Could receive life in prison for aggravated robbery charge
WEBER COUNTY, Utah June 12, 2017 – The Office of the Utah Attorney General (OAG) announced today that Kacy Peterson, 48, of Ogden, Utah pleaded guilty last week to a First Degree Felony charge of aggravated robbery and a Third Degree Felony for forgery on an insurance fraud case. The ATM case stems from a tip to OAG investigators in late October 2016.
Peterson, with conspirators, decided to use a Taser to attack an ATM worker, steal the ATM worker’s keys, and take the cash held in the machine. However, before the conspirators could execute their plan to attack the ATM worker, OAG investigators obtained warrants and arrested them.
On the insurance fraud case, Peterson sent fraudulent emails, claiming to be his insurance representative, to a rental car company with the purpose to defraud the company.
Peterson is scheduled to be sentenced on both cases on July 31, 2017. For the aggravated robbery charge, he faces five years to life in the state prison and a fine of up to $10,000. For forgery, Peterson could be sentenced from zero to five years in the state prison and receive a fine of up to $5,000. This case was prosecuted by the Special Prosecution Section and Insurance Fraud Section of the OAG Justice Division.
