Hooray For Murray (N): Mugger Wins National Lottery

by | 9th, July 2007

murray1.jpg THE Sun is livid. And Bitter. Bitter and Livid, as nothing less than a convicted mugger claims his £4million lottery prize.

And Neil Murray is not even a decent kind-hearted mugger. He robbed an 88-year-old woman, snatching her purse which contained just £6 before apparently pumping the cash into arcade fruit machines.

So he is a gambling addict. To the Sun, he is a beast who doesn’t deserve his jackpot winnings. The fact that the crime took place eight years ago also doesn’t seem to matter to the Sun. A crime is a crime. Rehabilitation is not an option.

We are told that Murray was sentenced to 150 hours community service for his sins and ordered to attend Gamblers Anonymous.

A “family friend” says: “He is very ashamed of what he did. I believe he now has his gambling under control, though he obviously must still have a liking for it.”
