A former city of Amsterdam employee has pleaded guilty to scamming the workers' compensation system.
The state inspector general says 51-year-old William Forte was working for the city when he claimed he wasn't working at all. He’s also seen using an arm he claimed to have injured.
In all, Forte stole more than $15,000 in benefits he was not entitled too.
