Trumbull County man ordered to repay $23K for driving a taxi while collecting workers’ comp

John Melvin, of North Bloomfield (Trumbull County), pleaded guilty May 6 in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas to one count of theft, a fifth-degree felony.

BWC received an anonymous allegation that Melvin was working as a taxi driver for the Amish community while receiving workers’ compensation benefits. Investigators conducted interviews and obtained financial records, and concluded that Melvin collected temporary total and permanent total disability benefits from BWC while working as a self-employed taxi driver.

Melvin was sentenced to eight months in prison, which was suspended for five years of community control. He was ordered to pay $23,000 in restitution to BWC as a condition of community control.
