A Daly City councilwoman faces 12 counts of insurance fraud related to what prosecutors call a phony workers compensation claim.

Maggie Gomez is due in court December 1st to answer the felony fraud and perjury allegations.

Prosecutors say she filed an injury claim in 2005 while working as a PR manager at Seton Medical Center.

The DA's office contends Gomez lied about her physical condition to company representatives over two years.

She has yet to enter a plea to the charges.
