BWC received two separate allegations that Milam was working while receiving temporary total disability benefits. Injured workers are not permitted to work while receiving this type of benefit. Investigators reviewed payroll records, which showed that Milam worked as a subcontractor for a gutter company in 2010 while receiving temporary total disability.

Milam was ordered to pay $3,288.24 in restitution. He was placed on community control with basic supervision for two years. Milam was also given 12 months at the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, which was suspended as long as community control is not violated. He also had 13 days of jail time credit.
