Trumbull County man ordered to repay $5K for workers’ comp fraud

David Martindale, of Warren in Trumbull County, pleaded guilty Oct. 9 in Warren Municipal Court to one count of workers’ compensation fraud, a first-degree misdemeanor.

Investigators with the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation’s Special Investigations Department began looking into the matter after receiving an allegation that Martindale was working while receiving BWC benefits. Financial records and interviews showed that Martindale did return to work while receiving workers’ compensation benefits.

Martindale was sentenced to serve 180 days in jail, which was suspended for five years of probation. He was also fined $200 plus court costs, and ordered to repay $5,679.64 in restitution to BWC. If he violates the terms of his probation, Martindale will serve the jail time.
