BOWLING GREEN The former owner of Mr. Beefy s American Roadhouse in Perrysburg pleaded guilty yesterday to two felony counts of worker s compensation fraud.
Christopher Frick, 41, of Perrysburg was placed on community control for four years by Wood County Common Pleas Judge Robert Pollex, who also ordered Frick to pay a yet-to-be-determined amount of restitution.
Frick admitted he failed to pay for worker s compensation coverage at his business between July 1, 2006, and Dec. 31, 2006, and between Jan. 1, 2007, and June 30, 2007.
His period of probation is to be served concurrently with a 17-month prison sentence Frick is serving for failing to remit state sales taxes, also a felony. Frick was ordered at sentencing last month to pay the state $87,000 for his restaurant s back taxes.
