Superintendent Charged with Fraud for Using Own Insurance to Help Ill Student
ELWOOD, Ind. – An Indiana school superintendent faces several charges after police say she sought medical treatment for a student using her son's name. Charges against Casey Smitherman include official misconduct, insurance fraud, insurance application fraud and identity deception. According to court documents, a 15-year-old student didn’t come to school on Jan. 9 because he had a sore throat. Smitherman picked him up and took him to the med check in Elwood so a doctor could examine him. However, she allegedly signed the student in under her son’s name and also had a prescription for Amoxicillin filled at CVS under her son's name.
