Ohio Woman Caught in Workers’ Comp Fraud

January 18, 2005

The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) announced a Delaware County woman has been sentenced for a misdemeanor charge of workers’ compensation fraud.

Camille Smith was sentenced to pay court costs. Additionally, Smith paid BWC $6,585.20 in restitution prior to her court date.

BWC’s special investigations unit (SIU) learned of possible fraud by Smith when her employer notified the agency. The investigation reportedly confirmed Smith was working while receiving workers’ comp benefits. She worked as administrative support staff for Connolly, O’Brock and Associates.

Smith suffered injuries to her neck in May 2002 while working for the Ohio Department of Transportation. BWC awarded Smith temporary total disability benefits for her injuries.
