State Charges Newington Man Collected Unemployment Comp From Jail

HARTFORD (CBS Connecticut) — State prosecutors say a Newington man collected more than $6,800 in unemployment benefits while he was in jail.  They say 36-year-old Richard Hoegemann was incarcerated for violation of probation between February and June of last year,  but collected $6,834 in unemployment benefits during that time.

The Chief State’s Attorney’s Office Unemployment Compensation Fraud Unit points out that in order to collect workers’ comp, a claimant must be available for work.

Hoegemann is charged with first degree larceny, conspiracy to commit larceny and unemployment compensation fraud.
