A Buckingham socialite known for her lavish lifestyle could spend the rest of her life in state prison after she was convicted Tuesday of filing nearly $13 million in false insurance claims following a 2013 fire at her family’s 10-acre estate. After a 4-1/2 hour deliberation, the jury of 10 men and two women convicted Claire Risoldi, 71, on six of nine charges, finding she cheated insurer AIG out of $2.75 million it paid for false claims related to drapes and alternative living expenses, and she attempted to bilk the insurer out of another $10 million for a false claim on a separate jewelry policy.
