Say What Now? Woman Sentenced to Prison for Cutting Off Her Hand in Insurance Policy Fraud

A woman has been sentenced to two years in prison for cutting off her own hand to collect on insurance policies.

via TMZ:

Julija Adlesic, a citizen of Slovenia, hatched a plan with her boyfriend, to collect on some big, fat insurance policies they took out on her. In all, they got 5 policies totaling more than $1 million.

To get the loot, they cut off her hand with a circular saw and then filed a claim — presumably some sort of disability claim.

The insurance policies would have paid her half up front and the balance in monthly installments.

Thing is … she got busted, and the 22-year-old woman was sentenced to 2 years in prison. The boyfriend got 3 years.

We gotta hand it to her — she was dedicated.
