A Pass Christian woman turned herself in Wednesday after being indicted on Insurance and Wire Fraud charges.

Paulina Wilkerson, 40, is accused of defrauding Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Company of insurance proceeds to which she was not entitled. The wire fraud charges accuse Wilkerson of transmitting fraudulent documents across jurisdictional lines in order to receive payment for injuries allegedly received in a work related accident.

If convicted, Wilkerson faces up to three years for insurance fraud and up to five years for wire fraud.
