Stripper Faces Trial Over Workers' Comp

Quakertown woman worked the pole and the system, prosecutors say

A Quakertown woman accused of illegally accepting workers' compensation payments while working as a stripper will face trial next month.

Forty-three-year-old Christina Gamble of Braxton Court waived a preliminary hearing scheduled for Tuesday.

Prosecutors say Gamble claimed she hurt her back when she slipped and fell while working as a waitress at a Red Robin in November of 2007.

Gamble said she couldn't work because her injury prevented her from standing and changing positions. A judge granted her $360 per week in benefits in October 2008.

But private investigators working for the restaurant chain's insurance company say they taped her dancing at C.R. Fanny's Gentlemen's Club and Sports Bar in December.

Gamble collected a total of $22,727 in disability benefits and $4,118 in medical expenses, reports the Morning Call.

She is charged with two counts of workers' compensation fraud and one count of theft. Her trial date is September 9.

Gamble could get seven years in prison and a $15,000 fine for each count if convicted.
