Ga. Woman Sentenced in Ohio Comp Fraud Case

February 2, 2005

The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) announced a Decatur, Georgia woman has been sentenced for a felony charge of workers’ compensation fraud.

Mozelle Berry was sentenced to one year probation and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $947.90 to BWC. Berry paid the full restitution during the court hearing.

BWC’s special investigations unit (SIU) learned of possible fraud when an injured worker named Homer Ragland died, yet his workers’ comp checks were still being cashed.

The investigation reportedly confirmed Berry, Ragland’s niece, was illegally cashing his workers’ comp checks.
