A convicted sex predator who served 3 years in prison for a crime involving a young child is now a multi-millionaire. Timothy Dale Poole won $3 million on a Florida Lottery scratch-off ticket he purchased at a Mount Dora 7-Eleven store Saturday night.
“He was flabbergasted. He couldn’t believe it,” said Floyd Snyder, a friend who was with Poole when he hit the jackpot. “It was quite a remarkable thing. My heart is still beating.”
Poole was among the subjects of a recent Local 6 investigation that examined where convicted sex predators are employed. Poole is driver and dispatcher for Triangle Cab, a Mount Dora taxi company owned by his mother, records show.
