Ex-insurance adjuster pleads guilty to fraud
A former insurance adjuster accused of providing “clean” titles for cars that should have had “salvage” titles pleaded guilty Friday in court to a misdemeanor charge of fraud.
Terry Robinson, 48, indicted for fraud and bribery by the Colorado Attorney General’s Office, was also sentenced Friday by Mesa County District Judge Brian Flynn.
Robinson was sentenced to a year of unsupervised probation and was ordered to repay $3,200 in restitution to the insurance company Colorado Casualty, which he did Friday.
Robinson’s actions allowed Camden Fortney, 67, owner of Camden Motors, 2148 Broadway Ave., to sell the cars for more than they were worth, according to court records.
Robinson also will have to testify at Fortney’s trial, according to terms of the sentencing.
Fortney in November pleaded not guilty to charges of commercial bribery, which were handed up by a state grand jury earlier this year.
His trial starts March 29.
