Thomas photo Feb 2015Richard Thomas, of Toledo (Lucas County), pleaded guilty and was sentenced Feb. 11 in Franklin County Court of Common Pleas in connection with working while receiving workers’ compensation benefits.

BWC began investigating after a data cross match indicated that Thomas was possibly working while collecting BWC disability benefits. Investigators found that Thomas was working for a nonprofit organization in Toledo while receiving temporary total disability benefits in 2012. Injured workers are not permitted to work while receiving this type of benefit.

Thomas was sentenced to 90 days in jail, which was suspended, and ordered to pay $2,768.55 in restitution to BWC.
