Former San Francisco 49ers Kicker Business Partner Sentenced for Insurance Fraud

December 17, 2008

An ex-business partner of former San Francisco 49ers kicker Ray Wersching has been sentenced to three years and three months in prison for insurance fraud.

Mary Ann Locke was also ordered to repay $8.3 million she embezzled from Farmers Insurance Group from 1997 to 2000 while serving as a partner with Wersching Agency, an insurance sales office. She pleaded guilty to embezzlement charges in 2006.

Wersching pleaded guilty last year to a misdemeanor count of failing to file a corporate tax return and was sentenced to probation. Wersching played for the 49ers from 1977 to 1987.

The U.S. Attorney’s office announced the sentencing.
