Oklahoma Attorney General Charges Man in Worker’s Comp Fraud Case

November 20, 2014

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has filed a worker’s compensation fraud charge against a Lawton man who allegedly submitted multiple timesheets to receive payment for hours he didn’t work.

Pruitt charged James Dorman Jackson with the crime. It wasn’t immediately clear whether Jackson had an attorney.

Pruitt’s office alleges that Jackson was allegedly injured while working for a Lawton business. While injured, the state claims, Jackson agreed to participate in a temporary transition employment program.

An insurance company arranged for Jackson to work weekends at the Fort Sill Military Museum. Even though Jackson only worked at the museum twice, he allegedly submitted 16 weekly time sheets – including a forged signature of the museum supervisor.

Jackson faces up to seven years in prison and a $10,000 fine if he’s found guilty.
