Two more Georgia men plead guilty in Boise credit card fraud case

Rashine Kale, 38, and Jean Estinville, 26, both of Lawrenceville, pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count each of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft.

Kale admitted to making 21 purchases from seven different stores using credit cards with stolen account numbers. Boise police found 188 gift cards and pre-paid debit cards in a rental car Kale was using, along with three other cards found in his possession.

Estinville made 14 purchases in three stores using six bogus credit cards. Police seized 55 gift cards and pre-paid debit cards from his vehicle, along with a watch he bought with a counterfeit credit card.

The two men face up to 20 years each on the conspiracy charges and a mandatory two years on the identity theft counts. Kale is scheduled for sentencing on July 22, with Estinville to appear on Aug. 4.

The two men were among 10 Georgia residents arrested by Boise police on Oct. 6 and charged with similar crimes.

The others were: Brian Treadwell, 25, of Buford; Kyandre Banks, 34, of Lilburn; Terrance Barimah, 26, of Floranceville; Clarence Collins, 34, of Douglasville; Charles Moore, 25, of Stone Mountain; Jonathan Penn, 20, of Suwanee; and Mikki Williams, 24, and Rakeen Anderson, 31, both of Atlanta.

Banks, Collins, Estinville, Kale, Moore, Penn, Treadwell, and Williams were each charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, wire fraud, and aggravated identity theft. Anderson was charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and wire fraud. Barimah was charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and illegal possession of device-making equipment.

Anderson is scheduled to appear in court May 26 to plead guilty to unspecified charges.

Treadwell, Williams, Collins, Moore, Penn and Barimah pleaded guilty earlier and are scheduled for sentencing in June and July.

Banks remains a fugitive.

The case was investigated by the Boise Police Department and the United States Secret Service.
