Mega MillionsMega Millions: Ohio Lottery Loser Faces Police Charge

Elecia Battle, who admitted yesterday that she lied about losing a $162 million Mega Millions lottery ticket, was charged today with filing a false police report.

On January 2, Battle told police in South Euclid, Ohio that she had somehow lost the Mega Millions ticket shortly after buying the ticket at a local Quick Shop.

If convicted of the misdemeanor count, Battle, 40, faces a maximum of up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Below you'll find a copy of the winning ticket and the criminal complaint lodged today against Battle in Municipal Court.  Today's criminal case is just the latest entry on Battle's rap sheet, details of which Lottery Post first reported earlier this week.







Here's the $162 million lottery ticket that hoaxer Elecia Battle so desperately wanted.  A copy of the actual winner -- purchased by Rebecca Jemison -- was provided by Ohio cops who nailed Battle for filing a false police report claiming she had lost the Mega Millions ticket.

            THE COPS SHOULD THROW HER IN PRISON!!!



         There are thousands of people everyday that get thrown in prison for much less serious crimes than her! She attempted to steal millions of dollars...the cops should charge her with a more serious offense....she should at least go to prison for 6 months!   She said that she intended to give some of her winnings to the Cleveland Police department because she always admired the cops (if you can believe that one)

          Too bad Ms. Battle wasn't in NY or NJ.  The lottery officials there might have help her with her plight as they did with Melvin Milligan aka Al Oliver who coincidently A Melvin Milligan went to Washington High School with Jack Oliver in Ohio.  My guess is that Melvin Milligan is probably deceased, that's why they chose his name.  Jack Oliver was once advisor to a President.  I've been constantly harassed in attempt to scare me in to keeping my  mouth shut.  I've tried to get help from the news media, other politicians, attorneys, etc.  However, it seems no one wants to get involved.

            A local judge charged the lawyer who was with Ms. battle with contempt of court.  seems that when he was on T.V. with battle he should have been in court on another case....The judge told him that he had to pay court cost and the prosecuters fees for missing court..Seems he had called the judge and stated he was not feeling well.

              Sounds like Ms Battle and her lawyer were on the same page when it cames to telling a lie for a chance  to share a part of the $162M jackpot. 

               * you don't need to buy every combination, just the winning ones *
