Lady who dug $1M lotto ticket out of the trash can't keep cash

6 hrs ago

A pair of Sharons have been fighting over a $1 million lottery jackpot, and an Arkansas judge finally sorted the situation out on Tuesday. Sharon Duncan bought and trashed the winning ticket after a computer scanner told her, "Sorry, not a winner." Sharon Jones grabbed it out of the garbage bin, realized that the computer was wrong and cashed it in. The judge said that Jones never proved that Duncan abandoned her rights to the money, which sounds like code for "Duncan just had a better attorney." Jones, who has already spent some of the cash on a new truck and gifts for her kids, will appeal the decision.
