Ronnie316 was right on the money!  Hurray!

Next time I suspect rats are infesting my home, I will be calling him first.  Beaver

Perhaps I should open shop as "Ronnie PI" and your rats will be my first customers mcginnin56What?

    Reading this pissed me off. Poor guy, but at least now he can have some peace of mind. I hope jail goes terribly for them.

    As a warning to any other Gas Station Clerks who decide to rip off customers.....If I was the true winner of the $5 Million I might "Donate" a few hundred bucks to a couple of inmates canteen accounts anonymously and make sure the brothers get the "Extra" Treatment in Prison!  LOL   Bash      On the other hand they will probably lose their store and spend many years in prison so they will be far worse off than if they had just thrown the ticket away.

      Good shout out to Ronnie316!!!!

      The brothers said they'd be willing to take less money to avoid a news conference!

      Seriously? Who does that?


      As many members here on L.P. worried about remaining anonymous, would you take LESS MONEY

      just so your name would not get out there? I don't think so!!!! I'd ALL my money and forget about

      my name in the press!!  Deal with it!!

      Thanks Nikkicute.

      I think your right....

      if they had just walked in and picked up the check no one would have been the wiser.....

        It was the parents store, so likely no one will lose anything....

          I would be willing to bet those boys don't have to do ANY time in jail for their offences....

                  I Agree! 1st offence, monies given to the rightful winner. At best they'll do 6 months community service recycling scratch offs for 2nd chance drawings

                      On the other hand,they may run into a judge who is tough on crime and end up in prison for a whole lot of years.At least thats what I hope happens!

                        Andy faces 25 and his brother faces 15. I have a feeling the lotto will try to make an example of them if the law allows. Hard to believe he's a manager at a Toyota dealership.

                            It doesn't matter if the rightful winner gets the money.  The Brothers still committed the crimes!  They made a scheme to defraud the lottery winner. They then turned in the ticket to the lottery commission.  That makes it Criminal Possesion.  Even if this is their first offense they CAN NOT prove that the ticket was worth LESS than $1 Million that makes it First Degree Grand Larceny!  That's Mandatory Min. sentencing territory.    They will do a few years IF they are lucky and make a plea.  Any Lawyer worth his salt's first word to these two should be you absolutely want to AVOID a Jury Trial.....
