Louisiana Agent Booked with 29 Counts of Insurance Fraud

July 31, 2014

Louisiana State Police have booked a 58-year-old West Monroe man with 29 counts of insurance fraud and one count of theft.

Trooper Albert Paxton tells The News-Star that John Whittington, a licensed insurance agent, allegedly obtained insurance premiums in cash from customers in the Winnsboro area in 2013 and failed to turn in the money to an insurance office in Monroe.

An audit of Whittington’s customer accounts showed nearly $2,200 was paid by the customers but never remitted to the insurance company.

Whittington surrendered to investigators in front of the Ouachita Correctional Center.

It was unclear whether Whittington has an attorney.

    I imagine he didn't disclose his plans during the licensing exam.

    How did this guy get licensed? Are there no ethics requirements in La? Give him 20. He deserves to be put in with Tyrone and learn the new meaning of kid.
