A Pennsylvania man who has filed more than 30 lawsuits claiming to be severely disabled has pleaded guilty to felony perjury after prosecutors say he was found doing maintenance on his house.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports 60-year-old James George Douris entered the plea Wednesday in Bucks County.
The charge stemmed from a court proceeding last year. Prosecutors said Douris told a judge he wasn’t able to walk or hold a glass of water, and he hadn’t been properly served with court papers because he couldn’t pick up papers left at his door.
Investigators caught Douris using a power saw and ladder on his property.
The Newtown man lost a 2010 Commonwealth Court decision after trying to qualify his dog as a household member for the purposes of getting food stamps.
