Amber Griffin, 34, is facing four counts of insurance fraud – presenting false information – and a second-degree theft charge.
According to court documents, Griffin “submitted medical insurance claims and as a result received benefits in the form of insurance proceeds of which she was not entitled to.”
Griffin received insurance proceeds of $720, $745, $620 $745 and $6,245 that she wasn’t entitled to, according to court records.
