Quincy Hoffman Sentenced to Prison for Insurance Fraud

(Boise) – Caldwell resident, Quincy D. Hoffman, was sentenced for committing insurance fraud, Attorney General Lawrence Wasden announced today. Third District Judge Molly Huskey ordered Hoffman to serve a minimum of five years and up to ten years in prison. The court also imposed a $600 fine and ordered Hoffman to pay $4,700 in restitution.

Hoffman, 35, pleaded guilty to two counts of insurance fraud on June 2, 2014. By pleading guilty, he admitted that on October 26, 2012, he reported to the Canyon County Sheriff's Office that his 2003 Dodge pickup had been stolen when he knew this was not true. Hoffman claimed that he had run out of gas and walked to the nearest gas station, and when he returned several hours later to the place where his vehicle was parked, it was gone.

On November 1, 2012, Hoffman filed a loss claim with his insurance carrier, Allstate Insurance. Later that month, he filed a claim with an inventory of more than $1,800 of personal items in the pickup that he alleged were also stolen.

The Meridian Police Department was made aware of Hoffman's intent to sell his vehicle and then to later report the vehicle stolen so he could file a fraudulent insurance claim. Insurance investigators were notified by the Meridian Police Department in early 2013 that Hoffman had been paid $1,000 for his vehicle prior to him reporting it stolen.
