Anytime you hear it said, "It's not about money" you should  assume, it's all about the money. 

The guy has already been convicted, and I assume he has been punished for his crimes.  The 

only new laws we need are ones that protect our existing rights under the constitution.

they are not.  Many great discoveries come while searching for something else

      I Agree! with  " Anytime you hear it said, "It's not about money" you should  assume, it's all about the money."


      There are VERY FEW Lawyers who are willing to work Pro Bono for clients who want to SUE a LOTTERY JACKPOT WINNER. Did l mention a $3 million winner?

       

      Imagine this scenario:

      Clients: We would like you to represent our case against a man who molested us decades ago..

      Attorneys: Represent you huh, what's in it for us?

      Clients: Well we just want to get the word out there that should that happen to others we would like a law put in place.

      Attorneys: We gather this person served time?

      Clients: Yes, but he recently won a $3 million jackpot.

      Attorneys: Well in that case we will represent you fine people, free of charge. We feel it's the right thing to do..Big Smile

            I think that was his intent, to point out that the law that was proposed is itself the beginning of a "slippery slope".

            I knew that M.I.T- I simply added my 1cent to that statement in case it went over some heads-..Now Venom milked that baby a lot more.Point taken nonetheless..

              Wish people got the emotions out of this.  Some are afraid to post what they truly think.  The guy committed a crime, paid for it, and all the money he wins after that he deserves.  PERIOD!

              Yeah, this case is all about the money.

                Who cares about this little boy's butt hole lover, oh yeah many of you guys and the Rutgers university professor that says it's not a crime in the first place. I don't care if it is about money, he served his time and these boys have a lifetime of memories of him digging out their behinds! So hope he spends up all his money on that great lawyer he bought! Maybe that's the objective!

                  Poole was never convicted of the crime alleged in the law suit so the question here is should all lottery winnings be withheld until courts can determine if the winners committed a crime or owe someone money. The Florida lottery claims forms doesn't even address child support, but if this bill passes winners will have to prove they are not child molesters before collecting their winnings.

                  This is much different than court ordered restitution, child and spousal support because there is no court ruling. Probably most of us have no sympathy for child molesters, but why should we have to prove we are not to collect lottery winnings?

                      we don't need any new law saying lotto winners need to wait a year to get their cash , cause 90% of the time people will start suing/making up lies and doing anything to steal and con the cash away.

                       

                      the guy can just gain another 100 pounds and make it harder to leave his house. also looks like he might drop dead of a heart attack soon anyways.

                        It's random chance. If states have lotteries they have to accept that anyone good or bad can buy a ticket and win.  The good thing about the lottery is that there are no rules that only upstanding citizens can play and win. You don't want to get into having a morality clause and setting up every winner for investigation and legal confiscation procedures - see the RICO act, see civil asset forfeiture.

                          I respectfully disagree with the Sayers of "Its ALL about the money". Until you walked the path of being a victim or having a family member destroyed because of a  pharmaceutical companies ineptness and a Doctors negligence, you do not get to sit in the chair of public opinion and rant as such. Been there, done that and can say with honor to the family member, it was not about the money, it was about accountability for a wrongful death . So I get that the victims wish to be compensated, for the injury will last them a life time....I couldn't have given a rats tail what the judge came back with for the financial, it wasn't going to bring the person back. I cared that the Doctor and the pharmaceutical had to be judged, held accountable, and rectify how they operated.. If the only way to get them to WAKE UP is thru their pockets, that is on them. No amount of money  can ever bring that person back or heal that sorrow.

                          As for this fellow who did his time, I'm sure the lottery is giving him the rope needed to hang himself...sometimes what is perceived to be unfairness by the public, turns out to be the show of hands in reasoning. This gent will have his day....

                            I do see your point Shelby Mustang.

                            I also think this is a rare case where neither parties are benefiting from the publicity... kinda interesting actually as it usually is one sided.

                            The FL lottery just lined the pockets of a convicted pedophile.

                            And... those that played for that particular drawing helped whether they like it or not.

                            Most of us losers at least take some solace knowing our losses are going to a "supposedly" good cause.

                            I wouldn't characterize this case as the "very best of lottery advertising"...

                            No I wouldnt even say they lined his pockets....he like everyone else just randomly bought a ticket. You dont have to like the winners themselves but I do like the fact that anyone can win, it just shows the complete randomness of the lottery

                              I agree. I do not understand why in the world the child-victim(s)multiple did not sue him way back when,

                              procure such winning judgement easy,as cases support east to west coast month to month,year after year

                              and would have had 1 million each or more for both victims.I am not sure it is way too late now,we will see.

                              ---Many adage, that KARMA shall come his way...I don't know...--- doesn't look that way right now...

                               

                              I also agree yes,he has a right legally to procure tix any day of the week,however do not circumvent the abhorrent human being he is.

                              People like that you're right,do not change.Even if they want to believe that.But legally yep he has a right to his "winnings."smh
