Jefferson County man ordered to repay $3K in restitution

Allen Taylor, of Wintersville (Jefferson County), pleaded guilty March 23 in Franklin County Court of Common Pleas to one count of workers’ compensation fraud, a first-degree misdemeanor.

An anonymous tip was received that Taylor filed a false claim, and that he was injured and treated at a clinic in Florida months before the alleged date of injury he reported to BWC. Investigators obtained records from the Florida clinic, and found that Taylor was treated and diagnosed with an injury in July 2012 – before filing a claim for the same injury with BWC in December 2012. It was found that Taylor deceived his physician in Ohio by not disclosing his previous diagnosis, and that led to BWC paying $3,598.94 in medical bills.

Taylor was sentenced to pay $3,598.94 to BWC by April 23, and to pay court costs by July 23.
