REDDING, Calif. - Andrew Darol Buckley, 54, pleaded no contest to forgery charges and was sentenced to three years felony probation and ordered to pay more than $3,600 in fines and restitution. Buckley surrendered his California insurance license at the time of his arrest on May 23, 2014.

"Agents are trusted with sensitive personal information and are expected to act in the best interest of their clients," said Commissioner Jones. "It is disturbing that Mr. Buckley made the poor decision to deceive his family members and jeopardize his livelihood."

The arrest of Buckley was the result of a joint investigation with the Shasta County Sheriff's Office. In March 2014 detectives discovered that Buckley used personal information and forged signatures of family members on life insurance applications. Buckley also made himself the primary beneficiary on the policies and received unearned commissions from the insurer for the bogus sales.

Buckley was prosecuted by the Shasta County District Attorney's Office.
