CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - A Conway man has been found guilty for presenting a false claim of insurance payment.

Attorney General Alan Wilson announced that 27-year-old Judson Alan Stanley was convicted of one count of Presenting a False Claim for Insurance Payment over $10,000 in Horry County General Sessions Court on July 16, 2015.

In May of 2014, Stanley stripped off parts of a co-defendant's 2007 Cadillac Escalade. The co-defendant then parked the vehicle at an abandoned parking lot and reported there was transmission problems to a towing company, which discovered the vehicle stripped. A police report was made by the co-defendant claiming vandalism and filed a claim with an insurance company for the damage. Stanley attempted to have the stripped part reinstalled on the vehicle at a repair shop as if they were newly-acquired parts.

Judge Benjamin H. Culbertson sentenced Stanley to the maximum sentence, 10 years in prison. Stanley had two previous convictions for presenting a false claim for insurance payment and was on probation at the time of the trial. The judge revoked the defendant's probation on the previous charges and also sentenced him to five years on his probation violation to run concurrent to the sentence, according to Mark Powell.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant Attorneys General Melissa Manning and Deanene Thornwell, and was investigated by SLED.
