Maryland Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced the indictments of Jane Weigman Gnacyk (a former claims specialist with the Maryland Automobile Insurance Fund), Linda Weigman Lunghi, and Mary Ellen Weigman Webster, on multiple counts of felony theft, felony theft scheme, and conspiracy to commit felony theft.
The three sisters were indicted by an Anne Arundel County grand jury. The indictments allege that the Weigman sisters conspired to steal $64,912 from MAIF (Maryland Automobile Insurance Fund). MAIF is the agency that insures drivers who have been refused insurance by private companies.
According to the indictments, Gnacyk of Pasadena, Md., faces 25 felony counts and a count of conspiracy, occurring between March 31, 1994 and July 22, 2003; Lunghi, also of Pasadena, faces 16 felony counts and a count of conspiracy, occurring between March 9, 2000 and July 22, 2003; Webster of Glen Burnie, Md. faces five felony counts and a count of conspiracy occurring between March 31, 1994 and July 29, 1999.
While an indictment or charge is merely an accusation of wrongdoing and every individual is presumed innocent unless the State proves the charges beyond a reasonable doubt, each of these charges, if proved, carries a maximum penalty of 15 years and up to a $1,000.00 fine.
