From U.S. Attorney's Office
U.S. Department of Justice, Western District of KY
PADUCAH, KY (Mon 22 May 2017) - A Marshall County, Kentucky, resident was recently sentenced in United States District Court, by Senior Judge Thomas B. Russell, to 51 months in prison, followed by a three year period of supervised release and was ordered to pay $109,064.94 in restitution for committing bank fraud and identity fraud announced United States Attorney John E. Kuhn, Jr.
Corey Thorson, 41, of Benton, Kentucky pleaded guilty to all charges in a six-count indictment on January 12, 2017 before Judge Russell. He was sentenced on Friday, May 19, 2017, and remains in federal custody.
Between May 2013, and December 2014, Thorson was employed at State Farm Insurance Agency. Thorson, during his employment with State Farm, had access to the personal information of his clients. Using their personal information, Thorson was able to apply for and receive numerous automobile loans under his clients' names. Thorson used their names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, and forged his clients' signatures on the loan documents. Further, he was able to influence State Farm Bank to approve the loans. Thorson knew he did not have authority to apply for or obtain these loans, but did so anyways with the intent to defraud State Farm Bank.
This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Nute A. Bonner, and was investigated by the Kentucky Department of Insurance and the Kentucky State Police.
