Nicholasville Kentucky Man To Pay More Than $7,000 In Restitution


Frankfort, KY (CompNewsNetwork) - John R. Webb died in 1996 but his workers' compensation payments continued to be cashed until early 2007. The Kentucky Office of Insurance discovered Webb's son John S. Webb had cashed his deceased father's workers' compensation checks. 
Webb, 44, of Nicholasville, pleaded guilty in Jessamine Circuit Court to five felony counts after cashing those checks. He originally was charged with 27 felony counts of second-degree possession of a forged instrument. Webb must make restitution of $7,369.78 to Underwriters Safety and Claims Inc.
He was sentenced to five years on each count to run concurrently. The sentence was conditionally discharged for five years if he complies with the terms of his probation. Webb was given credit for 33 days he spent in jail prior to sentencing.
The Office of Insurance is an agency of the Department of Public Protection in the Environmental and Public Protection Cabinet.
