A former civilian employee for the Los Angeles Police Department is scheduled to be arraigned today on one felony count of insurance fraud, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Gerald Ray Pulley (12/5/66), who worked as a senior clerk typist, is expected to appear in Department 30 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center in case BA464228.

Deputy District Attorney Arunas Sodonis of the Healthcare Fraud Division said Pulley had been on temporary disability leave and was cleared to go back to work in February 2017, but he didn’t return to his job. Instead, Pulley allegedly returned to his other job working as a security guard while continuing to receive disability benefits from the police department, Sodonis said.

Pulley resigned from the LAPD in March.

The prosecutor recommended bail be set at $20,000. Pulley faces up to five years in county jail if convicted as charged.

The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department’s Special Operations Division, Workers’ Compensation Fraud Unit.
