Albany -- Seventeen people are indicted for insurance fraud,  many of them former or current city of Albany employees.

They're charged with filing false medical claims with AFLAC worth about $200,000. At least five of the defendants still work for Albany Public Works or Water, Gas, and Light.

Prosecutors say sanitation worker Timothy Hunt and his wife Kyshelia recruited co-workers and showed them how to file the insurance forms.

"False claims were based upon documents that were allegedly doctored, and then submitted to the AFLAC claims center. And AFLAC paid the money to them," said Chief Asst. D.A. Greg Edwards.

Each defendant could face five years in prison if convicted of insurance fraud.

In separate cases, the grand jury also indicted 17-year-old Eric Jackson and 20-year-old Matdrick Giddens for the murder of 19-year-old Timothy Murray. Murray was gunned down in gang violence in November on Rosedale Avenue.
