Plea deal still mulled in vehicle-title probe
Former insurance adjuster Terry Robinson, 48, indicted for fraud and bribery by the Colorado Attorney General’s Office, again had a plea agreement deadline extended in court by a judge.
Robinson was expected to enter a plea Thursday in front of Mesa County District Court Judge Brian Flynn. The deadline was extended to Robinson’s next court date, Dec. 4.
Robinson’s attorney, Colleen Scissors, said she needed more time in the case for her client to consider two plea offers and to consider more information in the case.
Robinson is accused of providing “clean” titles for cars that should have had “salvage” titles, allowing Camden Fortney, 67, owner of Camden Motors, 2148 Broadway Ave., to sell the cars for more than they were worth, according to court records.
Fortney’s next court date is Monday. Terrance Gillespie, senior assistant Colorado attorney general, said in court by phone Thursday that Fortney will enter a not guilty plea at that time.
Colorado Casualty ended up paying more than $500,000 to buy back vehicles with the faulty titles, according to court records.
