A Hayward woman who was found to be faking a foot injury when investigators caught her on camera in a park performing a sex act she couldn’t have done with a bad ankle will spend nine months in jail for insurance fraud, prosecutors said.
Modupe Adunni Martin, 29, was taken into custody Thursday morning after a judge pronounced sentence, including three years on probation, said San Mateo County Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti.
Martin had been working as a custodian for the Sequoia Union High School District in February 2009 when she told her employer she had injured her ankle at work. She said she couldn’t walk and used crutches to enter 10 doctor appointments over a series of six months.
But when investigators from the district attorney’s insurance fraud unit began to check her story using hidden cameras near the doctor’s offices, she was seen leaving the doctor’s appointments on foot without crutches.
