Man Sentenced in Insurance Fraud Case

Ventura County | IN BRIEF / THOUSAND OAKS

January 25, 2002

A Thousand Oaks man has been sentenced to 120 days in jail for claiming a back injury and collecting disability benefits long after he was able to go back to work, prosecutors announced.

Fausto Garcia was convicted in December of two counts of insurance fraud for collecting disability pay for nine months, although videotapes showed him building brick steps in his backyard during that period.

Garcia must also make restitution. He was an employee of GTE when injured in 1996.
