Marcellus woman ordered to repay in fraud case

A Marcellus woman, who has been charged with filing fraudulent accident claims, must pay back the benefits she received.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel made the announcement Thursday.

Following an investigation by the Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services Fraud Investigation Unit, Christine Presock was charged in St. Joseph County’s 3rd District Court with six counts of insurance-fraudulent acts, felonies punishable by up to four years in prison and/or a $50,000 fine.

Presock pleaded guilty last month in the 45th Circuit Court.

Judge Paul Stutesman last week sentenced Presock to two years of probation. She was also ordered to pay $12,500 in restitution to Trustmark Insurance Company, as well as costs and fees.

Investigators said Presock submitted six accident claims on behalf of herself and her family to Trustmark Insurance Company over a 14-month period starting in June 2018 for injuries reportedly suffered by herself, her husband and her two children.
