Ohio Man Sentenced in Workers’ Comp Fraud Case

January 17, 2005

The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) announced a Sandusky man has been sentenced for a felony charge of workers’ compensation fraud.

Bradley Horning was sentenced to five years probation, court costs and restitution in the amount of $7,311.73 to BWC.

BWC’s special investigations unit (SIU) learned of possible fraud by Horning from an anonymous source who called BWC. The investigation reportedly confirmed Horning was self-employed while receiving workers’ comp benefits. He was operating a service to haul trash and heavy objects to garbage facilities.

Horning suffered injuries to his right knee and leg in June 1997 while working for CWE Haslage Trucking Inc. BWC awarded Horning temporary total disability benefits for his injuries.
