An eastern Pennsylvania man who filed more than 30 lawsuits claiming to be severely injured is heading to prison for perjury after he was found doing maintenance on his house.
Sixty-year-old James George Douris was sentenced to one to 23 months behind bars on Monday in Bucks County.
Douris pleaded guilty in October to perjury stemming from a court proceeding. Authorities say he claimed he couldn't walk or hold a glass of water and hadn't been served with court papers because he couldn't pick up papers left at his door.
But investigators eventually caught him using a power saw and ladder. Surveillance footage displayed by prosecutors shows Douris raking his lawn, dumping debris and pulling a hand cart as he does yard work.
