Man pleads guilty to workers’ compensation fraud
A man has received probation after pleading guilty to workers’ compensation fraud and filing a false report.
The 28 year-old paramedic shot himself in January but said that a man wearing a lime green jacket with NASCAR badges on it shot him. While the shooting was under investigation, the man broke down and admitted he made the story up and the wound was self-inflicted.
A judge has sentenced him to thirty-six months probation for workers’ compensation fraud and one year for filing a false report, both will be served concurrently.
