CALVERT MAN CHARGED WITH INSURANCE FRAUD

Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr., announced today the filing of criminal insurance fraud charges against Dennis Louis Heflin, 41, of Prince Frederick, Maryland. In a two-count criminal information filed in the Circuit Court for Wicomico County, Heflin was charged with filing false information in support of an insurance claim for long-term disability benefits.

The charges allege that on August 11, 1997 and on September 22, 1997, Denis Louis Heflin submitted false information to an insurance company about matters material to an insurance claim for long-term disability benefits that he had filed.

If convicted of insurance fraud, Heflin could be sentenced to serve 15 years in prison and pay a fine of $10,000.

The indictments follow a joint investigation conducted by the Insurance Fraud Division of the Maryland Insurance Administration and the Office of the Attorney General. A criminal information 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.
