AN EVIL dad has been jailed after killing his two sons in a staged car accident, in a bid to receive the money due from their insurance.
California-based Ali F. Elmezayen, 45, has received the maximum sentence for his crime.
Who is Ali F. Elmezayen?
Ali F. Elmezayen, 45, is a cruel dad who has been jailed for murdering his two autistic sons in a staged car crash in order to cash in on their insurance policies.
What did Ali F. Elmezayen do?
The cold-blooded killer drove a car with his ex-wife and two youngest children off a wharf at the Port of Los Angeles in April 2015.
He escaped through the open driver’s side window of the car and swam to safety while his ex-wife escaped and was rescued by a nearby fisherman.
The couple's two sons, aged 8 and 13 tragically drowned.
Why did he do it?
Elmezayen had bought more than $3 million of life and accidental death insurance policies on himself and his family from eight different insurance companies between July 2012 and March 2013.
Elmezayen paid premiums in excess of $6,000 per year for these policies — despite reporting income of less than $30,000 per year on his tax returns.
The dad repeatedly called the insurance companies to verify that the policies were active and even called at least two of the companies to confirm his claims would not be investigated two years after he purchased the policies.
What sentence did he receive?
The evil dad has been jailed for 212 years.
The 45-year-old killer received the maximum sentence allowed by law.
US District Judge John F. Walter called the scheme "evil and diabolical" as well as "vicious and callous”.
"He is the ultimate phony and a skillful liar…and is nothing more than a greedy and brutal killer," Judge Walter said.
"The only regret that the defendant has is that he got caught."
According to Fox News, Walter also ordered Elmezayen to pay $261,751 in restitution to the insurance companies that he defrauded.
Elmezayen was arrested in November 2018 and he has remained in federal custody ever since.
He was found guilty in October 2019 of four counts of mail fraud, four counts of wire fraud, one count of aggravated identity theft, and five counts of money laundering.
