PITTSBURGH - A resident of Pittsburgh has been indicted by a federal grand jury on a charge of mail fraud, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

The one-count indictment named Frank A. Caligiuri, Jr., 41, as the sole defendant.

According to the indictment, Caligiuri defrauded GEICO Insurance through a false insurance claim for a stolen motorcycle.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of 20 years in prison, a fine of $250,000, or both.  Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offense and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Robert S. Cessar is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, Immigration Customs Enforcement and the Findlay Township Police Department conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.

An indictment or information is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
