in connection with the same identity fraud case immediately following the search. She is currently being held in Gwinnett County Jail and hasn’t been cooperating with police for further investigation.

Brian’s 10-month old son was put in his grandmother’s care after Laborah was arrested. Police told that Brian later took his son from a daycare center one afternoon after the child had been dropped off. The baby has now been safely returned to his grandmother.

It’s estimated that the victims (260 people and eight banks) have lost as much as $1,000,000 because of the fraud.

Anyone who actually knows the members of Soul for Real already knows what’s wrong with this story. For those that don’t, I’d just like to shed a little light on this. I can’t sit back and be silent when I know more facts than what is being reported. I’m not going to comment on Bri’s side of it because I do not feel adequately informed to do so; however, the mention of Jase and Dre’s involvement is absurd. These two were just as shocked as the rest of the public when the news of Bri’s case first hit the airwaves… and now this? They are being indicted for what?? It’s baffling that this has become a public news story (and that is exactly what it is – a “story”) but yet the two members recently included don’t even know anything about it. If they are supposedly being indicted, shouldn’t they at least know something of this before the rest of America does? The article above states that police are not saying how they are involved, most likely because they can’t prove that they were… simply because they weren’t! It happens too often that people are considered guilty just by association, and this is clear case of that. Like I said earlier, I don’t know enough about Bri’s activities to make a statement about them, but if he was involved in what he is being accused of, his brothers definitely did not even know of it let alone have any involvement. I feel strongly against identity fraud and would not be wasting my time writing this if I felt that either Jase or Dre had even the slightest role in this scheme. I know for a fact that they did not, and so this should not go unheard. I know it’s my word against the news, and everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but remember that there are always three sides to a story. If you’re taking your time to read the above article, then you deserve to see this as well. Duluth PD, along with the media, is destroying the names of innocent individuals, but what else is new in the world? It has become “guilty until proven innocent”, right? To all the family, friends, fans, and everyone else who values truth in a corrupt system, please pray for the members of Soul for Real and that justice will see them through this tribulation. And please pass this along…

I know them all too well, and I can tell you that they are all fucked up. Brian has been scaming since 1997, Dre is a f---'n drunk, Chris is a crack head, and Jase is a real piece of shit. He definitely showed his true colors to his friends that were extremely loyal to him, especially me who is one of them, or should I say was one of them. I really don't want to get into it, but I put my ass on the line financially and emotionally for him and all I wanted from him was one stupid little shout out, and he could'nt even do that for me. The hell with all of them. I hope they all burn in hell. And that's the truth. So obviously the chick "Secrets" is sucking off one of these pieces of trash. Stop wasting your time dreaming that your man is ever going to be famous again. Maybe Dre should've kept his dick in his pants instead of screwing Andre Harrells wife. And that's the Truth!!!

I heard you on that man. Everything you said is true. I've been there with them too. Now they have the nerve to try and release 2 new albums. One being Jase's solo album "Emerged" which is garbage and the 2nd one being Soul For Real's new album called Journey. Are these dudes serious. They are all in their late 30's except Jase. They are sound like shit. I heard some of the songs on it, LOL, don't waste your money. They can't even get anyone to sponser or promote the shit. They are doing it on their own. Too funny.

Oh wow. I think it is pitiful to have so much animosity towards someone and to accuse them of things you don't know anything about....Sounds like a bunch of Haters on this site. I don't no anyone from So For Real but I hope you guys get it together and get back on track next time try to spend wisely and make investments in yourself (education) etc. You feel me. Anyway, I hope the truth prevails and the outcome is a product of that. If you don't have anything good to say don't say anything at all. We need to learn to lift each other up like it says in the Bible and not bring each other down then maybe we could get somewhere and not have so many problems you feel. ONE LOVE PEACE & BLESSINGS ... Just being me lol Ms_im2real4u aka Paula Jackson! Remember GOD has my back so watch what you say and read Ephesians!
