Chiropractor Pleads Not Guilty to Mass. Car Insurance Fraud

April 17, 2008

A Haverhill, Mass. chiropractor has pleaded not guilty to fraud and larceny charges for his alleged role in an auto insurance fraud ring.

Prosecutors say 40-year-old Troy Wheelwright of Amesbury was involved in a ring that staged four car accidents between October 2002 and February 2003.

Wheelwright was arraigned Tuesday in Salem Superior Court on a variety of charges, including motor vehicle insurance fraud and larceny over $250. He was released on personal recognizance and ordered to surrender his passport.

Six other alleged members of the ring, including another chiropractor, are scheduled to be arraigned Thursday.

Wheelwright is due in court again on May 20 for a pretrial conference.
