ABERDEEN MAN CHARGED WITH FELONY INSURANCE FRAUD
Maryland Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today
the filing of felony insurance fraud and conspiracy charges against
Stanley Reedy, 49, of the unit block of South Philadelphia Road
in Aberdeen. The indictment follows a joint investigation 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 Harford County, Reedy was charged with fraudulently obtaining
approximately $18,400 in insurance benefits from the Ohio Casualty
Insurance Company. According to charging documents Reedy told insurance
investigators that he and members of his family were involved in
an auto accident and sustained injuries and lost wages, which were
later reimbursed by Ohio Casualty Insurance. The alleged fraud
occurred between December 2003 and August 2004.
If convicted, Reedy 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.
