 Tuesday, October 3, 2017


A Haitian man who federal prosecutors say was the ringleader of an auto insurance scam involving as many as 50 staged car crashes was sentenced Monday to four years in prison and ordered to pay $207,000 in restitution. Mackenzy Noze, 33, a legal permanent U.S. resident who lived in Norwich, a city in southeastern Connecticut, and more than 15 other people staged the crashes in several towns in and around New London County between 2011 and 2014, authorities said. They fraudulently collected $6,500 to $30,000 in insurance payouts per crash, bilking insurance companies out of an estimated total of $600,000, according to court documents.
