Randallstown Woman Convicted of Felony Theft and Fraud

BALTIMORE, MD (January 17, 2008) - Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that Raquel Greene-Richmond, 34, of Eustice Road in Randallstown, pled guilty in the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County to several counts of felony theft and felony insurance fraud. Judge Michele D. Jaklitsch sentenced Greene-Richmond to eight years in jail, all but one suspended, and five years probation. In addition, the Judge ordered Green-Richmond to pay approximately $20,000 in restitution.

The investigation found that while Green-Richmond was employed as a temporary staffer at the State Department of Housing and Community Development in October and November 2007, she stole four checks, making herself the payee on two and her landlord the payee on the others. Judge Jaklitsch ordered Ms. Richmond to pay $6,300 restitution for the felony theft.
The discovery of that scheme led to the discovery of a second fraud involving inflated claims from an auto accident. Greene-Richmond submitted several documents to State Farm Insurance Company demanding $28,846 in lost wages and medical bills. In fact, virtually all the documents she submitted to substantiate her claim were forgeries. Judge Jaklitsch ordered Greene-Richmond to pay $13,710 restitution for the felony insurance fraud.

The conviction follows a joint investigation by the Insurance Fraud Division of the Maryland Insurance Administration and the Office of the Attorney General. In making today’s announcement, Attorney General Gansler thanked Assistant Attorney General Benjamin Harris and investigators Charlie Jones and Gary Beaver for their work on the case.
