Regina loss-prevention officer sentenced over workers' comp fraud
A Regina loss-prevention officer who received workers' compensation payments he wasn't entitled to has been sentenced to six months of electronic monitoring and ordered to repay some of the money.
According to a news release from the Saskatchewan Workers' Compensation Board, the man was sentenced Wednesday in provincial court in Regina after pleading guilty last year to defrauding the board of $50,981.19.
In addition to the electronic monitoring, the man was ordered to serve a non-jail conditional sentence of 18 months, followed by three years probation.
He has also been ordered to pay back $100 a month for 60 months.
The man, whom the board didn't identify, was charged after resuming work while continuing to receive workers' compensation payments.
He pleaded guilty Sept. 29, 2008.
