Utah Windshield Repair Shop Owner Pleads Not Guilty to Fraud Charges
May 4, 2011
A Utah windshield repair shop owner pled not guilty this week to nine counts of identity fraud and fraudulent insurance acts. The Utah attorney general brought the charges against Cody DeWayne Jacobsen in April for “fraudulently obtaining windshield repair authorizations under his clients’ insurance policies.”
When interviewed by the investigators from the Utah Department of Insurance Jacobsen admitted that he did contact Farmers Insurance, but claimed it was a way to provide “customer service” to his customers.
A preliminary hearing was set for June 1.
The Utah Department of Insurance declined to comment as the criminal case is still in progress.
