Nebraska Woman Sentenced for Theft From Employer, Insurer

August 12, 2009

A North Platte, Neb., woman accused of stealing from a chiropractor office where she had worked, as well as from an insurance company, has been sentenced.

Sherri Smith pleaded guilty to misdemeanor theft and insurance fraud charges in Lincoln County Court.

She was sentenced to 18 months probation and 15 days in the Lincoln county jail. If she fails to successfully complete probation, she will receive another 180 days in jail.

Authorities say Smith took $8,500 from the Hoover Chiropractic Center and bilked an insurance company out of $68,000 by making reimbursement claims for chiropractic services she and her family received for free. Investigators found other insurance transactions sent through Smith’s bank account for more than $11,000.

Smith has reimbursed the chiropractor.
