Marion man ordered to pay $6K in workers’ comp restitution

Samuel Jarrell, of Marion (Marion County), pleaded guilty Nov. 12 in Franklin County Court of Common Pleas to one count of workers’ compensation fraud, a first-degree misdemeanor.

BWC received an allegation that Jarrell was working while receiving temporary total disability benefits. Injured workers are not permitted to work while receiving this type of benefit.

Investigators reviewed bank records and conducted both interviews and surveillance to prove that Jarrell was working at his family truck and auto repair business while receiving temporary total disability. Jarrell was ordered to pay $6,136 in restitution, and was also sentenced to 90 days of incarceration, which was suspended for a year of community control. Terms of his community control include paying the restitution.
