CONCORD — A Conway man received a suspended sentence Tuesday after pleading guilty to one count of unemployment compensation fraud, authorities announced Wednesday.
Brandon Scamman was sentenced to 90 days in jail, all suspended for one year conditioned on good behavior.
He also agreed to the use of his likeness in the Department of Employment Security benefits rights interview, which discusses the ramifications of committing unemployment fraud.
He also must pay back the $240 he received plus a 20 percent penalty of $48.
Scamman also was disqualified from receiving unemployment benefits for 52 weeks.
Scamman, who was sentenced in Conway circuit court, filed for three weeks of unemployment between March 8 and March 23, 2014, while knowingly failing to report his employment in order to obtain or increase his benefits.
