MIDDLESEX COUNTY, NJ – A Randolph Township man was sentenced Monday to probation, community service, and ordered to pay restitution for the fake slip and fall he orchestrated in 2018, according to Middlesex County Acting Prosecutor Christie L. Bevacqua.
Alexander Goldinsky, 58, of Randolph, NJ, was sentenced to two years of probation and 14 hours of community service. In addition, he paid restitution in the amount of $563.48 to an insurance company at the time of sentencing, Bevacqua said.
The sentence was imposed after Goldinsky pleaded guilty on Aug. 16, 2019, in accordance with a plea agreement reached with Middlesex County Assistant Prosecutor Christine D’Elia, to third-degree insurance fraud, admitting he filed a false insurance claim for injuries he said he sustained at a business located in Woodbridge Township, Bevacqua said.
The prosecution of this insurance fraud was part of the Attorney General’s statewide insurance fraud crackdown through its County Prosecutor Insurance Fraud Reimbursement Program, Bevacqua said.
At the time of the crime, Goldinsky was an independent contractor operating under the company name All Gold Industries and was subcontracted to perform work at a company in Woodbridge, Bevacqua said.
Goldinsky was arrested and charged as a result of an investigation by Detective Sean Sullivan of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office which revealed that he purposely threw ice on the floor in the cafeteria at his workplace, placed himself on the ground, and waited until he was discovered. Thereafter, he sought medical attention claiming a head injury and he caused false claims to be submitted to the insurance company, Bevacqua said.
