Deputy prosecutor fired

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

A Marion County deputy prosecutor has been fired for withholding information regarding facts in a case involving her mother, who was arrested for insurance fraud.

Deputy prosecutor Kristina Whittenburg was fired March 13 for not being forthcoming about facts the Marion County Prosecutor's Office had regarding the investigation of her mother, Kimberly Whittenburg, for multiple counts of insurance fraud.

"We conducted search warrants and obtained information that showed the amount of knowledge that she had in her mother's case was more than she claimed to know," said Mario Massillamany, public information officer in the Marion County Prosecutor's Office.

Kimberly became the subject of an FBI and Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department investigation earlier this month after it was discovered she was allegedly approving fraudulent checks at her employer, MultiNational Underwriters in Indianapolis. She allegedly issued the checks to her friend, JoAn Woolbright, in Texas and then split the amount 50/50.

Kristina was interviewed March 9 and told IMPD that Woolbright was her mother's friend in Texas. A search warrant of the home she shared with her mother turned up several MultiNational Underwriters' checks and an envelope mailer with a "transactional record" from Woolbright to Kimberly in Kristina's bedroom.

Kristina had worked in the prosecutor's office for two years, one as an intern and one as a deputy prosecutor in the juvenile division, Massillamany said.
