More Probation for LIRR Employees

 Three More Get Probation in LIRR Disability Scam:



Three more convicted disability thieves have received sentences of probation after cooperating with government prosecutors in a massive scheme involving retired Long Island Rail Road employees.


Of the 21 individuals convicted in the case so far, 13 have avoided prison time by providing information and testimony against former colleagues. The latest three are Gary Supper, 59, of Glen Head; Gregory Bianchini, 60, of Key Largo, Fla., and Sharon Fallon, 59, of Merrick.


A 2011 indictment charged 33 doctors, consultants and railroad retirees with conspiring to file phony disability claims with the Railroad Retirement Board.


Fallon, a former human resources manager, claimed "unbearable" pain in half a dozen body parts when she retired in 2007. But she was later surveilled doing step aerobics at a gym. She was ordered to pay $177,490 in restitution.


Bianchini was ordered to repay $334,000, and Supper was ordered to pay back $297,000.
