STATE EMPLOYEE CONVICTED OF
FELONY INSURANCE FRAUD
Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr., announced today that Johnathan
Mosley, 38, of Baltimore, was convicted of four counts of felony
insurance fraud after a trial in Baltimore County Circuit Court.
Mosley was charged with submitting false and misleading statements
and documentation to Farmers' New Century Insurance Company in support
of a personal injury insurance claim while he was employed with
the Department of Juvenile Justice as an Addiction Counselor.
to the Statement of Facts, from November 27, 2000 to 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, mis-classifying his position,
misrepresenting his salary and falsely indicating that he had missed
three months of work immediately after his injury. Mosley also created
and submitted fraudulent W-2 tax forms to support a lost wage claim
concerning a private business that he owned.
The Honorable Vicki Ballou-Watts ordered a pre-sentence investigation
and scheduled sentencing for December 4, 2002. Mosley could be sentenced
to serve up to 15 years in prison and fined up to $10,000 on each
felony count. The convictions follow a joint investigation conducted
by the Insurance Fraud Division of the Maryland Insurance Administration
and the Office of the Attorney General.
