Florida man ordered to repay $8K in workers’ comp benefits

Ryan Strohm, of Cocoa Beach, Florida, pleaded guilty July 9 in Franklin County Court of Common Pleas to one count of workers’ compensation fraud, a fifth-degree felony.

BWC received an allegation that Strohm withdrew from his BWC-paid college courses, but submitted grades to BWC as if he had completed those courses. He received benefits while attending college to assist with his return to work goals. Investigators reviewed college transcripts and confirmed that Strohm submitted false college records and made false statements to BWC from June 2011 to June 2012. Investigators also conducted customer interviews, and confirmed that Strohm returned to work as a self-employed contractor from July 2011 to June 2012.

Strohm agreed to repay $8,472.08 in restitution. He was sentenced to three years of community control. He was also sentenced to seven months of incarceration, but that portion of the sentence was suspended.
