Former fire fighter, and former Iron Man triathlete, 34 year old Perry Adam Lieber, who lives Santa Barbara, was ordered to pay $198,025 in victim restitution and $30,000 in criminal fines. Victim agencies, the County of Ventura and the Ventura County Fire Department, sustained extensive losses as a result of workers’ compensation fraud committed by Lieber.
In March 2020, Lieber resigned from his position with the Ventura County Fire Department after working at the agency for more than three years.
On December 7, 2020, Lieber pled guilty to making false material statements to obtain disability benefits he was not entitled to during a workers’ compensation claim while employed with the Ventura County Fire Department.
Additionally, the court ruled that multiple financial accounts controlled by Lieber, that were previously frozen by the court, are to be liquidated to satisfy the order in full.
Over $228,000 of his financial assets will be liquidated as a result of this order.
Lieber will also serve 90 days in jail and complete 24 months of felony probation as a condition of his guilty plea.
A hearing relating to the final payment of restitution and fines is scheduled for April 29, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. in courtroom 26 of the Ventura County Superior Court.
According to a March 2021 press release, he is currently a health and fitness expert and entrepreneur in Santa Barbara, California.
He graduated from the University of California, where he earned a Bachelor’s in English and a minor in Sports Science and Nutrition. He also participated in his first Ironman competition, an endurance multisport event that involves swimming, cycling, and running over various distances.
Lieber opened his very own elite training facility called The Workplace, where he provides one-on-one training to a range of clients, including celebrities, professional athletes, and top executives.
