Paris Man Indicted on Crop Insurance Fraud Charges

A Paris man was indicted on Thursday, November 1, 2018 on charges of crop insurance fraud. The indictment alleges that as early as crop year 2010, Keith Foley, 49, a tobacco producer in Bourbon and Jessamine counties, hid his tobacco production from insurance companies, in order to claim damage to his crop sufficient to trigger crop insurance indemnity payments or generate larger indemnity payments, which are funded by the federal government through the FCIC. The indictment also charged Foley with conspiracy to commit wire fraud. A court date has not yet been scheduled.
