I am glad for Mr. Poole's scratch off jackpot win. I am VERY glad he had his photo taken and it's out there for people with children to see(as a refresher and a reminder).
 While I am a bit perplexed as to why he wants the attention after past criminal activities.  Guessing the scratchoff god has a plan for this man.

    A criminal record or what crime you did has nothing to do with wining the lottery. While I would prefer rapists, child molesters, drug dealers and a whole bunch of other people did not win the lottery, that does not mean they don't have the right to win the lottery. If they paid the money and they are of legal age, then it is their money, end of story. If their victims want to sue them and it is within the law, then that is fine also, but it is their money, end of story.

      ScaredBaby raper + $3M = a very dangerous scary combination Scared.

      Not dangerous, mypiemaster, since once he receives the monies in January, he'll need to each quarter, finish paying remainder of due 41% Federal Income Taxes and newer 'highest-income-bracket Federal Medicare Taxes'. 

      Though an exciting jackpot lump-sum amount to win, this net win wouldn't be enough for an immediate retirement from working full-time until he's in his 60s.

        I agree with this.

        It's not up to the lottery to punish criminals, we have courts to do that.

        Of course when it comes to people we wish didn't win, there are many who have been discussed here who didn't have criminal histories but had other problems that made us wish they didn't win, or after they won, they went crazy. Even though what many of these people didn't wasn't as bad as Mr. Poole, we still wish they hadn't won.

        Lady luck is blind and any adult who buys a ticket has a shot at winning no matter who they are.

          Unless you are afflicted by the curse of "Can't win" that is.

            I hope the next time I read about this clown is when the headline reads "Lottery Winner/Child Molestor beaten to death"

            I Agree!  He belongs in a landfill.

                If the man legally purchased a ticket and won he should be allowed his winnings.

                  "We chose to not draw additional attention to this particular winner,"

                  Here's good news/bad news for all of you who want the lottery to let you be anonymous if you win.

                      450 pounds?

                      A pound of flesh might have been a fitting price to pay.

                      It's not fair to tag a person who has done their time for crimes they committed for life. But it is fair in a world
                      where sex sells and is on people's minds a lot of the time to watch the sexual deviants for life. And before any-
                      one cries, it's not his fault! It is, there are taboos. Anyone knows what's right and what's wrong.

                      $3M will afford this man a lot of good things or bad things.

                      If we see him in the news again for related crimes, we will know his rehabilitation and punishment
                      did nothing for him. I have little faith in a system that puts people on a watch list and requires
                      them to register with police depts. and stay a certain distance away from schools. They'll get what they want
                      no matter what. The punishments do not fit the crimes which is incentive to try and get away with more of the
                      same. IMO, the USA has failed miserably with its criminal justice system. His victims should be awarded the
                      money. But since he's already 'paid his dues' in jail time, there are some that would say move on. BS.

                      I can't imagine what a 9 year old child would carry with him the rest of his life due to a monster of society who
                      used him because he was a coward who had a misplaced sense of power and took advantage of him for his own
                      sick needs.

                      I'd most likely be the one in jail because I'd try everything possible to make sure he never touched a child again.

                      Some countries barbarianism might suit the US just fine - an eye for an eye, etc...removing the offending part
                      would certainly be just in this case. There should be no rights to anything once you've crossed certain lines.

                      In total agreement.  Ive seen predators walk and it sickens your heart. With $ at his disposal I dont think he ll be giving any to St. Jude.

                      Deviates with money equal a bad combination .

                        He is now being sued by some of his victims. Lets see what happens....If nothing else I bet they are just trying to get him to burn thru the lions share of his winnings in attorneys fees.

                            Poole pleaded guilty in 2002 to sexual battery of two boys.

                            The story doesn't say if one of them was the 9-year-old from the 2001 Orange County charge.

                            "If nothing else I bet they are just trying to get him to burn thru the lions share of his winnings in attorneys fees."

                            Does it really make any sense for the victims to sue him so they can watch a bunch of lawyers get rich?
