Lanquist sentenced for insurance fraud

Print Article

A Post Falls man was sentenced Wednesday to probation and community service for providing false information on a life insurance application.

Tosh Lanquist, 44, was also ordered to pay $10,940 in restitution.

Lanquist pleaded guilty to insurance fraud on Feb. 24 after an investigation revealed he applied for long-term disability coverage with Unum Life Insurance in October 2014. On his application, Lanquist falsely stated he was not employed, had no sources of income other than short-term disability coverage and that he did not have any professional certificates. Lanquist received his Idaho real estate license on June 3, 2014 and was working as a real estate agent when he completed the Unum application.

Kootenai County District Judge Cynthia Meyer sentenced Lanquist to perform 300 hours of community service in lieu of jail and to pay a fine of $500, plus court costs. He was also ordered to pay $1,248 in restitution to the Department of Insurance and $9,692 in restitution to Unum. The defendant received a withheld judgment and six months of supervised probation. He paid both restitution amounts in full on Thursday and has completed 166 hours of community service.
