California Appeals Court Affirms Man’s Conviction For Workers’ Compensation Fraud

(May 16, 2016, 12:10 PM EDT) -- SAN DIEGO — A California appellate panel on May 12 ruled that a trial court judge did not err when denying a man’s request to reduce his convictions for making false statements in connection with a workers’ compensation claim from felonies to misdemeanors, holding that the defendant had a prior history of criminal activity and that he did not show remorse for what he did (People v. Chany Lopez, No. D068570, Calif. App., 4th Dist., Div. 1; 2016 Calif. App. Unpub. LEXIS 3510).
