Child Molester Wins $3 Million In Florida Lottery

Timothy Poole, convicted sex offender, won $3 million on a Florida Lottery scratch-off ticket.

The sex predator purchased his $20 Super Millions ticket at a 7-Eleven, and he gets to keep it all. The state of Florida doesn’t have a law in place to prevent people with criminal records to become lottery winners.

After posing for a picture with a fake $3 million check, Poole claimed his winnings from the Florida Lottery in a one-time lump-sum payment of $2,219,807.90.

Poole was arrested in 1999 for allegedly sexually battering a 9-year-old boy. Then in 2001, Poole was arrested on charges of sexual battery on a victim under 12.

But those weren’t the millionaire’s only run-ins with the law. Poole has been arrested a total of 12 times, serving three months in prison in 1996 and also time from 2003 to 2006.
