Executive for Workers Compensation Insurance Convicted
A Montgomery executive was convicted of 23 counts of mail fraud, embezzlement, and filing a false report.
The executive, John Goff, used to head the Goff Group which supplied workers compensation in North Carolina. Prosecutors say he kept a lot of money from the company for himself, and he failed to pay out more than $4 million in premiums. Prosecution stated that Goff was put in a position of trust and abused the trust that was given to him.
John Goff could expect to spend more than 20 years in jail if convicted on all counts. The defense is likely to appeal the convictions.
