Attorney General Scott Pruitt on Wednesday announced workers' compesation and insurance fraud charges against three men. 

Robert Brandon Page, 40, of Muskogee, is charged with one felony count of workers’ compensation fraud. After claiming a cart injured his shoulder, evidence allegedly shows that Page was still participating in go-kart racing, even lifting go-karts. If convicted, Page could face up to two years in prison and $1,000 in fines. 

Brent Michael Baker, 40, of Enid, is charged with one felony count of obtaining money by false pretense. Baker is alleged to have issued certificates of insurance even though he is not licensed to sell insurance in Oklahoma, and obtained more than $1900 from a single family by issuing false certificates of insurance. If convicted, Baker could face up to 10 years in prison and $5,000 in fines, as well as restitution. 

William Dennis Mitchell, 52, of Sapulpa, is charged with one felony count of false claim for insurance. Mitchell is alleged to have bought automobile insurance the day after he backed his truck into a gas meter, and he then allegedly reported the accident as having occurred after he bought the insurance policy. A report detailing the gas leak stemming from the accident contradicts Mitchell’s insurance claim. If convicted, Mitchell could face up to three years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
