Bingham County Woman Sentenced for Insurance Fraud

(Boise) – Attorney General Lawrence Wasden says a Shelley woman was sentenced Monday for one count of insurance fraud.  Seventh District Judge Dane Watkins gave Cristian D. Ceja-Aguilar a two-year fixed sentenced with a three-year indeterminate prison sentence.

The court suspended the sentence and placed Ceja-Aguilar on probation for four years, ordered her to perform 150 hours of community service and pay a $1,000 fine plus court costs.

Ceja-Aguilar, 33, pleaded guilty to one count of felony insurance fraud on August 9, 2016.  By pleading guilty, she admitted that she provided Geico Insurance a false statement when she reported her 2003 Chevy Avalanche was insured at the time of an accident.

Geico Insurance referred the case to the Idaho Department of Insurance’s Fraud Investigation Unit for additional investigation.  The case was prosecuted by Deputy Attorney General Nicole Schafer of the Attorney General’s Crimes Unit.
