Jonesville Insurance Agent Arrested on Four Counts of Bogus Insurance Sales

Baton Rouge- A former Jonesville insurance agent has been arrested and charged with a number of counts related to selling insurance without a license, and the records of his insurance agency have been seized, the Louisiana Department of Insurance has confirmed.

Aubry Roy Mophett, 74, of 103 First St., Jonesville, was arrested by Louisiana State Police today on multiple counts of insurance fraud, felony theft, misappropriation of premium and selling insurance without a license.

Mr. Mophett allegedly wrote numerous property and casualty insurance policies after his licence expired in May of 1999. The Department of Insurance issued Mr. Mophett a Cease and Desist order for operating without a valid license. The Fraud Section of the Department of Insurance subsequently received information that Mr. Mophett has written a number of property and casualty policies in violation of this Cease and Desist order.

The Department of Insurance then filed an injunction in District Court against Mr. Mophett for selling insurance without a license and violating a Cease and Desist Order.
