A former Baltimore police officer has been sentenced in Baltimore County Circuit Court to six months of home detention in a scheme to cash fraudulent workers' compensation checks, the state attorney general's office said yesterday.
Andre Alan Stover, 40, of Woodlawn received more than $150,000 in fraudulent disability and medical payment checks between May 2003 and April 2004, according to the attorney general's office. He accepted the checks from a claims adjuster on a street corner, cashed them and returned to split the proceeds, the office said.
Stover, who was convicted of felony theft, was sentenced Tuesday to five years with all but six months on home detention suspended. Circuit Judge John Grason Turnbull II ordered Stover to pay $153,000 in restitution, according to the attorney general's office.
Stover was fired from the city police force in April 2003, a department spokesman said.
Also charged in the case was Natalie Mack, a former insurance claims adjuster with CompManagement Inc., authorities have said. Court records show that case is pending.
