A Dayton (Montgomery County) man was ordered to repay more than $60,000 to the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) for working while receiving workers’ comp benefits. Elvin Hamilton pleaded guilty Nov. 22 to one count of workers’ compensation fraud, a fifth-degree felony.
“Mr. Hamilton took pictures for companies, athletic organizations, government entities and private individuals while receiving temporary total benefits — and that’s not permitted,” said BWC Administrator/CEO Steve Buehrer.
