A Pennsylvania man will spend time in prison now that a jury has convicted him of workers’ comp fraud. When he was arrested working as an auto mechanic, his uniform was covered in grease.
David Good of Lancaster, PA, will spend 2 to 23 months in prison followed by two years probation for three felony charges.
A judge also ordered Good to pay back $4,800 for six months of benefits he received in 2009 while working at a garage.
He’s also no longer eligible for workers’ comp benefits.
His comp benefits started in 2003 when he injured his back at his previous employer, Burnham Holdings. This ruling doesn’t affect the $80,000 in benefits be collected from 2003 up to 2009.
After Burnham and police received a tip that Good was working while he was collecting comp benefits, police began an investigation.
Police observed Good carrying propane cylinders and a car bumper while working at the garage.
