“The Noodle” Sentenced for Fake Comp ClaimsInsurance Fraud — By Trace America on March 7, 2013 at 3:35 PM
Eating ramen, cooking spaghetti and saying the phrase “using your noodle” are a few examples of the good things you can do with noodles. Using “The Noodle” as your stage name for MMA fighting while you are out on worker’s compensation is not a good thing however.
Back in April we brought you the story of Raphael Davis, the California firefighter who was supposed to be out on workers’ comp but was instead competing in MMA fights. He pled guilty last September to insurance fraud charges.
According to prosecutors and the San Francisco Chronicle, Davis has finally been sentenced for his crimes and placed on three years probation. On March 6th, Superior court Judge David Horwitz went against prosecutor’s objections and reduced Davis’ conviction from a felony to a misdemeanor before sentencing him.
The district attorney’s office says Davis, 36, has also already paid $30,000 in restitution and completed 200 hours of community service. Hopefully he learned from the mistake.
