Wayne County woman ordered to repay $5K in workers’ comp benefits

Marla Queen, of Smithville (Wayne County), pleaded guilty and was sentenced May 5 in Franklin County Court of Common Pleas on one count of workers’ compensation fraud, a first-degree misdemeanor.

BWC received an allegation that Queen was working while receiving temporary total disability benefits. Claimants are not permitted to work while receiving this type of benefit. Investigators confirmed that Queen worked while receiving $5,039.18 in benefits she was not entitled to receive due to her employment.

Queen was ordered to pay full restitution to BWC. She was also sentenced to serve seven days in jail, which was suspended. Queen was also ordered to two years of community control.
