Former Navy Chief Sentenced for $2 Million Insurance Fraud Scheme

Recommended Posts

SAN DIEGO – Christopher Toups, who at the time of his crimes was a chief petty officer in the U.S. Navy, was sentenced in federal court to 30 months in prison after admitting that he and others defrauded an insurance program meant to compensate service members who suffer serious and debilitating injuries while on active duty.

Toups’ sentence followed his guilty plea to conspiracy to commit wire fraud. According to his plea agreement, participants in the scheme obtained approximately $2 million in payments from fraudulent claims submitted to Traumatic Servicemembers Group Life Insurance Program, or TSGLI, and Toups personally obtained about $400,000. TSGLI was funded by service members and the Department of the Navy.
