Oregon Woman Sentenced in Kootenai County for Insurance Fraud

On Wednesday, August 2, a judge in Kootenai County sentenced a 42-year-old Portland woman to jail, probation and ordered her to pay restitution.

Jennifer Cadwell pleaded guilty to Insurance Fraud in June after an investigation revealed she’d filed a false claim on her Safeco renter’s insurance policy. Cadwell was living in Kootenai County when she reported her home was burglarized and multiple personal items were stolen. Investigators discovered that she had pawned the personal items before the alleged burglary and prior to insuring the items with Safeco. Her insurance claim was denied.

Kootenai County District Judge Lansing L. Haynes sentenced Cadwell to 30 days in jail and ordered her to pay $1,967 in restitution to the Idaho Department of Insurance. The defendant received a withheld judgment and two years of supervised probation.

The case was prosecuted by Deputy Attorney General Jessica Cafferty of the Attorney General’s Special Prosecutions Unit.
