Allstate Employee Sentenced for Tax Evasion
Former Allstate employee Robert Groebner was sentenced to one
year probation, ten months of home confinement with electronic monitoring
and a fine of $10,000 on December 6 for filing a false income tax
return. In addition, Groebner, who was sentenced in U.S. District
Court in the Northern District of Illinois, must $119,680 in restitution.
In the original complaint filed by the U.S. attorney in August,
Groebner, who once served as an auto damage adjuster for Allstate,
is alleged to have demanded and received approximately $60,000 in
cash payments from three owners of body shops in the Chicago area,
in exchange for the body shops to remain on Allstate's PRO shop
list and to receive the same volume of referrals from the company.
He did not report these earnings on his 2001 tax return, which led
to the aforementioned case.
