Blacklick woman ordered to repay $8K in workers’ comp restitution

Memunatu Sheriff, of Blacklick (Franklin County), pleaded guilty and was sentenced May 19 in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas on one count of attempted workers’ compensation fraud, a first-degree misdemeanor.

SID’s intelligence unit found that Sheriff earned wages from two employers while receiving temporary total disability benefits, a type of benefit reserved for claimants that cannot work while recovering from a workplace injury. The findings stemmed from a database cross match query from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. Investigators found that Sheriff worked for approximately seven months while receiving temporary total disability benefits.

Sheriff was ordered to pay $8,891 in restitution to BWC by Aug. 3. She paid the full restitution amount before entering her plea.
