SID opened an investigation after receiving an allegation that Morrow was operating his own HVAC business while receiving disability benefits from the BWC.
The investigation, which included a review of bank records and multiple interviews, confirmed Morrow did own and operate a business, TTM Mechanical, and conducted HVAC installations and repairs during the time he was receiving benefits. The evidence obtained during the course of the investigation also revealed that he intentionally misrepresented and withheld his employment from BWC.
Morrow was sentenced to 30 days in the Franklin County Jail, suspended, and he was placed on six months of probation. He was also ordered to pay court costs along with $8,399.74 in restitution to BWC. The restitution was paid at the clerk’s office after the hearing.
