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.

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.

This is not the first time a registered sex offender has struck it rich.

In 2007, a Jensen Beach man arrested for lewd and lascivious or indecent assault upon a child snagged a $14 million lottery jackpot prize.

This year, Massachusetts legislators are considering a bill to prevent registered sex offenders from collecting lottery earnings after a $10 million winner used the money to buy expensive gifts for a new victim, police said.

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.


Some say there should be either more restrictions or he should give the money to his victims. Do you agree, or does it not matter?

Sucks that someone so horrible has won that. But now he's won it, you can't take the money away from him can you? He should probably donate to a charity helping sex victims.

At casinos, if you win a jackpot, the slots department runs a background test. If they find you have been delinquent on child service payments, all of your winnings go to the state and you still have to pay taxes on it.

I'm a bit surprised nothing is in place like that for the lottery.

ofc the situations are quite different

why the **** should he do that? it's HIS money. if there was a law that scumbags couldn't play the lottery, maybe

No, the man won the money give it to him. It's hard enough to come out of jail. he will probably never get a job and this money might keep him warm.

He won the money legitimately. No reason he shouldn't have it.

Maybe he has been successfully rehabilitated. This can only be a prime example of the rehabilitative success of the American justice system.

Just as a good gesture you know. Give something back to the community. It would be a good gesture so he wouldn't been seen as the sex pervert who won the lottery.

he served his time. if you don't think his prison sentence was enough of a punishment, then take it up with the judicial system. but don't go around thinking of ways to just fuck with him throughout his life. that's not how law works.
#18
Ofcourse the white criminal doesn't get shot after multiple crimes, and instead he goes on to live the american dream. Typical.

Yeah, he should be allowed to collect his money. Sucks that such a shitbag won, but he won.

he should lose his money, as should all winners that are found to be harmful to society as determined by the state

I think that money should certainly go to someone who isn't a bunch of grounded up dirt. I can't imagine how frustrating that must be for the people he's scarred and that food stamp thing is super scummy too. Not saying we should steal his money or whatever or that anything legal can be done but I'd have certainly preferred like, anyone else getting it. A non terrible person that has been reformed would probably use it to try to help the people's he's hurt I think but what can you do

Everyone upset about this clearly has already forgotten that the NSA has been and will be watching his every move. Now that he's worth a ton, they'll actually be paying attention to him and the likelihood is rather high that he'll get caught for yet another crime and have all that money whisked away as "bond."

Now he's off to Bangkok to fondle some children for pennies at the dollar.

Honestly this is karmas fault. Karma is supposed to take care of things like this, but instead the system is broken because Obama.

If anything, now that he's struck it rich, he won't need to participate in nefarious activities to make a living

i think he should get his money.

is it a morally questionable situation? yeah.

but guess what, the state & everyone who bought lotto tickets are complicit. it's a bit hypocritical for them to go "oh shit oops didn't know gambling could lead to undesirable outcomes." maybe they should take a long, hard look in the mirror & think about what they are doing with their lives.

edit: if they wanna pass legislation that says sex offenders cannot collect, that is ok, but they should not just decide willy-nilly that morally undesirables cannot collect.

I have an opinion. It's that every goddamn trivial news article doesn't need its own thread.

Yet here you are, annoyingly contributing to a thread you don't even care about. Don't you find that a bit sad?
