Lima man pleads guilty to workers' compensation fraud
A Lima man will repay nearly $29,000 dollars to the Bureau of Workers' Compensation after he was found guilty of fraud.
Joshua Schlosser received thousands of dollars in disability payments from the state while working under four separate employers. Investigators at the BWC found that Schlosser was working two security jobs, employed as a meter reader, and served as a maintenance technician, all while collecting disability for a previous workplace injury.
Schlosser pled guilty on June 17th to one count of workers' compensation fraud. He is ordered to pay back the money received and has been placed on community control for the next five years.
Schlosser faces a full year in prison if any conditions are violated.
