    Man on probation who illegally played the lottery and won $1 million allowed to keep money

    BARNSTABLE, Mass. -- More good luck has come to a convicted bank robber who won $1 million Massachusetts lottery prize.

    A judge said Timothy Elliott can keep his winnings even though he violated probation when he bought the scratch-off ticket.

    Elliott was put on five years probation after pleading guilty in 2006 to robbing a Cape Cod bank. Part of that probation included no gambling or buying lottery tickets.

    His lawyer called the violation minor.
    Elliott has already gotten his first of 20 yearly $50,000 checks.

    He will now have to pay a $65 monthly probation supervisory fee, which had been waived because he was indigent.

    Isn't that just like the fruit of the poisonous tree as it pertains to throwing out illegally obtained (tainted) evidence in court? F that F'er... and the crook.
