DOYLESTOWN, PA: Stripper Gets Caught Dancing While on Workers’ Compensation

As I was scanning BayNews9.com for a good criminal law article to blog about, I came across the following story in their “Strange News” column:

A Pennsylvania woman is accused of illegally accepting workers’ compensation payments while working as a stripper.

Forty-three (43) year-old Christina Gamble waived a preliminary hearing scheduled for Tuesday in Pennsylvania State Court and will go to Trial next month.

Prosecutors say the Quakertown woman claimed she hurt her back at her waitressing job and couldn’t work. A judge granted her $360 per week in benefits in October 2008.

But private investigators working for the restaurant’s insurance company say they taped her dancing at C.R. Fanny’s Gentlemen’s Club and Sports Bar in Wilson later that year

Gamble is charged with two (2) counts of Workers’ Compensation Fraud and one (1) count of Theft.
