September 17, 2010

A supposedly injured New York woman caught bragging on Facebook about her salary and job has pleaded guilty of stealing nearly $9,000 in undeserved worker’s comp benefits and sentenced to three years probation for fraud, authorities said.

Alexis Muniz, of Accord, was sentenced this week. She was accused of lying at a Workers’ Compensation Board hearing when she testified that she was not working in any capacity while collecting benefits. She had been receiving the benefits for a job-related injury while working for a previous employer.
