The Oregonian newspaper said the couple and two sons named in the suit all have a criminal history: Samuel; Elizabeth, 47; and Samuel Jr., 24, have been convicted of drug offenses. Westley, 20, has been convicted of robbery.

Such a family... O.O

So maybe there really is is a "Criminal Gene" that gets passed along from generation to generation!  I think it's called Learned Behavior.  Often we read about show biz families with problems, but being raised in a screwed up environment isn't limited to the wealthy.  One would hope that winning a large sum of money would help people turn their lives around. At least they had the choice, but they obviously chose the wrong path.  I feel sorry for their children, although they're adults too and could have walked away.

(although TheGameGrl has a good point.  I've mentioned before I had more than one personal experience where the press edited way too much, so one never knows.)
