Facebook Account Helps Send Young Woman to Jail





District Attorney Jan Scully recently announced that 21-year-old Angelique Jones was sentenced to 300 days in the county jail and placed on 5 years formal probation after pleading to a felony violation of insurance fraud.

Jones and co-defendants Susan Lee, Kristel Marquez, and Angela Medeiros decided to stage an accident using a rented U-Haul truck in order to fraudulently collect insurance monies from UHaul's vehicle insurance carrier.

On December 12, 2011, Medeiros rented a U-Haul truck and purposely collided with Lee's car that was also occupied by Jones and Marquez. Shortly after, all the defendants filed bodily injury claims with U-Haul's insurance company. When questioned by the insurance company, Medeiros denied knowing any of the occupants in the car and all of the occupants denied knowing Medeiros.

The California Department of Insurance investigated this matter and discovered through the defendants' Facebook listings that Medeiros was Jones' mother and Lee's and Marquez's mother-in-law.

Jones' co-defendants previously pled to a felony violation of insurance fraud and each was sentenced to 180 days in the county jail and placed on 5 years felony probation.
