Idaho insurance agent Misty A. Adams was taken into custody this week after being sentenced for insurance fraud.
A licensed insurance producer from Idaho Falls, Adams, 45, reportedly backdated her son’s auto insurance policy after he was involved in a car accident.
With the backdated insurance policy, Adams then filed a claim with Allstate Insurance.
In addition to Adam’s insurance producer license being revoked in November of 2017 for violations of the Idaho Insurance Code, an administrative penalty of $46,000 was imposed.
Ms. Adams pleaded guilty to insurance fraud and was sentenced in Bonneville County. Adams was given a unified sentence of five years with two years fixed and three years indeterminate. The court then suspended the sentence in favor of five years of felony probation.
This week Adams was ordered to serve 28 days in jail, complete 100 hours of community service and undergo psychological testing. Adams was also ordered to pay a $500 fine, $1,865 in restitution to the Idaho Department of Insurance, $7,967 in restitution to Allstate Insurance and other court costs.
