Ashtabula County man sentenced for workers’ comp fraud

Starcher

Bryan Starcher of Austinburg in Ashtabula County pleaded guilty May 22 to one count of workers’ compensation fraud.

BWC opened an investigation after receiving an allegation that Starcher had been working as a truck driver for a cement company and as a bouncer at a bar while receiving benefits for a prior workplace injury.

An analysis of financial records and witness interviews showed that Starcher in fact did return to work as a truck driver at a cement company and as a bouncer at a bar while receiving Temporary Total Disability.  Starcher was also interviewed and he admitted that he was not entitled to the benefits.

A Franklin County Common Pleas Court judge sentenced Starcher to 30 days of incarceration.  He also submitted a $1,500 payment to cover restitution.
