Mail carrier’s fraud conviction upheld by the Fifth Circuit

A U.S. postal carrier’s convictions for making false statements to obtain federal workers’ compensation benefits were upheld by the Fifth Circuit Thursday after it cited hundreds of claimed doctors’ visits claimed over a four-month period.

Lisa Coffman said she injured her back while lifting a package at work. Between November 2011 and May 2016, she submitted $48,000 in travel reimbursement claims to workers compensation for purportedly logging over 95,000 miles to visits doctors.
