New York Prison Guard Accused of Workers’ Comp Fraud

May 3, 2016

New York’s inspector general says a state prison guard has been charged with fraud and grand larceny, accused of stealing more than $38,000 in sick leave and workers’ compensation benefits by falsifying medical records.

Inspector General Catherine Leahy Scott says 37-year-old Giddel Feliciano, formerly of Seneca Falls, New York, asserted he couldn’t work while secretly moving to Greensboro, North Carolina, and applying for a job as a county jail guard.

Feliciano, who worked at Five Points Correctional Facility, has pleaded not guilty in Romulus Town Court.
