Bracero pled guilty to one count of scheme to defraud and three counts of identity theft and was sentenced to a mandatory three years in prison and ordered to pay full restitution. “Fraud schemes like these impact Floridians throughout the state by driving up our insurance rates,” CFO Atwater said. “I applaud our investigator and industry partners for tracking down this fraudster and bringing her to justice.”
