insurance-fraudATLANTA – A Bibb County resident has been sentenced for multiple counts of insurance fraud.

William Emerson Scruggs, 54, pleaded guilty to 23 counts of insurance fraud. A Bibb County Superior Court judge sentenced Scruggs to three years confinement to be served with a separate federal incarceration and 17 years of probation following confinement. In addition, Scruggs must pay $12,240 in restitution and perform 170 hours of community service.

The sentencing stems from a July 2014 investigation led by Hudgens’ Fraud division that found Scruggs, who owned Diamond Auto Painting, aided former insurance adjuster Patrick Dixon with the generation of false auto repair claims. Dixon is awaiting trial.
