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.
