SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – A former clerical employee for the Loma Linda University Medical Center was arraigned Thursday on four felony counts of Workers’ Compensation Insurance Fraud and one count of Perjury (click here to download a copy of the complaint).

On October 12, 2012, 44-year-old Tameca Lavonne Tyler-Willie of San Bernardino filed a workers’ compensation insurance claim for an injury at work.

According to Senior Investigator Jose Guzman, who is assigned to the case, Tyler-Willie was untruthful about the manner in which she was injured and as to the extent of those injuries, in both written and oral statements made in support of the claim, and to her physicians, and at a deposition under oath.

Tyler-Willie is accused of attempting to defraud Loma Linda University Medical Center.

“As a result of these lies, Ms. Tyler-Willie received workers’ compensation insurance benefits that that she was not entitled to receive,” Guzman said.

Tyler-Willie pleaded not guilty to all counts. If convicted, she faces 8 years and 8 months in County Prison and a fine of up to $150,000. A Disposition/Reset Hearing has been set for Jan. 16, 2015. This case is being prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney David Simon.
