More good luck for a convicted bank robber who won $1 million Massachusetts lottery prize.
A judge says 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 calls 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.
