A Travis County district court sentenced Hector Cuellar to two years’ deferred adjudication. The court also ordered Cuellar to pay $2,775 in restitution to Texas Mutual Insurance Company and complete 100 hours of community service.
Cuellar reported a job-related incident that caused multiple injuries while working as a sign installer in Pharr, Texas, according to the insurer. He claimed he was unable to work as a result of his injuries, and Texas Mutual began paying him income benefits.
