MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – Derrick Williams, 50, of Mount Vernon was charged with first-degree offering a false instrument for filing, a Class E felony, on Wednesday according to state police.
The arrest stems from a complaint received from the New York State Workers' Compensation Board Fraud Inspector’s Office, which indicated Williams unlawfully presented fraudulent insurance documentation, according to state police. Williams, a sub-contractor, presented altered documentation fraudulently indicating he had valid workers’ compensation insurance when in fact there was no insurance coverage, according to police.
Williams was issued an appearance ticket ordering him to appear Monday in the City of Mount Vernon Court.
