Pedophile Wins Sex Victims’ Lottery

In a brutal turn of events in Alaska, a convicted sex offender has won a lottery held to benefit sexual abuse victims. The lucky pedophile, twice-convicted Alec Ashoak, redeemed a winning Lucky Time Pull Tabs lottery ticket for $500,000 on Saturday. Proceeds for the lottery are going to Standing Together Against Rape in Anchorage, a nonprofit group that works with sexual assault victims in the area. “It’s not how we had envisioned the story going,” Nancy Haag, the group’s executive director, told CNN Radio. According to FBI statistics, Alaska has the highest per capita number of rape cases in the United States.
