California Construction Company Owner Pleads Guilty to Workers’ Comp Fraud

March 7, 2016

The owner of a Sacramento, Calif. construction company has pleaded guilty to tax evasion and workers’ comp insurance fraud.

The Sacramento Bee reported that 47-year-old William Alan Huffman entered his plea last week after being arrested in January.

The Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office says Huffman falsely reported to his workers’ compensation insurance carriers that he had no or very few employees at Capital City Construction Co. During this time he paid his employees in cash and avoided paying the California Employment Development Department and insurance premiums.
