Robert Aleshire of Delta (Fulton County) was sentenced in Franklin County Common Pleas Court on Jan. 13 following an investigation by BWC that found he was working while receiving workers’ compensation benefits.
BWC’s Special Investigations Intelligence Unit identified that Aleshire was involved in a Public Utilities Commission of Ohio motor vehicle inspection as a commercial truck driver while he was collecting benefits. The investigation revealed that Aleshire was driving for Whitacre Logistics as an independent contractor under the name MoMo Trucking during the same time he was receiving permanent total disability for an injury that allegedly left him permanently unable to work.
The judge placed Aleshire on community control and basic supervision for five years. As a condition of his community control, Aleshire was ordered to pay restitution of $8,903.44 and $2,000 for investigative costs, for a total of $10,903.44. The judge also ordered him to have no new convictions. If Aleshire violates the terms of his community control, he will receive a prison term of 12 months.
