(Boise) – Attorney General Lawrence Wasden says a Caldwell man has been sentenced for one count of insurance fraud. Fourth District Judge Steven Hippler on Monday ordered Zane L. Amy to spend 30 days in the Ada County Jail with the first five days to start immediately after his sentencing hearing and placed him on supervised probation for three years. Amy was ordered to perform 50 hours of community service and pay a $2,500 fine plus court costs.

The court granted a withheld judgment and suspended $1,000 of the fine. Amy also agreed to pay restitution to Farmers Insurance once an amount, estimated to be approximately $6,400, has been verified.

Amy, 33, pleaded guilty to one count of felony insurance fraud on May 23, 2016. By pleading guilty, he admitted to providing, as an independent agent, information purporting to be a nursing certificate allowing multiple clients to receive insurance premium discounts where they were not warranted.

Farmers 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 Insurance Crimes Unit.
