Broker charged with defrauding Hanks

LOS ANGELES

A Southern California insurance broker was arrested Wednesday on allegations he overcharged Tom Hanks, musician Andy Summers and others hundreds of thousands of dollars for insurance premiums.

Jerry B. Goldman, who was arrested at his Thousand Oaks home, remained jailed Wednesday, U.S. attorney’s spokesman Thom Mrozek said.

A federal grand jury in Los Angeles indicted him Oct. 30 on fraud charges.

A call to his public defender, Yasmin Cader, was not returned immediately.

The indictment claims that between 1998 and last year, Goldman overcharged Hanks, Summers and two other victims more than $800,000 on insurance policies. He sent the insurance companies the premiums and kept the overcharged amount, prosecutors claim.
