No. of Recommendations: 0 lottery run by rape support group

When a non-profit that helps rape victims decided to hold a lottery in Alaska, there's no way that they could have known that the $500,000 jackpot would go to a registered sex offender.

But that's just what happened when they pulled the winning ticket Friday night in the Standing Together Against Rape raffle.

KTUU-TV says Alec Ahsoak, the 53-year-old winner, was convicted three times of sexually abusing minors.

"He said he was going to buy a house and said he was going to donate part of it to God, and you know charity," Abe Spicola, the owner of Lucky Times Pull Tabs, a co-sponsor of the statewide lottery, tells the Anchorage Daily News.
