BOISE — A Twin Falls man will serve five years of probation, do community service and pay a fine after pleading guilty to insurance fraud.
Riley Presher, 27, was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty in May, Attorney General Lawrence Wasden said in a statement.
Fifth District Court Judge Rosemary Emory sentenced Presher five years in prison. She then suspended the sentence and placed Presher on five years of supervised probation. The court also ordered 120 days of jail time to be served with options, as well as 150 hours of community service. In lieu of the jail time, Presher was given the opportunity to perform an additional 150 hours of community service. Presher was ordered to pay a $750 fine and court costs. He will also pay $1,260 in restitution to the Idaho Department of Insurance and $1,943 to Sentry Insurance. Finally, Emory ordered 30 days of discretionary jail time to be used by Presher’s probation officer.
Wasden said Presher backed his uninsured truck into his friend’s vehicle in December 2017. The next morning, Presher purchased insurance for his vehicle. Several hours later, he filed a claim for the accident.
Presher later admitted to investigators he misrepresented the collision date to his insurance company.
Deputy Attorneys General Jessica Cafferty and David Morse in the Attorney General’s Special Prosecutions Unit prosecuted the case. The Department of Insurance investigated.
