Casey Smitherman is a superintendent in Indiana. She was recently arrested and charged with insurance fraud, identity deception and official misconduct. How did she accumulate these charges? Because she used her own insurance to help a sick student. Smitherman was concerned for one of her 15 year-old students who had missed quite a few days of school. She had helped this student before by buying them clothes, and assisting them clean their home. When she arrived at the student’s home to check on them, Smitherman noticed that the student had symptoms of strep throat.
