A Dallas woman with a history of filing 31 insurance claims against a dozen companies got burned when one turned out to be arson.

Genevieve Thompson was sentenced this week to 30 years in prison after Dallas Judge Tracy Holmes found Thompson intentionally set her house on fire to collect insurance money. Thompson pleaded guilty to arson and insurance fraud.

On June 12, 2017, the Dallas Fire Department was called to a house fire on Rock Bluff Drive. An investigation found that the fire had been started on purpose. The Texas Department of Insurance Fraud Unit assisted the Dallas Fire Department on the case. Their investigation revealed Thompson had filed at least 15 insurance claims on her home in the 18 months before the fire.

Stephanie Martin, the lead prosecutor for the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office was assisted by TDI Chief Prosecutor Kyson Johnson. Dallas County is one of five district attorney’s offices around the state that work with TDI by embedding prosecutors and investigators to fight insurance fraud.
