Ronnie Music Jr. 45, won $3 Million dollars from a Georgia lottery scratchoff game February, 11, 2015 but instead of using his winnings for a better life, he decided to ‘invest’ in the drug trade.
WSBtv reports that Ronnie Music Jr., of Waycross, GA, could face life in prison after he invested part of his lottery winnings in a crystal meth ring.
Investigators determined Music was supplying meth to a group of coconspirators who were caught trying to sell approximately 11 pounds, worth more than $500,000 on the streets.
Despite his millions, the 45-year-old from Waycross, Georgia, cannot afford a lawyer and is being represented by a state appointed attorney, reported Jacksonville.com.
Music is in jail indicted with four others in a conspiracy in Glynn and Ware counties to possess more than 500 grams of methamphetamine for the purpose of distributing it. he was also charged with a single count of being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of firearms in the furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Music allegedly had six shotguns, three rifles and two revolvers in his possession. Court documents show that the government seized more than $600,000 that Music had in the bank.
Agents seized more than $1 million of meth, firearms, thousands of rounds of ammunition, multiple cars and $600,000 in cash as part of the case
Music pleaded guilty to federal drug and gun charges and now faces life in prison.
Some say there is a ‘lottery’ curse, but this right here is just plain ol’ STUPIDITY!
