Two Texas Mutual Claimants Sentenced for Work Comp Fraud

April 22, 2010

Texas Mutual Insurance Company reported that Travis County district courts have sentenced two claimants, in separate cases, on workers’ compensation fraud-related charges.

Allen Brown of Cedar Hill was sentenced to serve five years’ probation, perform 200 hours of community service and repay $2,701 to Texas Mutual.

Wallace Sorrells of Giddings was sentenced to 60 days in the county jail.

Brown and Sorrells reported job-related injuries while working for Texas Mutual policyholders.

Brown was an electrician for P1 Resources LLC of Dallas, and Sorrells was a driver for Brumley Professional Employer Services of Bulverde.

Texas Mutual began paying benefits but investigators subsequently uncovered evidence that both Brown and Sorrells were working while collecting benefits.
