An Issaquah woman has entered a modified guilty plea to 3 felony counts of using false claims or proof in an insurance claim.
Linda Ann Rose, 67, is scheduled for sentencing in King Couny Superior Court November 19th.
On Nov. 13, 2004, Rose was involved in a parking lot collision. An SUV backed out of a parking stall and struck Rose's rented Ford Mustang. Photos of both vehicles show minimal damage, but Rose claimed that she suffered severe back injuries as a result of the collision. In 2007, her attorney demanded $656,874 from the SUV owner's insurer, and subsequently filed a personal injury lawsuit in the case.
Investigators from the Washington Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler's Special Investigations Unit subsequently concluded that Rose knowingly provided altered medical records to her attorney, and that she had had an injured back "well before" the accident.
