Hot Lotto case goes before Iowa Supreme Court


MORROW IS ALSO FACING THEFT AND
FRAUD CHARGES IN THIS CASE.
STEVE: NEW TONIGHT, IOWA’S HOT
LOTTO CASE GOES BEFORE THE STATE
SUPREME COURT.
EDDIE TIPTON IS A FORMER LOTTERY
SECURITY OFFICIAL CONVICTED OF
TRYING TO FIX THE HOT LOTTO
GAME.
KCCI’S STEFFANI NOLTE WAS AT
TONIGHT’S HEARING.
AND STEFFANI, WHAT HAPPENED?
STEFFANI TONIGHT, THEY
APPEALED
— THEY REVIEWED A PREVIOUS
DECISION BY AN APPEALS COURT.
OVER THE SUMMER, THE COURT OF
APPEALS OVERTURNED TIPTON’S
FRAUD CONVICTION
BUT, THEY UPHELD THE CONVICTION
RELATED TO TIPTON’S TAMPERING OF
LOTTERY COMPUTERS.
TONIGHT, STATE’S HIGH COURT
HEARD FROM TIPTON’S ATTORNEY.
HE SAYS THERE IS NOT ENOUGH
EVIDENCE TO CONVICT.
>>THERE IS ABSOLUTELY ZERO
EVIDENCE THAT ANYTHING ABOUT
THESE COMPUTERS THAT PICK THE
NUMBERS, OR THE COMPUTER, ONE
THE TWO, WAS IN ANY WAY TOUCHED
OR TAMPERED WITH IN SOME WAY TO
ALTER OR CHANGE ITS
FUNCTIONALITY FOR THE DECEMBER
29, 2010 DRAW.
>>THIS REMARKABLE COINCIDENCE
THAT ALL THESE PEOPLE PLACE HIM
IN BUYING THE TICKET, CONCEALING
HIS IDENTITY, MAKING FALSE
STATEMENTS AFTERWARDS.
STEFFANI
THEY ASKED WHY THEY
WAITED THREE YEARS TO PUBLICLY
RELEASE SURVEILLANCE VIDEO FROM
THE GAS STATION WHERE THE
WINNING LOTTERY TICKET WAS
PURCHASED WHEN THEY KNEW
SOMETHING HAPPENED.
>>THEY HAD LEADS UPON LEADS
UPON LEADS, ALL THE WHILE, EVEN
THOUGH THE TIME TO ACTUALLY GET
THE PRIZE HAD ELAPSED, PEOPLE
WERE STILL CALLING IN WITH THEIR
CLAIMS ASSERTING THEY HAD
PURCHASED THE TICKET.
EVEN THOUGH THERE WAS NOTHING TO
GAIN FROM IT, IT DIDN’T STOP
PEOPLE FROM DOING THAT.
KEEPING THE VIDEO SECRET WAS A
VERY IMPORTANT PART OF WEEDING
