Columbus, OH – The Ohio BWC’s Special Investigations Department recently announced that on Nov 1, 2022, Frances Davis pleaded guilty to one count of attempt to commit workers’ compensation fraud, a fifth-degree felony, and pay $17,144.79 in restitution.
BWC’s Special Investigations Department (SID) opened an investigation into Davis after their Intelligence Unit identified she potentially earned wages when she was also receiving disability benefits from BWC.
The investigation confirmed Davis worked for seven different employers over the course of two years.
While collecting BWC benefits, she held positions such as manager, assistant manager, packer, and machine operator.
A Franklin County judge found Frances Davis guilty and sentenced her to pay the restitution as well as five years of community control.
