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
