Attorney General Jim Hood announced that a West Point woman has been formally charged with insurance fraud and wire fraud.
27-year-old Georgenna Edwards was indicted in April by a Clay County grand jury on one count of insurance fraud and one count of wire fraud.
The indictment alleges that Edwards submitted a false disability form to an insurance company in order to obtain money. The wire fraud charge is based on the fraudulent form being transmitted via facsimile from Clay County to Union County, according to the indictment.
Edwards was released on a $10,000 bond. If convicted, she faces the possible sentences of three years in prison and $5,000 in fines for insurance fraud, and five years in prison and $10,000 in fines for wire fraud.
