Jaime Rosario Del Real, 61, and son Israel Del Real, 37, have both pleaded guilty to four felony counts for their role in a $400,000 insurance fraud scheme denying workers’ compensation insurance and medical care for injured workers.

The father and son were sentenced to 250 days in jail, 10 years of felony probation and ordered to pay $382,951 in restitution. This case was prosecuted by the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office.
