Lotto millionaire sold drugs
Last Updated: Friday 6th August 2010, 01:00 am
When Christopher Graham’s step dad gave him a £1 million share of his £14 million National Lottery win he became an instant Lotto millionaire, albeit by proxy. A taste of the good life is surely what everyone needs, or at least that's what you'd think? However, not for Christopher Graham, who squandered his £1 million share of the UK Lotto jackpot on bizarre collections of all sorts of things and hard drugs.
The case isn’t as simple as you would think as it really wasn’t just drugs found in the house. Christopher Graham had been a habitual drug user, in and out of prison for years when he came into his lottery windfall. However a judge has agreed this week that rather than a drug dealer, Mr Graham is a compulsive hoarder who can’t say no to a good deal.
Giving a hoarder £1 million of National Lottery winnings is surely not the best idea in the world and soon Mr Graham had a bizarre collection of comics, teas and sauces from around the world, and this massive drugs stash.
In fact, Mr Graham wasn’t caught until he could no longer fit his illegal substances in his home. Mr Graham will be sentenced this week, not for dealing drugs but on a lower charge of obsession. Maybe now he can spend the rest of his lottery win on therapy for his clear addiction.
There are two chances to be the next Lotto millionaire this weekend. Firstly the Euromillions draw will be held this evening, the jackpot for that draw is an estimated £12 million then tomorrow evening it’s the turn of the £4 million UK Lotto draw. Don’t forget your lottery tickets!
