Port Hueneme Man Pleads Guilty To Automobile Insurance Fraud

VENTURA, California – District Attorney Erik Nasarenko announced today that Jason Aguilar (DOB 02/23/89), formerly of Port Hueneme, pled guilty to automobile insurance fraud.

In July 2018, Aguilar allowed his automobile insurance policy to lapse by failing to make payment. In August 2018, Aguilar was in an automobile accident. After the accident, Aguilar called his auto insurance company and reinstated his policy. At the time he reinstated his policy, Aguilar falsely stated that he had not been in any automobile collisions or accidents in the prior six months. Aguilar later reported to his auto insurance carrier that he was in an accident once the policy had been reinstated.

Subsequent investigation by the National Insurance Crime Bureau, Progressive Insurance Company and the District Attorney’s Office Auto Insurance Fraud Unit revealed that Aguilar fabricated the actual date and time of the accident to secure insurance coverage for the resulting accident.

Aguilar is scheduled to be sentenced on September 7, 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.
