A Corrections Officer from New York Mills is facing fraud charges after authorities say he wrongfully collected workers compensation benefits from the State, according to information from the New York State Police.
The police noted that Frank Caporale, 43, of New York Mills was charged with first-degree offering a false instrument for filing and fraudulent practices, both felonies.
Caporale, a New York State Corrections Officer at Midstate Correctional Facility, allegedly submitted written statements that contained materially false information to the New York State Insurance Fund as part of a claim for payment.
According to State Police, the statements indicated that Caporale was not employed, when he in fact was working a second job. As a result of these filings, the defendant did wrongfully collect $10,540 in workers comp benefits from the State Insurance Fund.
Caporale was subsequently given appearance tickets returnable in the Town of Marcy Justice Court.
