Riley Presher, of Twin Falls, Idaho, was sentenced on Monday for insurance fraud in violation of Idaho Code 41-293.
Presher on Dec. 15, 2017, purchased insurance and filed a claim for an accident he stated occurred that same day. When the investigations division with the Idaho Department of Insurance was asked to look into this claim and Presher was interviewed, he reportedly admitted to DOI Investigators he did not have insurance on the day the accident happened on Dec. 14, 2017 when he backed his truck into his friend’s vehicle.
On Aug. 31, 2018, Presher admitted to misrepresenting the collision date and time to Sentry Insurance in the hopes to offset the cost from the damage he caused to his friend’s vehicle. Presher pleaded guilty to insurance fraud in May.
“Insurance fraud costs the average American family between $400 and $700 every year in the form of increased insurance premiums,”
