[quote]At the Florida Lottery headquarters, Timothy Poole, 43, posed for a photo with an oversized check after claiming his $3 million Scratch-Off prize. But when the image hit the Internet, others recognized the 450-pound man as a registered sexual predator. In 2001, the Orange County Sheriff's Office arrested Poole on charges of sexual battery on a victim under 12, records show. Before that, he was arrested in 1991 for stealing almost $20,000 in food stamps from Safeco Inc. of Ocala, where he worked as a guard. This week, Poole claimed his winnings from the Florida Lottery in a one-time lump-sum payment of $2,219,807.90. He played the Super Millions scratch-off game which costs $20 a ticket. The game offers 12 top prizes of $3 million and, with Poole's winner, five remain, spokeswoman Keri Gero said. In all, Poole has been arrested 12 times in Florida on charges ranging from grand theft to forging a check, records show. Poole served three months in prison in 1996 and did a second stint from 2003 to 2006, according to the Florida Department of Corrections.[/quote] Source: [URL]http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/breaking-news/os-sex-predator-lottery-winner-millions-20141210-story.html[/URL]
So they're basically witch hunting the guy for no reason other than he won they lottery and he's a sexual predator.
Yep, it's Florida.
Chalk this one up to another proof for the atheists and their theory. :v:
-sNip-
Ok and? Are these people not allowed to play the lotto anymore? He did his time in the system and is following the rules since then. How the hell is this news. [quote]In Florida, there are no laws that prohibit registered sexual predators from playing the numbers and collecting winnings. The Florida Lottery cannot withhold earnings based on someone's criminal record.[/quote]
he won it fair and square, this isn't news

[QUOTE=DrTaxi;46688575]Uhh, what?[/QUOTE] Probably something along the lines of: "In what world where a god exists, would he allow such people to prosper." Kind of thing.
people are fuckin dumb. leave him be, these batman wannabes are helping no one.
He'll fly to Thailand and blow it all in six months getting high and paying to screw 12-year-olds or something.
[QUOTE=deadoon;46688585]Probably something along the lines of: "In what world where a god exists, would he allow such people to prosper." Kind of thing.[/QUOTE] Actually, I was making a reference to a humorous line from Frasier, from the episode Roz's Turn. [QUOTE][B]Frasier:[/B] Oh please, that homily-spouting Hausfrau? It's the most embarrassing thing on the air. So, she finally got canned, eh? [B] Roz: [/B]No, she got a million-dollar TV deal. [B]Frasier:[/B] [[I]chokes on his sherry[/I], then:] Well, good news for Gertie and for the many atheists who will welcome this new proof of their theory. [/QUOTE]
It's like they think he'll use this money to buy a child slave on the black market. Now he's pretty much got no choice but to spend it on creating a new identity for himself to protect himself from the pitchfork wielding reactionists.
I'm reminded of [I]My Name Is Earl[/I].
He is a disgusting individual but he still has all the right in the world to play and win the lottery.
[QUOTE=snookypookums;46688611]Actually, I was making a reference to a humorous line from Frasier, from the episode Roz's Turn.[/QUOTE] You sir are quick witted and I enjoy your taste in TV shows... even though I don't watch many.

[QUOTE=Apollo;46689033]"They're hating on him for no reason other than he diddled a little kid" I don't condone or condemn this but jeez.[/QUOTE] The point he's making is that they didn't seem to care as much before, but now that he's won the lottery they suddenly seem to care. I don't think you read his reply right.
he hasn't offended in like 13 years wtf lol
Leave the guy alone.
I didn't know sex offender is exclusive to pedophiles?
that's a solid kick in the nuts to karma, good on him!
Well, you can either be disgusted at the man for fiddling kids, or you can be all forgiving and say people need to leave him alone. Honestly, I think the guy is a sick fuck and could care less about how much the news reports about him. One thing is for sure, no one is going to celebrate for the man over his lottery earnings.
Wow, think of all the kids he could buy.

[QUOTE=EcksDee;46690245]Pfff, idiot. You lose more to taxes if you take lump.[/QUOTE] it's not that simple if you win a very large amount and invest the lump sum and get an annual return of 3-4% (not impossible at all) you'll have more than the entire annuity in the 30 years or however long they take to pay you
I find this as an ok thing. Next time he gets caught diddling someone, that special someone is getting a very big paycheck.' Hell, we'll have kids looking for this dude trying to lure him in to get the big bucks.

[QUOTE=EcksDee;46690245]Pfff, idiot. You lose more to taxes if you take lump.[/QUOTE] Always pick the lump sum, sure you lose more to tax but you have more money that can be invested with (even if it is just the interest). It means you end up with more money than when the instalment plan finishes.
