Newark roofer sentenced for workers’ comp fraud

Charles Mattox, of Newark (Licking County), pleaded guilty July 28 in Franklin County Court of Common Pleas to one count of workers’ compensation fraud, a first-degree misdemeanor.

BWC’s special investigations unit received an allegation that Mattox was performing side jobs for cash payment while receiving workers’ compensation benefits. Investigators conducted surveillance, reviewed bank records and conducted interviews, all of which served as evidence to support the allegation.

Mattox was sentenced to 90 days of incarceration, which was suspended for six months of community control. He must also pay $2,601.03 in restitution to BWC.
