MOUNT DORA, Fla. - A sexual predator has won almost $3 million from a Florida Lottery scratch-off ticket.

Orlando television station WKMG (http://www.local6.com/index.html) reported Wednesday that Timothy Poole purchased the winning ticket last weekend at a convenience store in Mount Dora, near Orlando.

Poole is listed on a Florida Department of Law Enforcement website as a sexual predator.

The television station says Poole was arrested in 1999 for on a charge of sexually battering a 9-year-old boy. Poole denied the allegations but pleaded guilty to attempted sexual battery and was sentenced to time served in jail.

His probation was revoked in 2003 after he failed to show up for counselling sessions. He was sentenced to three years in prison and released in 2006.

Poole tells WKMG he was wrongly accused.
