IZ+5 Sloat Roacl, at the olcl Sloat Mill (~o) ~-76~+ I1 LImas insurance Ann Powers Staff Writer Robert Frank was ordered to pay restitution and be on probation for two years as a result of his no-contest plea on insurance fraud charges filed against him in Placer County Superior Court. On Feb. 24, the Eastern Plumas Rural Fire Protection District chief pleaded no contest to a single misdemeanor at a hearing on the workers' compensation lawsuit. Deputy District Attorney Janelle Crandell had initially filed three felonies against Frank for alleged false claims that he suffered a back injury while repairing a Portola city vehicle in 2012. Those felonies were dropped and a hearing to determine restitution is set for April 22. Previous restitution estimates totaled more than $20,000, according to court documents. Frank's lawyer, Leigh Fleming, said her client decided to enter a no-contest plea ar/d move on, calling the matter a "misunderstanding." "In the interest of putting all of this behind him, Mr. Frank pled no contest to a single misdemeanor charge," said Fleming. "Mr. Frank is anxious to move past this misunderstanding, so he can focus on his life, and continue to serve the community as fire chief." Fleming said once restitution is paid, Frank's probation would be terminated. CrandeU, who prosecutes workers' compensation fraud cases in Placer, Amador and Calaveras counties, f rst filed the criminal complaint in September 2014. The claim's administrator, York Risk Services Group, is located in Placer County. At York Services' request, Sacramento-based Probe Information Services conducted an investigation on Frank's assertions. In a deposition, Frank said he had difficulty standing, walking or using stairs as a result of the injury. However, Probe's investigation produced six hours, 35 minutes of surveillance video showing Frank easily climbing in and out of a large monster truck, maneuvering the vehicle and removing its tires. Medical officials reviewing the footage indicated it would be highly unlikely for Frank to perform that kind of strenuous activity if he had been truthful about his ailments and limited mobility. Doctors also said Frank may not have received treatment or maintained a disability status if he had been accurate with physicians.
