A Los Angeles County probation officer has been arrested and charged with two counts of worker’s compensation insurance fraud after allegedly altering medical documentation, authorities said Tuesday.
Raymond Milton, who is assigned to a juvenile detention camp as a deputy probation officer, is expected to face two counts of insurance fraud for allegedly altering medical documents to dupe the county Probation Department out of more than $2,300 in sick time pay, officials said.
Milton, 41, was arrested Saturday afternoon and posted bail the next day, according to Sheriff’s Department records.
The Probation Department has been cracking down on insurance fraud and employee misconduct.
“Within the last year, the department added a Special Projects Team comprised of four supervisory level investigators,” said Senior Probation Director Jennifer Kaufman. “These investigators are specially trained to recognize the signs of workers compensation and medical fraud.”
