County Commissioner Bob Coleman, who, along with his wife Sherry was indicted in January on 15 counts of violating the Georgia Insurance Code, now faces six additional charges, handed down by the Grand Jury this morning. The new counts only pertain to Mr. Coleman, as his wife Sherry is not named in the indictment.
The new charges against Coleman amount to two counts of Insurance Fraud and four counts of Violating the Reporting and Disposition of Premium Requirement of the Georgia Insurance Code.
In the indictment, Coleman is alleged to have taken premium payments in the amount of 467 dollars to provide Homeowners' Insurance from Robert Gary, Jr. and, rather than purchase the insurances, converted the money to his own benefit. He is also accused of having taken $505.91 in premiums from William Daniel Wilson, for the purpose of purchasing worker's comp insurance and, rather than purchasing the policy, converting that money to his own use.
Coleman continues to sit on the Glynn County Board of Commissioners as an At-Large County Commissioner despite being under indictment for charges that concern fiscal malfeasance.
