Andy Ashkar was sent to prison for 8- 25 years. In 2006 a man bought a lottery ticket which ended up being worth 5 million dollars. Then man took it to the store to be redeemed (unaware of the true value). Ashkar, son of the owner) told the man that the ticket was only worth 5 grand. He convinced the man to take 4 grand to save time in getting the money (and possibly avoid taxes). Ashkar held on to the ticket for short of 5 years. His excused was that he wanted to make sure his fiancé loved him for who he was, not for his money. When Ashkar, redeemed the ticket, the State Lottery did a routine check since his fathers store sold the tickets ( and possibly due to the long waiting period)) So do you think 25 years is excessive? Keep in mind he has had no previous criminal record. This national story had my interest, not only because it happened in the Salt City, but because I had taught him how to drive about 15 years ago.
