UXBRIDGE, Mass. -- A convicted Level 3 sex offender has won $10 million in the Massachusetts State Lottery.
The Worcester Gazette & Telegram reports 56-year-old Daniel Snay, of Uxbridge, could now face charges because he failed to notify authorities that he had moved, according to Connecticut State Police.
“I’m flabbergasted,” Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance told the Telegram. “His whereabouts, until you told me about this, have been unknown to us. But I guess you could say he’s very fortunate.”
Snay works driving trucks for a yacht dealership in Mendon. He won the $10 million from a $20 scratch ticket purchased at Cumberland Farms in Hopedale.
But the lottery winnings also come with unwanted publicity.
“He was concerned, but there’s not much you can do about it,” said Snay’s lawyer Joseph M. Fabricotti. “We talked about it and he understood this was one of the repercussions that could happen.”
Snay’s record of sexual assaults dates back to 1974. He has been convicted six times of indecent assault and battery in Massachusetts. Level 3 offenders are considered the most dangerous and the most likely to commit another crime.

Throughout my 34+ years of life on this planet, if there's one thing I've learned is that good things are just as likely to happen to bad people as they are good people and bad things are just as likeky to happen to good people as they are bad people. There is no ryhme or reason to it... at least one that's discernable while we're here. If there's an afterlife or some way the energy inside of us lives on, then you can probably bet this isn't our only shot at life on this planet... regardless as to how good or bad you are this time around.
People should attempt to be the best person they can for two reasons:
1) Because you want to make the world a better place.
2) Becuase you want to feel good about yourself.
Sorry if I sounded preachy. Sometimes you just feel compelled to vocalize a truth when the general concensus has a different interpretation. (what logic and reason tell me is the truth, anyway). It's like an itch that needs to be scratched.
