Chicago Ald. Moreno Charged With Fraud, Obstruction of Justice
Moreno was charged with one count of insurance fraud of between $10,000 and $100,000, according to CPD spokesman Tom Ahern, and one count of obstruction of justice/destroying evidence – both felonies.
After he reported it stolen, police pulled over a woman driving the car, but she told them she and Moreno dated and he let her drive it. She was initially charged with trespass to a motor vehicle, but that charge was dismissed.
Moreno just lost his seat to Alderman-elect Daniel La Spata, slated to be sworn in on May 20.
