She won and you didn't--get over it.  She isn't the first lottery winner to do dumb things and won't be the last.  I am disappointed that she bailed him out the second time.  He knew what his curfew was and broke it.  He was caught with 8000 bags of heroin that's why his bail/bond was so high--but she says he's not a drug dealer.  She's not too bright.  He is going to end up in prison anyway and she can't bail him out of that.

Yeah she won & I didn't, but I play harder I guarantee & I don't use cheats like she obviously did.

Anybody here deserved to win more than this piece of $hit.

    You really think she cheated by buying some quick picks?  LOL  Enjoy your day, JJ.

        Small world, I knew a guy that wanted to win power-ball so he could buy his brothers freedom.

        He told me he could buy off a few people and talked like it would be easy, his brother was serving

        life for murder.   Why would her bo need to sell drugs if she had 88 million, the drug trade must

        pay very well or it could be a setup

        RL

        Why would her bo need to sell drugs if she had 88 million,

        Some people just like the lifestyle.  They like the thrill of associating with thugs, feeling powerful and in charge, and feeling like they are outsmarting the law.  Remember Aaron Hernandez?  He certainly didn't need drug money.  He was wealthy until the lifestyle he loved got him tossed into prison.

          Ms Holmes is Right. It's her money and she can do what she wants with it. Whether she succeeds or fails in her choices,  she is the one who has to live with the consequences.

            He was already in jail facing serious charges and the bail set before she won the lottery.  He's part of a large heroin trafficking ring.  It was more than reasonable to set bail at 3 million and double the bail when he violated. She may get 6 million back, tho I bet he will run, forfeiting her 6 million, with her blessing. 

            Marie shd consider the fact that she and her children are sitting ducks. Any criminal could decide to kidnap her or her kids for ransom which does not guarantee safe return. If she were smart, and she is not, she would sever all ties with this guy and his associates and get out of Dodge...

               Love is blind.  When a person is in love he or she does irrational things. Such as what Marie Holmes is doing. 

               When I win big then I will be looked at by the world.  The same people who are judging Ms. Holmes will judge me.

               I do not expect to make major mistakes but sometimes irrational thoughts will occur in lottery winners. The change of lifestyle will be a culture shock.

               Now is the time to write down my plans on what I will do when I win. I will be to emotional when it happens.

                Not many of you all know the laws in NC. If you are out on bond for a charge and get arrested or charged again while you are out on bond, then your previous bond will be doubled. It had nothing to do with who she was. Get over yourselves, it had nothing to do with her winning the lottery. The first bond was set so high due to him trafficking heroin. The second bond of $6,000,000 was because he was out on bond for his first string of charges.

                  Waiting for chapter 2 !!

                  Twitch the 2nd chapter has been half written near as I can figure

                   

                  its obvious she has very little intention of changing her ways and as I've previously stated : 

                  "she'll be broke in 3 and 1/2 years"

                   

                  I reckon that by either the end of 2016 or possibly the start of 2017 we'll be reading 1 of 2-3 stories about her

                   

                  but $2 says we'll more then likely be reading about the final chapter of her sad tale of rags to riches and back to

                  ye olde rag pile life with her complaining about how even the " " charities are laughing in her face and denying any claims and her kids in foster care

                    It's just a drop in the ocean for her right now, but she better not do it too often.

                      Music... i believe the difference between Marie and the rest of the folks on here is that we learn from lottery history idiots(i.e.Jack Whittaker/others) and she has absolutely no desire to learn or listen. Honestly, what rational person bails a person out a 2nd time for actions taken that was an intentional probation violation, all stemming from the first incident ??
                      Oh I get the fact it's her money........it's just sad, that part of a financial windfall is being flushed down the toilet, when everyone on this site knows what phenomenal things each one of us could do to help others.

                       Probably all of us on LP has one time or another has vividly imagined what we would do with $80 Million+ in our bank accounts. Unfortunately, it leaves a bad taste when this kind of stupidity is so prevalent.

                      Wouldn't it be nice if we COULD fix stupid ?   Hurray!

                        No matter what type of person she is, the bottom line is that the government will find a way to get a piece of the pie. I think $9 million is ridiculous!! It's always about the money!!

                          Bail money is not a fine or fee. It is usually returned when the accused doesn't flee.

                          Marie needs to wisen up and realize that her past life needs to go if she wants to have any money left for the future. I'm sure the government and lawyers wouldn't mind taking a big chunk of that money from her and she's making it too easy for them. The media is also loving it.

                          Yep, that's how bail bondsmen make their money. They collect ten percent of the bail up front from the defendant, post a bond to the court for the whole bail amount, and assume responsibility for making sure the defendant shows up for trial. So Marie actually saved $600,000 by posting her boyfriend's bail herself with no bail bondsman in between. Of course, she also could have saved herself a lot of time and trouble by just dumping this loser, but that's a different conversation.

                          And if it is as jmw8138 says, and "Hot Sauce" is still out on bail for the original $3 million, I am fairly certain that his girlfriend gets her $9 million total back when he shows up for trial, assuming that the prosecutors combine both sets of charges into one case. Yes, the government side will hem and haw, and stall for as long as possible so they can squeeze some extra interest money out of that $9 million, but eventually they will have to give it back.

                          The comment by maringoman above about her boyfriend's lawyers above are also spot-on. Depending on how unscrupulous his lawyers are, they could drag this thing out into one long and expensive ordeal by selling her a (crack) pipe dream about how they can get "Hot Sauce" off, scott-free.

                            I'm just going to go ahead & say it right now: I'm afraid she's going to end up with Dave Edwards & Jack Whitaker as a complete lotto loser.  I hope not, but she's already spending gazillions of dollars to bail out a drug dealing loser; god knows what she'll spend her money on next...

                              Such a sad tale.  Its certainly her story.  It will play out accordingly.  There will be those who see and speak judgementally concerning her.  There will be others who will pray for her (Im in that circle). But the train wreck is playing out in front of the public, its not if it will wreck, its only when will it completely wreck. Guns in the home around kids, felons in the home around the kids, in and out of jail in front of the kids, and $9 million on bail instances is incredibly ridiculous. I hope the kids come out of the wreck safe and in a positive way.  We all believe we would be more responsible with the money, time and chance hopefully will give some of us on here the opportunity. I have had a written 40 page plan for 10 years, just waiting for my turn.
