Manager Sentenced for Felony Theft
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
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.
