New Jersey Jury Convicts Man in Bogus Insurance Scheme

December 16, 2010

A federal jury in New Jersey has found a California man guilty of selling bogus liability insurance policies.

The jury returned its verdict against 62-year-old Ronald Allen of North Hollywood, Calif., following a seven-day trial in Camden.

Prosecutors say Allen conspired with Houston-based insurance agent Gilbert Morgan to sell commercial liability policies to bar and nightclub owners around the country, including in New Jersey.

The policies were issued by a fictitious company created by Allen and never paid any claims.

Prosecutors say the men collected nearly $700,000 in premiums.

Allen faces a maximum possible sentence of 20 years in prison. Morgan pleaded guilty in September 2008 and is awaiting sentencing.
