WAYCROSS, Ga. — A Georgia man is facing decades in prison after he allegedly used his $3 million lottery winnings to fund a methamphetamine ring.
45-year-old Ronnie Music Jr. pleaded guilty last week to drug trafficking and firearm charges, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Music worked with several people to obtain and distribute meth throughout Georgia. He reportedly invested millions into the drug operation and was identified as the kingpin in September 2015.
He initially won a Georgia Lottery scratch-off game last year.
More than $1 million worth of firearms, ammunition, vehicles and meth were seized in the case, authorities say.
Music could serve a life sentence.
