Stow woman caught double-dipping from state agencies, ordered to repay $57K

Sandy DurieuxSandy Durieux, of Stow (Summit County), was convicted Sept. 15 in Franklin County Court of Common Pleas of workers’ compensation fraud, a fifth-degree felony.

The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation’s (BWC) Special Investigations Department (SID) received an allegation that Durieux was working as a licensed individual provider for the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) while receiving temporary total disability benefits. Injured workers are not permitted to work while receiving this type of benefit.

Investigators obtained DODD records, which verified that Durieux billed DODD for work activity while at the same time advising BWC she was unable to work at all.

Durieux was sentenced to 12 months of incarceration, which was suspended for 18 months of community control. She must also pay $57,803.62 in restitution to BWC and court costs.
