Woman who claimed she won $20,000 from Virginia Lottery scratcher could now face charges
Ardella Newman claimed she hit it big but was denied her prize. However the Virginia Lottery now says she may face charges. On Aug. 22, Newman claimed she purchased a $2 scratch-off ticket that matched the number 16, making it worth $20,000. “When I saw that $20,000, you don’t know how excited I was,” she told WJLA. However, Virginia Lottery officials told her there had been a mistake and the ticket was issued in error.
