Criminal Practice – Insurance Fraud – Exploitation of an Elder Adult – Joinder – Wife’s Statements (access required)

State v. Pittman Defendant and his wife were both charged with insurance fraud, obtaining property by false pretenses, and the exploitation of an elder adult, and these charges arose out of the same scheme. Defendant sold policies to the victim, and his wife signed the paperwork necessary to add herself as the beneficiary on the policies. Since the offenses committed by defendant and his wife were closely connected, the trial court did not err when it joined the trials of defendant and his wife.
