An Ohio woman pleaded guilty to workers’ compensation fraud and attempted theft Nov. 5 in Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas. Rose Marinescu was sentenced on both charges, which are first-degree misdemeanors. This follows her 2011 conviction in Rocky River Municipal Court for failure to comply, when she was sentenced to pay $30,000 in past due workers’ compensation premiums for her business, Rainbow Child Day Care No. 1 Inc., 24329 Lorain Road in North Olmsted.
BWC’s Special Investigations Department discovered that Marinescu defaulted on her court-ordered payment plan. Agents from the department’s employer fraud team attempted to work with Marinescu to resolve the matter, but she failed to cooperate.
Marinescu was placed on two years of community control and was ordered to repay the remainder of the restitution she owed, which totals more than $25,000. She was also fined $346.50.
