Texan Sentenced In $3M Auto Insurance Fraud Case

Nearly a year after being convicted in a Houston courtroom, Earlie Dickerson was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison on September 14. He was charged with defrauding car insurance companies out of $3 million dollars.

The 41 year old is the former office manager at Sanjoh & Associates, a company that represented itself as a law firm but didn't employ any lawyers, according to courtroom evidence gathered by The Eagle, Bryan, Texas.

U.S. Attorney's obtained a conviction for Dickerson in Oct. 2013.  Edward Graham, 38, Chase Lindsey, 46, and Brittany Jessie, 24, who are also Bryan residents, were arrested in connection with the crime. Lindsey and Jessie took plea deals and received sentences of 24 and 30 months in federal prison.

Graham was convicted with Dickerson and is set to receive sentencing on Oct. 14, according to The Eagle.
