Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor announced that three Ohioans have been sentenced for insurance-related crimes as the result of investigations by the Ohio Department of Insurance.
The department reported that:
- Pickerington resident Steven Franklin was sentenced to five years of community control supervision after pleading guilty to insurance fraud. He was ordered by a Franklin County Court of Common Pleas judge to pay restitution of more than $25,000. The department found that Franklin submitted false receipts to his insurance company to support a property loss claim.
- Erika Davis, of Fremont, purchased insurance after an accident then misrepresented information for coverage to apply in a claim totaling more than $4,500. Davis was sentenced in Common Pleas Court to three years of community control supervision for theft and ordered to complete 100 hours of community service.
- Tangela Grissom, of West Chester Township, falsified information in support of a more than $3,000 property loss insurance claim. Grissom was sentenced in Common Pleas Court to two years of community control supervision for attempted insurance fraud.
