The Clinton County (New York) District Attorney’s office recently announced an arrest associated with workers compensation and insurance fraud.
Robert Deyo, 34, of Plattsburgh was arrested and arraigned in Plattsburgh City Court before the Honorable Penelope Clute and charged with one count of Perjury in the First Degree and one count of Committing a Fraudulent Practice. (WCxKit)
The charges stem from allegations that Deyo was receiving workers comp benefits he was not entitled to by continuing to work as a contractor, and not reporting that fact to his employer or the insurance carrier.
“Workers compensation fraud takes hard-earned money from honest businesses, workers and consumers alike,” said New York State Insurance Fund Chief Executive Deputy Director Dennis Hayes. “Through the assistance of local law enforcement and cooperation with our partner agencies, NYSIF has and will continue to aggressively fight workers compensation fraud.”
Deyo was remanded to the Clinton County Jail in lieu of $2,000 bail – $4,000 bond.
