3 Million Dollar Lottery Winner Invested Prize In Crystal Meth RingFrom incredible luck to a possible life in prison.

A former Georgia lottery winner has pleaded guilty to federal drug trafficking and firearm charges.

Ronnie Music Jr., 45, won 3 million dollars playing a scratch-off lottery game in 2015, but gambled his prize on the distribution 11 pounds of methamphetamine, according to a statement released Tuesday by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Georgia.

“Defendant Music decided to test his luck by sinking millions of dollars of lottery winnings into the purchase and sale of crystal meth,” U.S. Attorney Ed Tarver said. “As a result of his unsound investment strategy, Music now faces decades in a federal prison.”

Authorities caught Music’s co-conspirators attempting to sell drugs worth an estimated $500,000. Authorities said that Music supplied them after purchasing them with his winnings.

“As part of the case, investigating agents seized over $1 million worth of methamphetamine, a large cache of firearms, thousands of rounds of ammunition, multiple vehicles, and over $600,000 in cash,” the statement from the U.S. attorney said.

Music, of Waycross, Georgia, was working as a maintenance supervisor when he scratched the winning lottery ticket.

“I buy tickets every once in awhile,” he said in February 2015. “I couldn’t believe it, and I still don’t believe it yet.”

He now faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
