faking an ankle injury to collect workers' compensation payments, authorities
Modupe Adunni Martin, 29, was
sentenced to nine months in jail on Thursday in San Mateo County
after pleading no contest in October to felony workers compensation fraud.

her boyfriend at a public park, where she took part in a sex act that doctors
