Woman who brought phony injury claim gets jail time for fraud and perjury

The Richmond paper reports here ("Woman who sued sent to jail," 11/6/04): "A woman who sued on a claim that her arm was paralyzed - until the other side produced video of her lifting grocery bags and hanging laundry - is serving four months in jail after pleading guilty to fraud and perjury charges."

In her civil case, the woman was ordered to pay $27,000 in fees to the defendant after surveillance videos showed her claim of partial paralysis was false.
