Mississippi woman indicted for insurance fraud, faces three years in prison

A 56-year-old Hattiesburg woman turned herself in Friday morning on a one-count indictment for insurance fraud, Attorney General Jim Hood announced.

Enotris Jordan was indicted by a Forrest County grand jury for filing a false insurance claim under a deceased man’s name. The benefits were sent to Jordan, and she converted them for her own use, according to the indictment. She was booked into the Forrest County Detention Center.

If convicted, Jordan faces up to three years in prison and $5,000 in fines. A charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

This case was investigated by AG Investigator Justin Harris and will be prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Marvin Sanders, both with the AG’s Public Integrity Division.
