Man Gets 5 Years for Workers’ Comp Fraud
On Thursday, a judge ordered a Scranton, Pennsylvania man to pay restitution for the workers' compensation benefits he fraudulently collected. The money amounted to nearly $650,000.
The man was also sentenced to 5 years and 10 months in prison. Judges often penalize cases like these harshly because they hurt workers who have legitimate compensation needs.
