(PAOLI) - A French Lick man plead guilty to unemployment insurance fraud in Orange County Circuit Court.

Officials say 36-year-old Timothy W. Denton knowingly defrauded the system by collecting unemployment insurance benefits while working full-time.

Through the use of agency records, an Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) employee began an investigation and determined that Denton was working and receiving wages while claiming unemployment insurance benefits.

Denton was sentenced to nearly two years of probation and ordered to repay DWD $50,589.71 for the benefits he fraudulently collected.

DWD receives wage reports and new hire data from Hoosier employers documenting who is employed and receiving compensation. The agency uses this information to ensure people are not collecting unemployment insurance benefits while working.

You can also help combat unemployment insurance fraud and abuse by reporting it online at www.in.gov/dwd/fraud. Your efforts will help ensure tax dollars are spent wisely and unemployment insurance benefits are only paid to people who are eligible to receive them. You do not need to provide your name or any other identifying information in order to file a complaint in regards to unemployment insurance fraud.
