Brian Wynn Stevens, 34, of Helendale, pled guilty to one count of insurance fraud stemming from an auto accident that occurred while he was uninsured, according to an investigation by the California Department of Insurance (CDI). He was sentenced to 15 days in county jail, three years probation and a $150 fine. Stevens surrendered to authorities on June 13 and was booked into the Placer County Jail. The Placer County District Attorney’s Office prosecuted the case.

According to CDI Fraud investigators, on March 10, 2003, Stevens reportedly was involved in a motor vehicle accident while uninsured. Later that day, Stevens allegedly purchased insurance online through Esurance. On March 11, Stevens stated in a recorded statement that he purchased the policy prior to the accident. He later admitted to investigators during an interview that he had purchased the policy after the accident.
