STATE EMPLOYEE CHARGED WITH INSURANCE FRAUD
General J. Joseph Curran, Jr., announced today the filing of criminal
insurance fraud charges against Johnathan Mosley, 37, of Baltimore.
In a four count criminal indictment filed in the Circuit Court for
Baltimore County, Mosley was charged with submitting false and misleading
statements and documentation to Farmers Insurance Exchange
in support of a personal injury insurance claim while he was employed
with the Department of Juvenile Justice as an Addiction Counselor.
charges allege that between the dates of November 27, 2000 and February
23, 2001, Johnathan Mosley submitted various fraudulent documents
in support of an insurance claim for lost wages incurred after he
was involved in an automobile accident in May of 2000. The false
submissions included a fraudulent letter and other documents, purportedly
from the Department of Juvenile Justice, misclassifying his position
and misrepresenting his salary. Mosley also submitted fraudulent
W-2 tax forms to support a lost wage claim concerning a private
business that he owned.
If convicted of felony insurance fraud, Miller could be sentenced
to serve 15 years in prison and fined $10,000. The indictment follows
a joint investigation conducted by the Insurance Fraud Division
of the Maryland Insurance Administration and the Office of the Attorney
General. A criminal indictment is merely an accusation of wrongdoing,
and every individual is presumed innocent until the charges are
proven by the State. No trial date has been set.
