Robert Miles, victim of lottery scam, will get his $5 million

Robert Miles

The man who was cheated out of his $5 million lottery ticket will get his money after all.

Onondaga County District Attorney Bill Fitzpatrick confirmed to CNY Central that Robert Miles will get the lottery winnings, but Fitzpatrick did not confirm when or how much of it Miles will get. Fitzpatrick said he had the honor of calling Miles himself today to give him the good news.

Andy Ashkar was convicted and sentenced on July 23 to a minimum of eight and a third years in prison for stealing the ticket. Andy's father, Nayef, received three years conditional release for his role in the scam.
