Sacramento County woman sentenced in insurance fraud case

Published: Friday, Jan. 3, 2014 - 3:49 pm

A 21-year-old woman has been sentenced to 300 days in jail for her role in an insurance fraud case.

Angelique Jones was also placed on five years formal probation after pleading no contest to the felony violation of insurance fraud. She was sentenced today in Sacramento Superior Court.

Jones and co-defendants Susan Lee, Kristel Marquez and Angela Medeiros staged an accident using a rented U-Haul truck to fraudulently collect insurance monies from U-Haul’s vehicle insurance carrier, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office news release.

On Dec. 12, 2011, Medeiros rented a U-Haul truck and purposely collided with Lee’s car, in which Jones and Marquez were passengers, authorities said. Shortly afterward, the women filed bodily injury claims with U-Haul’s insurance company. When questioned by the insurance company, Medeiros denied knowing any of the occupants in the car and the occupants denied knowing her.

The California Department of Insurance investigated the matter and discovered through the defendants’ Facebook listings that Medeiros was Jones’ mother, and Lee’s and Marquez’s mother-in-law.

Jones’ co-defendants previously pleaded no contest to a felony violation of insurance fraud. Each was sentenced to 180 days in county jail and placed on five years felony probation.
