South Georgia investigator honored by FBI

January 30, 2007

Albany -- An investigator with the State Board of Workers Compensation is honored by the F-B-I.

Joy Sanders is credited with catching a South Georgia businessman who ripped off nearly three quarters of a million dollars in worker's comp insurance.

Kerry Claybaugh pleaded guilty to mail fraud two weeks ago. Prosecutors say he opened phony businesses to defraud insurance companies. Sanders said "it just taught me so much. It was just wonderful for them to work with us the way they did. I think all law enforcement needs to work together."

 Claybaugh is still awaiting sentencing. Joy Sanders has been with the State Board for 12 years.
