JEANNETTE, Pa. (AP) —
A Greensburg man has pleaded guilty to making false statements in a case where he staged a fake robbery while working as a post office supervisor.
Prosecutors said 51-year-old Jeffrey A. Gogets received over $8,500 in health care and workers compensation benefits after he inflicted a wound on himself in April, 2011 and falsely claimed a robbery had taken place.
Gogets’ sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 6. Officials said Gogets could face a sentence of five years in prison, a fine of $250,000, or both.
