FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 17, 2008) – A Louisville business owner has been charged with eight felony counts of insurance fraud and eight felony counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument after allegedly presenting fraudulent liability insurance certificates for his business, All Star Trucking Company.

Robert E. Holbert, 65, allegedly provided the fake documents to at least five companies doing business with All Star Trucking, claiming to have valid coverage when he did not, according to an investigation by the Kentucky Department of Insurance Fraud Investigation Division.

A pre-trial conference is scheduled for Sept. 2 in Jefferson Circuit Court. If found guilty, Holbert faces a prison term of one to five years on each count (not to exceed 20 years); a fine of up to $10,000 per count; or both imprisonment and a fine.
