Daniel Snay: Sex Offender, Lottery Winner

Uxbridge, Mass. - Massachusetts’ newest state lottery winner is Level 3 sex offender Daniel L. Snay of Uxbridge. Snay won $10 million January 29. He also won a probable charge of failing to notify authorities of his whereabouts when he moved from Connecticut to Massachusetts in 2004.

Snay actually won the lottery in the middle of January, but spent two weeks consulting with his lawyer before claiming his prize. He did not immediately tell lottery officials that he was a convicted Level 3 sex offender. They found out when upset citizens contacted them.

“I’m flabbergasted,” Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance told the press. “His whereabouts, until you told me about this, have been unknown to us. But I guess you could say he’s very fortunate.”

Mr. Snay’s record of sexual assaults dates to 1974, when he received a one-year suspended sentence for indecent assault and battery on a child under 14. He violated his probation and did a year in jail. In 1976, Snay was convicted again of indecent assault and battery on a child and scored a 5- to 7-year state prison sentence. In November 1978, Mr. Snay escaped from prison, launching a police search.

In July 1986, Snay got two concurrent two-year sentences for indecent assault and battery on a person over 14. He was charged that same year for sexually assaulting a 7-year-old boy. In October 1987, he did it again and got two two-year terms, to be served concurrently, for indecent assault and battery on a person over 14.

In 2004, Snay moved from Connecticut to Massachusetts without letting authorities in either state know where he was going, so he is likely to be charged in Connecticut for failure to comply with sex offender registry laws.

Snay’s lawyer, Joseph M. Fabbricotti, says that Snay has “tried to stay off the radar.” When press asked if Snay was concerned that the publicity over his lottery win would call attention to his past, Fabbricotti said “[Snay] was concerned, but there’s not much you can do about it … We talked about it and he understood this was one of the repercussions that could happen.”

One thing that Snay and his lawyer didn’t discuss was whether Mr. Snay would donate any of his lottery winnings to aid his victims. “I don’t know the answer to that,” Mr. Fabbricotti said. I bet I do. I guess he’ll have cash for bail, at least.

    I hope the victims sued that shetbag.

    If not, well, unfortunately the statute of limitations is only a few years. Anyone familiar with Conneticut civil procedure?

    WoW…Don’t you know it’s always the ones that don’t need it, or the ones that really don’t deserve it. I think it should be mandatory that he split it up among all of his victims.

    I wonder if the victims could sue in Civil Court for damages (like Ron Goldman’s family did to OJ)… hell, if my kid was a victim of this POS, I’d be contacting a lawyer and FAST…
    This shows why life just ain’t fair…. the deserving folks rarely win the lottery. Solidifies my belief that there is no God.
