The Knucklehead of the Day award
Today's winner is Annie Donnelly. She gets the award for the following.
NEW YORK (Reuters) - A woman stole $2.3 million from her employers and spent the money on lottery tickets, buying as much as $6,000 worth of tickets a day in a bid to hit the jackpot, prosecutors said on Thursday.Why didn't Donnelly just keep the money instead? Who needed the lottery if you have 2.5 Million? Donnelly may well gave a gambling problem and in addition she is an embezzler. Thirdly, Annie Donnelly is today's knucklehead of the day.
Annie Donnelly, 38, pleaded guilty on Wednesday to stealing the money over 3 1/2 years from her employer, Great South Bay Surgical Associates, where she was a bookkeeper.
She was spending about $6,000 on lottery tickets a day, a spokeswoman for the Suffolk County District Attorney's office said. It was not clear how much, if any, she won.
Donnelly did not post bail and remains in custody. Sentencing is on September 20.
Donnelly was caught after several business checks bounced, raising the suspicions of her employers.
