Eduardo Ruiz Rocha and Noemi Rocha Quirino, a married couple from San Diego County, were sentenced to a year in jail after pleading guilty to one felony count each of workers’ compensation fraud, conspiracy and grand theft. They also were ordered to pay more than $48,000 in restitution to Liberty Mutual Insurance and Republic Indemnity Company of America, according to the California Department of Insurance. On May 5, 1996, while working for Aircraft Service International, Mr. Rocha was sprayed with jet fuel as he was trying to stop a fuel leak from a truck. On June 3, 1996, a radiator hose ruptured and sprayed him with scalding water. When Mr. Rocha jumped away from the spray, he landed poorly and fractured his ankle and suffered burns to 10 percent of his body. Over the next several years, his condition allegedly worsened physically, mentally and emotionally to the point where he allegedly could no longer care for himself.
