Fired Palm Beach firefighter Jeremy DeRosa will face a six-person jury today when both sides give opening statements in his fraud trial. Three men and three women were chosen Monday. A seventh person — a man — was picked as the alternate.
DeRosa, a firefighter/paramedic, was charged with workers’ compensation fraud in December 2013. Two months later, Public Safety Director Kirk Blouin fired the 5-year town employee. State officials allege DeRosa misrepresented the extent of an injury while out of work and collecting his full pay under workers’ compensation.
