    Powerball Winner Robbed Again and Again

    Thursday, March 11, 2004

    WINFIELD, W.Va. — The man who won the largest single lottery jackpot in U.S. history has had a run of bad luck this week: He's been robbed twice and sued.

    Police said the business office of Jack Whittaker, who hit the $314.9 million Powerball jackpot on Christmas 2002, was broken into Tuesday and $2,000 was taken.

    On Thursday, Whittaker's vehicle at his home was broken into and property was stolen. State Police spokesman Sgt. Jay Powers said he could not release details.

    No arrests have been made.

    Earlier in the week, Whittaker was sued by an employee of a Cross Lanes racetrack and casino who alleged he assaulted her in March 2003. He has not responded to the civil suit, and has not been charged with any crime.

    In January, in separate incidents, Whittaker was charged with threatening to kill the manager of a bar and with drunken driving. Both cases are pending.

    Also in January, his vehicle was broken into and $100,000 was taken. No arrests were made.

    In August, Whittaker was allegedly drugged while at a strip club and a briefcase with more than $500,000 was stolen from his vehicle. The money was recovered and two club employees were arrested.

    I reemeber this guy. He is the one who was the one on tv after he won saying he didn't know what he would do with the cash, except that he would give 10% to the Church. From what I have heard he has been trying to convert strippers to his faith ever since.
