ASPEN MAN AND GIRLFRIEND

GUILTY OF FRAUD

ASPEN TIMES MARCH 7 2002

 

An Aspen man and his former girlfriend were convicted this week of workers' compensation fraud.

Robert J. Witek and Jennifer Weber were found guilty of felonies after a whistle-blower informed the state of their attempt to turn a party accident into a workers' compensation payoff. The couple now face fines and possible prison sentences.

The story, as told by a press release from the state attorney general's office, begins with a workers' compensation claim filed by Robert Witek of RJW Builders of Aspen in May 1999. [continued below]....

..... Witek was seeking benefits for injuries sustained by Weber in a purported workplace accident.

Witek's claim said Weber was an employee of his business who was injured while delivering building blueprints when she fell off a "pickup scooter."

The claim was granted and Weber received approximately $15,000 in temporary total-disability benefits from Pinnacol Assurance (the state's workers' compensation authority). In addition, Pinnacol paid over $30,000 to medical providers for treatment of Weber's injuries.

At the time the claim was filed, however, Weber was Witek's girlfriend, not his employee.

The couple's fraud began to unravel later in 1999, when a secretary (now a former employee) for Witek informed the Colorado Division of Insurance that Weber's accident was not a business accident.

The division of insurance turned the matter over to the attorney general's office for further investigation and possible legal action.

The investigation revealed that the accident occurred during a social gathering at Witek's home in Aspen. Weber and a friend were riding a moped and crashed. Weber injured her elbow.

The whistle-blower also informed investigators that Weber was not an employee of Witek's business at the time of the accident.

Colorado Attorney General Ken Salazar's office filed criminal charges in Arapahoe County District Court in May 2000, but the case did not make its way to trial until last month. The charges were filed in Arapahoe County because that is where the headquarters of Pinnacol Assurance is located.

Witek and Weber were each charged with one count of class-three felony theft and one count of submitting a false statement to obtain workers' compensation benefits, a class-five felony.

Following a week-long trial, a jury convicted Witek of theft of over $15,000 and of making a false statement in order to obtain workers' compensation benefits late Monday, according to the press release. The jury convicted Weber of making a false statement in order to obtain workers' compensation benefits.

Sentencing is scheduled for May 14. The state will be seeking a restitution order against both defendants jointly for recovery of over $45,000 paid in benefits.

Witek's class-three felony conviction for theft comes with the possibility of a four- to 12-year prison sentence. The class-five felony conviction for making false statements carries a possible prison sentence of between one and three years.

"Workers' compensation fraud rips off legitimate businesses and other Colorado taxpayers," Salazar said. "Individuals who scam the system should know that stiff criminal penalties can apply."

Steinthore Jakobsson

AUTHOR: Friends of Steinthor - (USA)

We just found this today and have always had a suspicion about Jennifer Weber who was married to a dear friend of ours (Twice) Steinthore Jakobsson. She always told a different story of how he died,  (Once she told my wife that Steinthor was down in Mexico docked at a pier and got into a beef with the police and they just shot him...............no way) leading us to believe there was some insurance fraud of some kind involving a cop she was in business with and Steinthor's stange death. Then the deal with the Workman's Comp scam was really strange. She kind of disappeared from Aspen after that because of the adverse publicity especially from the old locals after being convicted of that felony. Fair warning........beware.

RIP Steinthore. We love you.

 Vagneur: Our Aspen family of skiers

The joys of life come our way when we least expect them, and sometimes in shots so small we have to relive the experience to make sure they were real.

Standing around at the top of the mountain a couple of weeks ago, after watching my daughter kill the big uphill race, a younger man approached me and pointed at my Aspen Mountain Ski Patrol pin, wanting affirmation that I was on the patrol. “No longer,” I replied, “I’m alumni.”

“My father was alumni, also,” he said, and fessed up, when asked, that his dad was Pete Seibert of Colorado skiing fame. Seibert’s, off the backside of Bell on Aspen Mountain, is a great black-diamond mogul run and one of the originals, named after a person instead of a mining claim. As we shook hands, I was humbled with the realization that two families, going back to the very beginning of skiing in Aspen, found each other through nothing more than a small ski pin on the front of my parka. And as you think about it, you realize it was Pete and Earl “Squirrel” Eaton, another Aspen patrol alumni, who in 1957 explored what is now Vail Mountain and decided it would make an excellent ski area.

Any given bucket on the gondola on any given day can be a glimpse into the convoluted world of anthropology, and never was there an exception this winter. Cellphones are the new opiate of the masses, stifling conversation with friends and strangers alike, even worse than those music-carrying earbuds that keep people looking straight ahead like cattle, showing blank, uncurious faces, totally unaware that we might be approaching the slaughterhouse.

The other day, I slipped into a gondola cabin occupied by three people, a young couple and an older man and was pleasantly surprised to be welcomed by all three. The older gentleman wondered why I might be interested in his accent after he’d already told me he was from Connecticut, but then he readily confessed to being from Iceland. “Where are you from?” he asked, not willing to let me get ahead of him in the conversation. “Mostly from here,” I replied, “but my roots are in northern Italy.”

Asking for my name, he then said, “Do you know why so many Italian immigrants are named Tony?” Well, yes of course, I knew the answer (but just for the record, when they leave Italy, officials stamp “To New York” on their foreheads). Now we were friends — two men with senses of humor and no pretensions about political correctness.

“Did you know Ulfar,” he asked. Sure, Ulfar Skaeringsson, longtime ski instructor and engineer of many Roch and World Cup races, recently deceased. An Icelandic man known for attention to detail and an affinity for getting people to work hard for him.

“Absolutely, I knew Ulfar, but to be honest, I think we spent more time drinking together than anything else,” was my reply. This year, Ulfar had a ski run named after him — look for it when you’re in the neighborhood of Corkscrew Gully. Or as Ulfar might have said, with his thick Icelandic accent, “Jesus Christ, you have to die to have something named after you?”

It was my turn now, and I posed the question, “How about Steinthor? Did you know Steinthor?”

“Oh sure,” he said, “Steinthor Jakobsson, member of the 1956 Iceland Olympic team, giant slalom specialist, who came to the U.S. shortly thereafter.” He also was a 30-year teaching pro for Aspen Skiing Co., who retired in ’94 and moved to a sailboat along the California/Mexico coast. If you wanted an opinion on something, and sometimes if you didn’t, Steinthor would give it to you, loudly and without doubt. We always joked around, calling him the “Icelandic cowboy” for his love of the West and ranching. In 1996, according to officials, Steinthor, all alone on his boat, tripped and hit his head, dying from the injury. So went the official story, but there’s some suspicion that perhaps that’s not really what happened. In the end, Skico opened the Snowmass lifts in June 1996 so friends and family could travel up the mountain for Steinthor’s memorial.

Skiing is about many things; speed, powder, finesse, good bumps, guts and fresh air, but in the end, it’s mostly about the people. The folks I’ve mentioned above are a vital part of the fabric that holds the Aspen family of skiers together.
