Charges Dropped in $122,000 Fraud


CC: s.380(1)(a) – Fraud over $5000; WCA: s.152(1) – Providing False or Misleading Information


My client was accused of providing false information to the Worker’s Compensation Board regarding her inability to work, following an historical event, which occurred at her workplace. WCB was seeking compensation in the amount of nearly $122,000.


This matter was destined for a judge and jury trial. On the eve of a week-long Preliminary Inquiry, the Crown stayed all charges (withdrawn). No compensation required. No criminal convictions.
