Columbus, OH – Mary Martin of Columbus (Franklin County) pleaded guilty Oct. 24 to one count of workers’ compensation fraud after BWC investigators learned she deceived several physicians in order to receive dangerous drugs.
SID’s Intelligence Unit found Martin had received narcotic prescriptions from multiple physicians during overlapping periods. The investigation that followed revealed she was deceiving several physicians and that she filled those prescriptions at multiple pharmacies as a way to conceal her drug-seeking behavior.
Mary Martin was sentenced in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas to four years of community control, under the conditions that she pay court costs and restitution in the amount of $3,473.65, and obtain no new convictions.
