JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) — An Itawamba County grand jury handed up an indictment against a man from Fulton in an insurance fraud case.

The Mississippi attorney general's office said Matthew Perry, 34, was arrested Friday for insurance fraud, false pretense and mail fraud.

Prosecutors said Perry sold commercial liability insurance to someone from Alabama even though he is not licensed to do so and the insurer that is listed does not exist.

He could get up to 18 years in prison if convicted on all three charges.
