Woman charged over lost lottery ticket claim

Filing false police report could bring six-month sentence, fine

Friday, January 9, 2004 Posted: 4:38 PM EST (2138 GMT)

(CNN) -- The woman who claimed to have lost a winning lottery ticket and then acknowledged that she lied about it was charged with one count of filing a false police report, a South Euclid, Ohio, police spokeswoman said Friday.

The spokeswoman said Elecia Battle will appear in court January 15 on the misdemeanor charge and could be sentenced to six months in jail and fined $1,000 if convicted.

Thursday, Battle dropped a lawsuit she had filed to block the $162 million payout of the Mega Millions lottery jackpot and admitted she had lied about losing the ticket.

2. I'm with you Dookus . . .
. . . that's why I posted this. I am surprisingly unsympathetic to this grifter.
