SHARE Report: Former Cubs pitcher Ted Lilly charged with insurance fraud

Retired Major League Baseball pitcher Ted Lilly has been charged with insurance fraud in San Luis Obispo County, according to KSBY in California.

Lilly, 39, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to three separate charges filed by the San Luis Obispo County district attorney’s office.

Here’s more from the report:

According to the California Department of Insurance, Lilly damaged his RV worth around $200,000 but did not file a claim until after he purchased insurance on the vehicle. The amount of the claim is not known at this time. Assistant District Attorney Lee Cunningham alleges the crimes happened in March of last year. I can tell you that he’s charged with three different felony counts. The first is filing a false insurance claim. The second one is a false statement in support of a claim and the third one has to do with failing to disclose a material fact in connection with an insurance claim, Cunningham said.

If convicted, Lilly faces up to five years in jail.

Lilly played 15 years in Major League Baseball, including four with the Cubs from 2007-10. According to baseballreference.com, Lilly earned more than $80 million during his career.

Lilly declined comment to KSBY and is scheduled to be back in court Feb. 5, according to the report.
