A Pinedale woman has been convicted of workers' compensation fraud.


A Sublette County detective had been investigating Delaine Davis on suspicion of embezzling from her employer when she indicated that she was also receiving workers comp.


The Department’s Investigations Manager Brian Jacobsen says worker’s comp provides money for people who are injured on the job and therefore can’t work.
