I truly hope this guy keeps his money, and that his newly hired attorney doesn't take him to the cleaners.  That he paid off his child support debt first shows he's got his heart in the right place; family first.  Btw, I didn't know ol' Jack Whittaker was a doper, I thought he was just an arrogant idiot who refused to allow anyone to tell him anything...

"That he paid off his child support debt first shows he's got his heart in the right place' family first."  What?

 

No, he didn't.   It is automatically deducted by the state if you owe child support.  Gosh, the man won over $300 million and he's suddenly a great family man because instead of going to jail he paid off his back child support.   Let's throw him a parade.

    Actually he was a nice guy who didn't know how to handle that much money.

    And he didn't know that throwing money at kids is one of the worst things you can do.

    He did some good things too. 

    I believe he meant well.

    Lord knows I won't cast the first stone.

    For the record, that was Jack Whittaker I was talking about, not Pedro.

      I agree with you.  Of course I never met the man but judging from all the stories, he sounds like a lost soul.

          booze and lottery came before his kids.

            I would say that as we can see, he is a god father.  He now has the kids and I think that is wonderful because at least he will have a hand is raising them and can provide a good education for them.  Some men don't even want to help.  Give him a chance, let him buy them what he thinks they should have, remember--he didn't have much!

            NO you idiot that law caught up to him, they make him pay or jail! Hello.

            He has the kids because is better for his checkbook.

            Question:

            Why did the law took so long to caught up to him.

            Answer:

            Well they are incompetent as well.

            Been a father is not just having a relationship with them, you have to put food on the table NO EXCUSE ON MY BOOK

            Now he has a chance to turn things around, but I seriously doubt because he is hardwire different than a normal person

            Don't have children you can't afford. period

            The mother of this children are idiots too for letting this looser (human garbage) see the children, it is very simple you don't provide food you don't get to see them that's it.

            One thing I cannot stand is anybody doing any kind of harm to the elderly or children is the lowest point of a human been.

            Hey even smoking near a child should be considered child abuse!!!

            Is that hard to comprehend?

            Really?

            Success come to those that don't give up!

              Am sure that we all have something in our lives tht people are not happy about how we chose or path.  However, part of what u stated isn't true because 3 of his kids are by his wife and DO live with him.  It would look very bad if the previous 2 kids wld not be able to share in his wealth by loving with him, like his arital kds.

              We can only speculate abt his future and hope to wish him well---you are right though that he just got lucky...

               

              good post and thank you

                Do we really know how and why he got behind, no we don't.  And am sure if he didn't win the lottery, the amount would have grown...U r right about harmng children because I know a few that could care less abt thier child's (that do not live with them) future.

                 

                This is just a discussion and shld not be written as a condescending topic to those that post.

                  I play my lottery at the liquor store all the time but do not buy liquor.  However, not sure in this guys case.  He just had a $1 and a dream, it paid off.  I just have a $1 and a dream and am hoping for the same...don't we all?

                    Remember, he didn't pay it---since it was in the records by the courts that it was outstanding---the lottery had to deduct that first before they gave him his final check.

                     

                    Just like if you won the lottery and owe student loans, I may not have wanted to pay them but regardless the lottery had to take out the government's money first!!!!!!

                        He said he would no longer be working at the bodega he has owned in  Passaic, New Jersey for seven years, and will insist that his 23-year-old son, who runs the store, will quit the job as well.

                          Perhaps he was paying in sandwiches, and the state failed to recognize those payments What?

                              His son is going to have to realize his Bodega days in that area are over, permanently. He'd be subject to kidnapping and/or extortion/robbery in no time.

                              The well-wishing of the neighborhood will eventually give way to jealousy, vindictiveness and misdirected anger and vengeance by the entitlement types in the area.

                              That's the sad commentary of life nowadays.
