Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today the filing of felony theft charges against John E. McKenney, Jr., 54, of Prince Frederick, Maryland. The filing of charges follows a joint investigation conducted by the Insurance Fraud Division of the Maryland Insurance Administration and the Office of the Attorney General.

In a one count criminal information filed in the Circuit Court for Calvert County, McKenney was charged with stealing approximately $6,000.00 in death benefit proceeds in July of 2003 from a client who was the beneficiary of her late husband’s life insurance policy.

If convicted, Mckenney could face up to fifteen years in prison. No trial date has been set. A criminal information is merely an accusation of wrongdoing, and every individual is presumed innocent until the charges are proven by the State.
