MAN CHARGED WITH FILING FALSE WORKER’S COMPENSATION CLAIM

Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr., announced today the filing of criminal theft and insurance fraud charges against Jeffrey Stevens of Rehoboth, Delaware. In a two (2) count criminal indictment filed in the Circuit Court for Baltimore County, Stevens was charged with making a false worker's compensation claim with Rockwood Casualty and stealing funds from that insurer in the amount of $29,365.77.

The charges allege that from June 1997 through January 2002, Stevens falsely obtained worker's compensation benefits from Rockwood in the amount of $29,365.77.
If convicted of theft, Stevens could be sentenced to serve 15 years in prison and fined $1,000. He also faces 15 years imprisonment and a $10,000 fine if convicted on the insurance fraud count.

The indictment follows a joint investigation conducted by the Insurance Fraud Division of the Maryland Insurance Administration, the Maryland State Police 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.
