Mobile Man Sentenced For Filing Fraudulent GCCF Claims

January 13, 2014

United States Attorney Kenyen R. Brown of the Southern District of Alabama announced that on January 10, 2014, Bradley Tolbert was sentenced to 5 years of Probation by Chief Judge William H. Steele on his conviction of filing a false claim with GCCF.  The defendant was ordered to pay full restitution.

The indictment alleged that the defendant filed a claim for and received payment asserting that he lost wages from work he performed at the Alabama State Docks due to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.  In fact, the defendant did not experience any loss of wages due to the oil spill.

The case was investigated by the FBI. The case is being prosecuted by AUSA Vicki Davis.
