Felony Fraud Charges Dismissed

January 2018

An immigrant waiting for a U-Visa woke up one morning and her truck had disappeared.  She called the police.  Later it was found 20 miles away, vandalized and abandoned.  The insurance company was suspicious because the immigrant had both keys and they wondered how the truck had been moved.  An insurance investigator decided there was fraud.  They hired an expert witness from out of state who said no different keys had been used to move the car so the immigrant must have done it.

The immigrant was charged with a second-degree Felony insurance fraud!  She was facing up to 15 years in prison, and deportation.  Our attorneys at Keen Law Offices were very concerned and began to obtain all the reports and discovered several discrepencies.  There were many different ways a vehicle could have been moved without a key, by towing etc.  In addition the insurance company ultimately fixed the vehicle.  The prosecutor initially only offered a plea agreement to a lower felony.  After the prosecutor was presented with evidence and arguments, all the charges were ultimately dismissed.

Sworn To Advocate For Our Clients

“My father was a U.S. citizen, but I was born in another country.” Everyone in the government kept telling me I didn’t belong in the U.S., that I should give up and go “home” to the U.K. Immigration kept trying to get rid of me, and even issued a deportation order. Luckily, I found Keen Law Offices. Mr. Keen was the only person who believed I was a citizen; he fought my case, and after a long battle, Immigration gave in. They even issued me a certificate stating that I was a U.S. citizen since birth!”Stephen, Immigration Client
