It's hard to live or act like a millionaire when your million comes $35K yearly after taxes over 30 years.

A net $35K annuity + income from gambling per year isn't bad living; if a solo person using careful spending.  However, if he won another $23K and continued stealing, perhaps he spent more than $23K to get that it!  Or perhaps he simply enjoys being a stealing bully month-in-month-out, and living higher on the hog than his net income from work plus gambling provided him.

Greeds and addictions are deeply entrenched habits/mindsets.  I've got my own couple of addictions (unhealthy foods and inactivity) that I will cease this year, one way or another.

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO @ helpmewin!!

     

    In reference to the article, addict or not, he's just plain evil and greedy and I'm glad he was caught. I despise people that rob others to feed their evil needs, especially elderly people. And to just know he's won the lottery twice already makes my butt wanna chew nails and spit rust.

      He must have won the $1M by playing a lot. Problem is that he had got used to playing a lot and when time to stop came he didn't even realize it. $35,000 a year on top of a job that pays $25,000 a year is good income even in Mass with all the taxes. Sadly some people cannot be saved No Nod

      It's a futile effort.

        Yeah, ever so often we read of some lowlife doing bad things.This guy was pulling this crap in a few neighbourhoods and probably got comfortable thinking he could get away with it. I don't give a rat's arse about  his age, maybe 18 months will straighten his oit or not, in any event his pulling time.
        What does he tell his cellmate who asks " Hey old Timer- what you in for?
        Think he would be honest and say " screwing the elderly over "..by the way can l get an extra blanket, its cold in here.

            The prosecutor is overly nice in saying that Michael Santaniello's cheating of his customers and especially the elderly was because of his gambling addiction. Santaniello's experience with cheating his customers appears to be much older than his winning the big one from the lottery.

            Since Santaniello could not see himself someday, if he is lucky, in the shoes of the elderly that he cheated, and since Santaniello could not see his uncles, aunts, parents, and other senior members of his friend's families in the elderly that he cheated, Santaniello is most likely not a true human entity, but a cloaked evil spirit masquerading about on earth as a human being, and he was just going about, living out the demonic appointment that he had in his tenure of life on earth.

            Hopefully, the Preachers will win him over during the next 18 months behind bars, and convince him, to do more for those that he had cheated, at least from the $35K that he still has coming to him, yearly from the Lottery.

              Heating your home is expensive enough, and to add insult to injury, he took advantage of the elderly, more human garbage, throw away the key and keep his cell at a nice 60 degrees.

                I know a few persons who because of economic hardships keep their winter thermostats in the mid fifties during the day and even colder at night up here in the midwest.

                I think that 60 degrees will be way too comfortable for Michael Santaniello, to trigger a lesson in respect for the elderly, and their struggles and for others for their hard earned monies.

                How about knocking off 20 degrees from the 60 degrees and give him an extra blanket  just enough to make him feel its about 45 degrees inside. He won't die from it alright, but he might learn from it.

                    Its way too harsh to give the guy jail time instead of treatment. He could get BETTER and make restitution.

                        Give him the fancy treatment WHILE HE IS DOING THE JAIL TIME.That way he still gets punished if the treatment doesn't work!

                          Perhaps house arrest and in home care would do?

                            That might just be what he gets with the liberal judges that sit on the bench these days.Whatever happened to the "make the punishment fit the crime" line of thinking?
