A former postal worker in North Carolina has been sentenced to three years of probation after pleading guilty to workers’ compensation fraud.
Her problems began in 2009 when co-workers spotted her looking quite fit while competing on television’s “The Price is Right” game show. They were surprised, because in 2004 she went out on workers’ comp, claiming an arm injury prevented her from doing her job. But there she was, spinning the show’s giant roulette wheel with her allegedly injured arm. Then in 2010, co-workers heard she had gone zip-lining.
Yet in 2011, she filed a statement that “her injuries hindered her ability to bend, reach, grasp, sit, or engage in other activities.” The co-workers ratted her out.
The post office and its workers’ compensation carrier investigated and decided to challenge her benefits claim. Confronted with the investigation’s findings, she decided to take a chance on a guilty plea.
