DATE: February 23, 2017
CASE: Paige Nolasco (Case #16FE021897)
PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Kelly Mulcahy, Insurance Fraud Unit
Paige Nolasco pled no contest to felony insurance fraud. The Honorable Laurel White sentenced Nolasco to 90 days in jail, 5 years formal probation and ordered her to pay $1,781 in restitution.
On April 30, 2016, Paige Nolasco’s girlfriend rented a U-Haul truck and purchased insurance. Nolasco and her girlfriend intended to stage an accident and use the insurance money to repair Nolasco’s previously damaged car. The plan was for the girlfriend to run into Nolasco’s vehicle with the U-Haul and pretend they were strangers. The girlfriend backed out of the plan at the last minute. Nolasco proceeded to jump into the driver’s seat of the U-Haul and ran into her own car.
On May 9, 2016, Nolasco filed an insurance claim against U-Haul alleging someone driving a U-Haul hit her car. Subsequent investigation revealed Nolasco and her girlfriend lived together and were not strangers. Law enforcement also discovered evidence that the alleged damage to Nolasco’s car existed prior to the truck rental date. Nolasco later admitted to staging the accident.
