Ex-Maryland lawyer Gets Probation for Role in Insurance Scam

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP)- Authorities say a former Maryland attorney who pleaded guilty to insurance fraud has been sentenced to two years of probation.           

State Attorney General Brian Frosh's office said in a news release Tuesday that Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Melissa Phinn also ordered 48-year-old James Wu to pay $4,140 in restitution.           

Wu, a resident of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, was a licensed attorney in Maryland but has been disbarred.           

Frosh's office says Wu represented four insurance claimants accused of staging a car crash in Baltimore. The attorney general's news release says one of the claimants told Wu that the crash had been orchestrated and was faked.           

Frosh's office says Wu misappropriated a $7,800 payout for the insurance claim and kept more than half of the money for his legal fee.
