HARFORD COUNTY WOMAN CONVICTED OF
FELONY INSURANCE FRAUD

Maryland Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today that Peggy Fowler-Sanders, 45, of Churchville, Maryland pleaded guilty in Harford County Circuit Court to felony insurance fraud. Ms. Fowler-Sanders had been charged with submitting false information to an insurance company and stealing approximately $16,800.00 in insurance proceeds. The Honorable William O. Carr sentenced Fowler-Sanders to five years’ incarceration, suspended that sentence and placed her on two years of supervised probation. Additionally, the Court ordered Fowler-Sanders to pay appropriate restitution.

In a statement of facts presented by the prosecutor, the Court learned that Fowler-Sanders, from December 2002 through February 2005, received, forged, and cashed her late father’s bimonthly disability checks. On several occasions during that period, she had indicated to the insurance company that her deceased father was still living with her.

The conviction follows a joint investigation conducted by the Office of the Attorney General, the Insurance Fraud Division of the Maryland Insurance Administration, and the Maryland State Police.
