Good Things Happen to Bad People

     A convicted sexual predator is a rich man after winning $3 million on a Florida Lottery scratch-off ticket. Timothy Poole purchased the ticket Saturday night December 5, 2014 at a convenience store in Mount Dora near Orlando.

     Poole was arrested in 1999 on a charge of sexually battering a 9-year-old boy. The victim was a member of a family whose home he once lived in. Poole denied the charges but eventually pleaded guilty to attempted sexual battery and was sentenced to the 13 months he had already served in jail.

     A judge revoked Poole's probation in 2003 after he failed to show up for counseling sessions. He was sentenced to three years in prison and was released in 2006.
