Life agent in Iowa convicted of stealing client premiums

August 14, 2018, Des Moines, IA — A December sentencing has been scheduled for an Iowa man accused of selling fraudulent life insurance policies and keeping the money.

Prosecutors say a jury last week found 59-year-old Roger Goodwin guilty of seven counts of mail fraud. His sentencing is set for Dec. 19 in U.S. District Court in Des Moines.

Prosecutors say that between 2013 and August 2016, Goodwin recommended life insurance or annuity contracts to several clients and then deposited their checks in his bank account.

Authorities say the Windsor Heights, Iowa, man used part of the money for his personal expenses and some of it to repay other clients or make payments to insurance companies on behalf of other clients.
