Rocky Hill, CT (CompNewsNetwork) - A former state Department of Transportation (DOT) employee was charged today with Workers' Compensation Fraud for allegedly working as a landscaper while collecting disability benefits from the state.

CLINT J. VERDONE, age 33, of Hebron, was charged with Fraudulent Claim or Receipt of Benefits, a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

According to the arrest warrant affidavit, Mr. Verdone collected more than $12,000 in disability benefits as a result of a work-related injury he supposedly suffered on September 22, 2009, while employed by the DOT.
