An Auburn man has pleaded guilty in King County Superior Court to filing a false insurance claim, a misdemeanor.

Danylo Pavlenko’s conviction will be suspended when the 33-year-old man completes one day in jail and 12 months’ probation, and pays $1,700 in fees and fines, and $2,000 in restitution to Allstate Insurance.

According to Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler’s Criminal Investigations Unit, Pavlenko filed a claim in February 2016 for vandalism damage to his 2013 Acura sedan. Allstate declared the car a total loss and requested the proof of purchase for the vehicle to help determine its value.

Pavlenko, who owns a used-car dealership, submitted a falsified invoice showing he paid more than $35,000 for the vehicle, an attempt to increase the value of the car.

The vehicle sale record filed with the state Department of Licensing showed he actually purchased the car for $649 from his own dealership.
