Kentucky Woman Sentenced In Workers' Compensation Case
Frankfort, KY (CompNewsNetwork) - A Floyd County woman pleaded guilty to a
misdemeanor insurance fraud charge after lying about her husband’s employment history
during a workers’ compensation hearing.
During the August 2006
hearing, Ronda Hall, 34, of Prestonsburg, falsely testified that her husband, Rocky Hall,
had not worked since Jan. 22, 2006. Court documents show that he was employed by a sign
company during that time. This testimony would have resulted in her husband receiving
an additional $995 in benefits to which he was not entitled.
Ronda Hall was sentenced to 12 months in jail, probated under supervision, and was
ordered to pay a fine of $1,000 ($500 suspended) to the Kentucky Office of Insurance (KOI)
Fraud Investigation Division for expenses.
In November 2007, Rocky Hall
pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor insurance fraud charge in the same case. He received a
12-month probated sentence and was ordered to pay the KOI Fraud Division $1,000 ($500
suspended) for investigative expenses.
The Office of
Insurance is an agency of the Department of Public Protection in the Environmental and
Public Protection Cabinet.
