Eric R. Dinallo Superintendent of Insurance 25 Beaver Street New York, N.Y. 10004
|ISSUED 3/05/2009||FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE|
David L. McGee, 43, of Seymour Ave., Utica, was arrested for insurance fraud and other charges Feb. 17 after he fraudulently accepted $2,620 in lost wage benefits following an auto accident, the New York State Insurance Department reported.
McGee was arrested by Utica police following an investigation by Thomas F. Hurley Jr. of the Insurance Department’s Frauds Bureau. McGee is also charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument and falsifying business records. He is accused of falsely claiming he was employed so he could obtain no-fault lost wage insurance benefits. He is also accused of changing the date on the doctor’s prescription that allowed him to be out of work so he could continue to receive the benefits for an additional month.
If convicted, he could be sentenced to up to seven years in prison. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant Oneida County District Attorney Christopher Haineline.
