Laredo Man Must Serve Jail Time, Repay Benefits to Texas Mutual

February 9, 2010

A Travis County district court has sentenced a Laredo, Texas, man on workers’ compensation fraud-related charges, Texas Mutual Insurance Company reported.

The court ordered Jose Perez to serve 60 days in jail and repay $7,388 in benefits to Texas Mutual.

Texas Mutual said Perez reported a job-related injury while working in the shipping and receiving department of a Brumley Professional Employer Services client company. Perez claimed he was unable to work as a result of the injury, and the workers’s comp insurer began paying income benefits to him.

Texas Mutual subsequently uncovered evidence that Perez was working at a distribution center in Laredo, the company said.
