Man pleads guilty to Social Security, Medicaid fraud

Fifty-year-old Gloucester, Massachusetts resident Paul Hebert made an appearance at the United States District Court in Burlington, Vermont on Wednesday, January 20 to plead guilty to charges of Social Security and Medicaid fraud.

Hebert, who was featured in the National Geographic reality television series “Wicked Tuna,” which was a documentary about bluefin tuna fishermen based out of Gloucester, was allegedly receiving government disability benefits during his time on the show.

Hebert conceded to paying over $53,600 in restitution.

Paul Volk, Hebert’s legal counsel, said the claims were due to injuries that Hebert incurred before joining the reality show, adding that Hebert’s only mistake was failing to update the records after accepting a position on the show.
