Office Manager Sentenced for Felony Theft

BALTIMORE, MD ( February 18, 2010) - Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that Randii Leigh Adams, 43, of Fort Washington, pled guilty and has been sentenced on a single count of felony theft. Prince George’s County Circuit Court Judge Graydon S. McKee imposed a five year suspended sentence, ordered five years probation, $1,800 restitution and a $1,105 fine.

From February, 2005 through June, 2006, Adams worked as an office manager for a dental practice in Upper Marlboro. While employed at the dental practice, Adams filed false insurance claims using names of her family members. The insurance company, Ameritas Life Insurance Corporation, wrote checks reimbursing the dental office for the false claims. After the checks were sent to the dental office, Adams endorsed them to her cousin who then cashed the checks and split the money with Adams. The dentist notified the insurance company and police that she thought her office manager was filing false claims. An investigation revealed that Adams stole $5,810.40 from Ameritas.

The conviction follows a joint investigation by the Insurance Fraud Division of the Maryland Insurance Administration, the Maryland State Police and the Office of the Attorney General. In making today’s announcement, Attorney General Gansler thanked Assistant Attorney General Roberta Siskind for her work on the case.
