    he was down on his luck and resorted to bank robbery, he got his chance at 1 million and he won, he already got the 50,000 dollar check so at least give him that.

    This is easy...stipulations of his parole clearly state he couldn't buy lottery tickets; the money goes to the state general fund and his stupid a$$ goes back to jail.

    They have gyms and three squares a day in prison...so look at it as an opportunity to get in shape more than a punishment. :oldrazz:

    Oh and the state could definitely use the money...all kinds of programs that could benefit. Not that they will, but they could. :dry:

    Once convicted, you lose all rights as a free man, case closed.

    :woot: :up:

    Maybe not all rights, but you certainly lose a number of them ...especially those that are clearly articulated in your parole. I won't feel bad at all if he has to forfeit his winnings (which he should).

    Sorry, by convicted, I thought the article meant thrown in jail. In jail, you have no rights except what the jail system allows you to have.

    Maybe the government can give it to your local school. Looks like they need help teaching grammar and spelling.

    he violated his parole, this is a no brainer

    saying this though, he should have kept quiet and given his ticket to a relative and had them claim it on his behalf

    they probably would have blown it on his behalf too....i know i would...

    He broke parole, he doesn't get to keep the money. Plain and simple.

    man that had to be the worst day ever. he bought the ticket probably hoping to win something like 500 bucks or something, easy so he could just walk out with the cash, not have to worry about the paper trail. then he scratches and gets 1 million, he more than likely knows he can not get this cash, but who passes up 1 million? helluva catch 22.

    The government has trillions of dollars to blow, they don't need that money.

    Give it back to the bank robber, it's not like he'll be able to find honest work at his age and with his background.

    This is why there are so many repeat offenders. Once the person gets out of jail society does everything it can to keep this person down. Just give him his chedder. This will at least lower the risk of him committing another crime.

    Have you ever considered his parole conditions were in place for a reason? What were the reasons he robbed the bank? Perhaps he is a gambling addict and there is a reason his parole officers did not want him to gamble.

    Or maybe he's just a f****** scumbag who deserves to be in jail. Divvy up his lottery winnings to some needy families that are trying to make ends meet through legal means.

    Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.

    Maybe that's how murphy's law applies to people with probations that apply to gambling.

    I need to get that kind of conviction. I can give the ticket to someone else.

    It appears the "no gambling" clause in his parole was to help him in his rehabilitation into society. In which case, throwing him in gaol for not doing what would be beneficial to him appears unjust as it goes against the basic principles of the autonomus individual in a liberal democracy. That being said, his has breched his parole, and although i'm sure it'll make whoever put those "socially helpfull" clauses in, feel stupid, it appears there would be a chance the breach was strong enough to warrant his re-incarceration.
    In this case the social benefits of the dude retaining the benefit of the winnings seems to outway any other factors. Although criminals can't profit from teh proceeds of crimes - he hasn't actually committed any "crime" in this circumstance, merely a breach of his parole.

    best outcome = maybe send him to gaol, but let him keep the money

    Well since we are in hypothetical fantasy land. Perhaps he was robbing from the rich, & giving to the poor. In which case he will more than likely give a good chunk of his earnings to charities.
