Lawyer: Amesbury man planned to pay $445K back

Despite the company’s lack of contribution to the unemployment fund, workers formerly employed by Green Company were able to collect more than $595,000 in benefits after their separation from the business.

The prosecution of insurance fraud helps prevent the increase in premiums and taxes that are the result of fraudulent insurance claims, officials say. In 2011, Coakley’s Insurance and Unemployment Fraud Division obtained $5,578,934 in restitution orders in 33 matters.

The case against Bourassa is being handled by assistant attorneys general Jennifer Adreani and David Andrews, chief of Coakley’s Insurance and Unemployment Fraud Division, with assistance from investigators Tracey Wetterlow and Rose Bagalawis of the attorney general’s office and Richard Carney, director of revenue enforcement and audit.
