School Superintendent Arrested After Using Personal Insurance For Student

The superintendent of an Indiana school was charged with insurance fraud after she allegedly used her insurance to get medical treatment for a sick student.

Elwood Community Schools superintendent Casey Smitherman was released on $500 bail after she was charged with the felonies of insurance fraud, identity deception and official misconduct on Tuesday.

According to WISH-TV, Smitherman went to check on the welfare of a 15-year-old student at his home and found he had strep throat. He was denied treatment at a clinic, so Smitherman took him to another clinic and used her son's name to check him in and to get a prescription for an antibiotic.

Smitherman said in a statement on Wednesday, she's going to participate in a diversion program. Once completed, the charges will be dropped, provided she's not arrested again in 2019. (TIME)
