A former Coeur d’Alene woman was sentenced last week after pleading guilty to insurance fraud.
Laila Hiza, 30, was was ordered to serve 150 hours of community service, two years of felony probation and pay restitution costs of $348 to the Idaho Department of Insurance. She was ordered her to pay court costs of $638 from a previous DUI case.
Hiza was uninsured when she struck a motorcycle while backing out of a parking space in Kootenai County in 2015, according to the Idaho Department of Insurance. She and the owner of the motorcycle then reportedly conspired to report a false date for the accident. After calling to initiate a new policy on her car, both Hiza and the owner of the motorcycle provided the false date to the insurance company.
