A Meridian woman who pleaded guilty to filing a false insurance claim with GEICO has been sentenced to 30 days in jail and four years of probation.

Razia Temori, 28, pleaded guilty to insurance fraud on Feb. 21 and was sentenced Tuesday by 4th District Judge Jonathan Medema, according to Attorney General Lawrence Wasden.

Temori was also ordered to notify her employer of her conviction. She received a withheld judgment subject to completing the terms of her sentence.

In May 2013, Temori filed a claim in with Progressive for damage to her vehicle, a 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser, according to the attorney general’s press release. Progressive issued her a $784.01 check.

Then in August 2013, Temori got an auto insurance policy through GEICO and, a month later, filed a claim for damage to the same vehicle. When insurance adjusters investigated, they discovered Temori’s GEICO claim was for the same damage reported to Progressive several months earlier.
