Clayton won $1 million in 2011 on the Michigan lottery show Make Me Rich! At the time, she was on Welfare, receiving about $200 each month. After winning, however, she let the checks keep coming for nearly a year. She eventually got caught and received two felony counts, the penalty requiring five years of jail time for each. She told ABC news that “I thought they would cut me off, but they didn’t, so I thought it was maybe okay because I wasn’t working”.
