Winning Robinson family of Munford, TN of $1.6 Billion Powerball Jackpot Sued By Prisoner Jonathan Lee Riches, also known as Jihadi Schitz
OK, WHEN I FIRST READ THIS STORY, I THOUGHT IT WAS FROM THE ONION … Jihadi Schitz, seriously?
The following story is exactly the reason why no state should force individuals to come forward who win the lottery, as there is a crazy ass screwball around every corner looking to get rich off of your new found fortune. Add the Robinson family of Munford, Tennessee to that list. It appears that a prison inmate name Jonathan Lee Riches, also known as Jihadi Schitz, has sued the Multistate Lottery Commission, Powerball and the Robinson family so that he can recoup one-half of the winning prize. Wait a minute, Jihadi Schitz? Are you serious? The lawsuit was filed on January 25, 2016 by Jonathan Lee Riches, AKA Jihadi Schitz, according to court records. According to NBC4, Jihadi Schitz, a former federal prisoner, is notorious for filing thousands of far-fetched lawsuits against public figures. Riches once sued Anne Hathaway for not visiting him in prison. And in 2014, he sued Johnny Manziel for sexual harassment. YIKES!!!
As the Powerball jackpot topped $1 billion, the frenzy grew. It was fun to dream, even if you knew you stood little chance. But often, a winner faces suits by friends, co-workers, even family. Sadly, it has now happened to the winning Robinson family of Munford, Tennessee. Jonathan Lee Riches, also known as Jihadi Schitz, has sued the Multistate Lottery Commission, Powerball and the Robinson family. The suit attempts to halt the payout of their third of the $1.6 billion win, or to recoup Mr. Riches’ alleged one-half of the loot.
The lawsuit is homespun and handwritten, hardly legible, much less drafted in the language of lawyers. But the suit is evidently meant to be serious, laying claim to half the winnings. Mr. Riches is the real winner, the home-made lawsuit claims. It goes on to allege that Mr. Riches was incarcerated in a penitentiary for the last several years, during which time Mr. Riches claims he was in frequent written contact with Ms. Tiffany Robinson, the daughter of the putative winners. Mr. Riches claims to have sent Tiffany $20 from his prison trust fund, urging her to give the money to her parents to buy lottery tickets, which the suit alleges they otherwise could not afford.
Mr. Riches goes on to allege that Tiffany was going to “murry him,” and that if they won the lottery, they would leave America to live on a remote island full of milk and honey. He is bitter that she and her parents are spending money Mr. Riches claims is half his. His complaint says he is a Muslim and that Tiffany was going to be his Muslim wife.
