Lottery Winner Could Lose $1 Million Prize

(WBZ) HYANNIS A Cape Cod man won $1 million in the state lottery - and he might not be able to collect any of it.

Timothy Elliot of Hyannis had robbed two banks in the past and was not eligible to buy lottery tickets, according to a published report.

Elliot bought a $10 ticket for the $800 Million Spectacular instant game at Stop and Shop in Hyannis. He picked up the first of 20 annuity checks for $50,000 before taxes on Monday at lottery headquarters in Braintree.

A law enforcement source told the Cape Cod Times on Tuesday that Elliot had pleaded guilty to robbing banks in February 2001 and January 2006. After each robbery he was sent to a mental hospital.

1. That sounds like a wierd probation restriction
Unless his original crimes were connected to gambling, I'd say that prohibition is bogus. There's a fine line between 'creaive sentencing' and moralistic authoritarian bullshit...
