FORMER INSURANCE AGENT CHARGED WITH FELONY THEFT

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.
