10/22/2018

 

On October 5th, 2018, the Special Investigative Unit of RJN Investigations, Inc. was formally notified by the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office regarding the successful prosecution in the case of the People Vs. Alcantar. In this particular case, the claimant was employed by Robertson’s Ready Mix as a truck driver. The claimant allegedly sustained a left ankle sprain when he was climbing down a ladder and stepped on a large rock. Due to the fact that the claimant’s complaints remained subjective and he complained of no improvement in his symptoms, a surveillance investigation was initiated. During surveillance, the claimant was observed traveling to Knott’s Berry Farm where he was seen standing, walking without the assistance of any ambulatory devises as well as riding on various rides. A deposition was completed where the claimant was noted to making multiple misrepresentations under the penalty of perjury. In compliance with the regulations set forth by the California Department of Insurance, the case was then referred by the RJN SIU to the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office as well as the California Department of Insurance Fraud Division. Upon completion of a detailed criminal investigation by the District Attorney, an arrest warrant was formally issued for the claimant. The claimant was arrested while at work in front of other coworkers and taken away in hand cuffs. On October 5th, the claimant plead guilty to count one IC 1871.4 (Filing a false work comp claim) The claimant is scheduled to be sentenced on November 16th, 2018 at which time a restitution figure will be determined.
