Ex-insurance agent gets 20 days for fraud

A former Mutual of Omaha insurance agent from Rathdrum is to spend 20 days in jail for submitting a life insurance policy application in a client’s name without her knowledge.

Wesley Bruce Thompson, 58, submitted the life insurance policy application by scanning the client’s signature from another policy and photocopying it onto the false application, according to a news release. He pleaded guilty to insurance fraud on July 29.

On Tuesday, Judge John Mitchell ordered Thompson to serve 20 days in jail, complete 400 hours of community service and pay $4,210 in restitution, the news release said.

The Special Prosecutions Unit of the Attorney General’s Criminal Law Division and the Idaho Department of Insurance investigated the case at the request of Mutual of Omaha.
