Now an ex-deputy, Nicolas Carreno, 45, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of workers’ compensation fraud. It is a third-degree felony carrying a maximum punishment of five years in prison. "The total amount paid to date on this claim, including indemnity, medical and expenses is $533,672.14," according to a complaint affidavit.
