Press Release

Felony Arrest Warrant Issued for Service Worker

4/30/2018

 On April 9th, 2018 the Special Investigative Unit of RJN Investigations, Inc. was formally notified by the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office as to issuance of an arrest warrant for the claimant based upon the submission of a documented referral. In this particular case, the claimant was employed as a Service Worker for the Permanente Medical Group and alleged to have sustained an injury to her arm/forearm, neck and upper extremities due to repetitive movements. Based on the subjective complaints the claimant alleged during medical examinations which included the inability to dress herself, or lift her arms, she was prescribed with wrist braces and advised to wear daily. Subsequently, a surveillance investigation was authorized and the claimant was observed utilizing her wrist braces inconsistently as well as being able to complete daily activities with no signs of hesitation or discomfort. Surveillance was provided to the QME. Based on his review of surveillance, he indicated that he had significant   concerns about the patients veracity based on the subrosa being in such contrast to her presentation. In compliance with the regulations set forth by the California Department of Insurance, the case was then referred by the RJN SIU to the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office as well as the California Department of Insurance Fraud Division. Upon completion of a detailed criminal investigation by the District Attorney, an arrest warrant was formally issued along with a letter of advisement for the claimant to appear. Once the claimant is formally arrested, she will be notified of her charges and scheduled to re appear for an Arraignment.
