Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt announced yesterday that three men were laid charges for workers' compensation and insurance fraud.

The first was Robert Brandon Page, 40, of Muskogee. Page was charged with one felony count of workers’ compensation fraud. Despite claiming that a carting incident injured his shoulder, evidence revealed that he was still participating in go-kart racing, and was even reported lifting the vehicles despite his supposed injury. Page faces up to two years in prison and $1,000 in fines.

Brent Michael Baker, 40, of Enid, was charged one felony count of obtaining money by false pretense. Allegedly, he issued certificates of insurance despite not being licensed to sell in Oklahoma. He also obtained over $1,900 from a single family by issuing phony certificates of insurance. If convicted, Baker could face up to 10 years in prison and $5,000 in fines.

William Dennis Mitchell, 52, of Sapulpa, was the last of the three revealed by the Attorney General. Mitchell was charged with one felony count of false claim for insurance. Purportedly, he purchased car insurance a day after he backed his truck into a gas meter. He also allegedly reported the accident as having occurred sometime after he had purchased insurance. A report detailing the gas leak following the incident contradicts with Mitchell’s claim. He faces up to three years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
