The Boston Globe reports that a 32-year-old former TJX employee and Massachusetts resident has pleaded guilty to charges he lied under oath and schemed to falsely collect workers’ compensation benefits. The man has since moved to Florida.
According to a press release from the attorney general’s office, he was arraigned last May and pleaded guilty in December to two counts of workers’ compensation fraud.
The defendant received a one year prison sentence along with three years probation. He was also ordered to pay nearly four thousand dollars in workers’ compensation benefits he allegedly collected but not entitled to.
