PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY MAN CHARGED WITH COLLECTING DISABILITY WHILE GAINFULLY EMPLOYED


Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today the filing of felony insurance fraud and felony theft charges against Jimmy Ray Osborn, 56, of Accokeek, 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 two count criminal information filed in the Circuit Court for Prince George's County, it is alleged that Osborn, from March 26, 2001 through June 17, 2003, collected over $34,000 in disability benefits while gainfully employed.

If convicted, Osborn could face up to fifteen years in prison on each count. 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.
