Fayetteville woman pleads guilty to fraud

Posted: Updated:
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -

A U.S. Post Office employee from Fayetteville has pleaded guilty to workers compensation fraud after she was seen spinning the Big Wheel on the television show "The Price is Right" even though she had said she could not deliver the mail.

The Fayetteville Observer reported that Cathy Wrench Cashwell pleaded guilty earlier this week before a U.S. Magistrate in Greenville. She will be sentenced later.

Cashwell had filed for continued pay after she said she suffered right shoulder, arm and neck pain as she was loading mail trays into her work vehicle in 2004.

Cashwell said she could not reach, climb or grasp, among other physical problems.

But she appeared on the game show Sept. 23, 2009, where she spun the wheel twice.

Prosecutors also cited three other examples.
