Texas Man Convicted of Workers’ Compensation Fraud

November 23, 2011

A Travis County court sentenced Robert Rosette on workers’ compensation fraud-related charges, according to Texas Mutual Insurance Company.

Rosette reported a job-related injury while working as a delivery driver and warehouseman for Affordable Rent-to-Own, LLC in Beaumont, Texas. He claimed he was unable to work as a result of the injury, and Texas Mutual began paying income benefits to him.

Meanwhile, Texas Mutual uncovered evidence that Rosette was working as a loss prevention officer for another employer while receiving income benefits.

The court sentenced Rosette to two years’ deferred adjudication, and ordered him to pay $1,597 in restitution and complete 60 hours of community service.
