VENTURA, California – District Attorney Erik Nasarenko announced today that Tevon Jermaine Moore (DOB 03/28/01), formerly of Port Hueneme, pled guilty to automobile insurance fraud.
In September 2020, Moore was in an automobile accident. After the accident, he obtained an auto insurance policy from Progressive. Moore later called the company claiming he was involved in an accident shortly after he obtained the policy.
Subsequent investigation by the California Department of Insurance, Progressive and the District Attorney’s Office Auto Insurance Fraud Unit revealed that Moore fabricated the time of the accident, in an attempt to get insurance coverage for his vehicle. Moore was arrested in Mississippi by the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Unit and brought back to Ventura County to face charges.
Moore is scheduled to be sentenced on August 18, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. in courtroom 12 of the Ventura County Superior Court. Automobile insurance fraud is punishable by up to five years in county jail.
