Attorney General Lawrence Wasden said a former Boise insurance agent was convicted of insurance fraud.
Fourth District Judge Steven Hippler sentenced Mylinh N. Fetterman to a one-year fixed term of five years indefinitely. She was immediately taken into custody. Fetterman was fined $ 31,090 to pay her former employer, Primerica Insurance.
Fetterman, 40, pleaded guilty on Jan. 22 of insurance fraud.
Between 2010 and 2014, Fetterman took money from his customers’ bank accounts and issued insurance policies in their names without their knowledge. As a result, Fetterman received commissions that she was not entitled to and her customers paid for policies they did not want.
The case was being investigated by the Idaho Department of Insurance and Primerica Insurance. Primerica fired Fetterman as a result of his investigation and notified the Idaho Department of Insurance. This case was being prosecuted by the Assistant Attorney General for Insurance Crime
Unit that serves as Ada County’s special attorneys.
