SID received an allegation that Ralph Dollison was working while receiving compensation for a workplace injury. The investigation proved Dollison worked for a concrete company as a laborer and performed duties such as digging, building forms, pouring concrete and finishing concrete. Evidence also revealed he intentionally misrepresented and withheld his employment in order to continue collecting the disability benefits.
Dollison pleaded guilty Oct. 28 in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas to one first-degree misdemeanor count of workers’ compensation fraud. He was ordered to pay $4,081.47 in restitution and placed on community control for five years. He was also sentenced to 180 days in jail, suspended as long as he complies with the community control.
