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!
