A Florida postal worker was out on WC for a back injury. According to Yahoo! News, she was therefore relieved of carrying a mail sack and put on light duty.
The worker had been participating in long-distance competitions for some time. However, her name, finish times, and photos continued to appear on social media sites for a triathlon and races—including for the Boston Marathon—after the back injury. In fact, her times had improved!
A U.S. district court gave her some time—jail time. She was convicted of making a false statement with regard to her injury and faces up to 15 years in prison.
