Prince George's County Man Sentenced for Felony Insurance Fraud

BALTIMORE, MD ( April 30, 2010) -Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that Latif Khabeer, formerly known as Andre Ronald Wright, 46, of Upper Marlboro, pled guilty to one count of felony insurance fraud in the Circuit Court for Prince George’s County. Judge Maureen Lamassney sentenced Khabeer to eight years, suspending all but 236 days, and five years probation with drug treatment and counseling. Khabeer has already served the 236 days pending his trial.


During March of 2006, Khabeer and Mark Jeffries staged a pedestrian-automobile accident in Prince George’s County, where Khabeer was the alleged pedestrian. Khabeer then submitted a false insurance claim to Geico Insurance, which included a lost wage claim in excess of $1,600. Further investigation revealed that Khabeer was not employed at the place of business listed on the lost wage form. Geico refused to pay any money on the claim.


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 Bernard Taylor for handling the case.
