Texas Man Sentenced for Workers’ Compensation Fraud

June 11, 2009

Texas Mutual Insurance Company reported that a Travis County district court has sentenced Denniss A. Aguilar of Mt. Pleasant, Texas, on workers’ compensation fraud-related charges.

The workers’ compensation insurer said Aguilar reported a job-related injury while working as a truck driver for Welder’s Equipment Inc. of Pasadena, Texas. He claimed he was unable to work as a result of the injury, and Texas Mutual began paying him income benefits.

Meanwhile, Texas Mutual uncovered evidence that Aguilar worked for four different employers while receiving income benefits.

The court sentenced Aguilar to four years’ probation and 40 hours of community service. It also ordered Aguilar to repay $16,676 to Texas Mutual.
