LOS AN­GE­LES: Cal­i­for­nia tax of­fi­cials say an in­te­rior de­signer’s false dis­abil­ity claim was un­cov­ered when he was spot­ted on a home im­prove­ment tele­vi­sion show.

Fifty-six -year-old Ron­ald Hunt of Los An­ge­les was sen­tenced to 200 hours of com­mu­nity ser­vice and or­dered to pay more than $180 000 (nearly R1.4 mil­lion) in resti­tu­tion, un­paid taxes and fines.

He pleaded guilty to two felony counts of fraud. – Sapa-AP
