A former little falls man pleaded guilty to stealing workers' compensation benefits.

The state inspector general says 47-year-old Charles Brownell reported to medical examiners that he wasn't working and couldn't drive long distances, while he was working as a long haul truck driver for a Little Falls business.

Brownell pleaded guilty to fifth-degree insurance fraud, received a one-year conditional discharge, and has paid nearly $21,000 in restitution.
