UXBRIDGE, Mass. — A Level 3 sex offender and $10 million lottery winner living in Uxbridge was arrested on new charges Friday, according to a press release from the Uxbridge Police Department.

News partner The Milford Daily News reports that Daniel T. Snay, 62, of 558 Elmwood Ave., was arrested Friday and charged with indecent assault and battery on a child under the age of 14 – a subsequent offense, reckless endangerment of a child, enticement of a child and dissemination of pornography to a minor, police said.

In court Monday, Snay was ordered held on $5 million bail.

According to a press release from Uxbridge Police Chief Leffrey Lourie, the new crimes Snay is accused of took place during a four-year period. Uxbridge police are working with police in Connecticut and Rhode Island as some of the alleged offenses happened in those states, police said.

Snay is listed by the Sex Offender Registry Board as a Level 3 sex offender, with convictions for indecent assault and battery on a child under 14 in 1974 and 1976.

In 2008, Snay won $10 million on a scratch ticket from the Massachusetts State Lottery. Police said in the release Sunday that his winnings were used to carry out the crimes leading to his arrest this week.

Department spokeswoman Melanie Blodgett-O’Toole said on Sunday that no additional information would be released until Monday, when Snay is scheduled to be arraigned in Uxbridge District Court.

Police are asking anyone who knows of any illegal activity involving Snay to contact the department’s sexual assault unit at 508-278-7755.

Inez Sanchez claims share of Pedro Quezada’s jackpot

Paterson NJ – A New Jersey man who won a $338 million Powerball jackpot, one of the largest, is embroiled in a court fight with his former girlfriend over his winnings.

The Record newspaper reports that a judge on Friday ruled that Pedro Quezada’s lottery winnings can’t be frozen, pending the outcome of a trial to determine if Inez Sanchez is entitled to a share of the money.

Quezada was the sole winner of the Powerball drawing last spring, worth about $152 million after taxes.

His lawyer says Sanchez has no claim because the couple were never married.

Sanchez’s attorneys say Quezada purchased the ticket based on the couple’s shared earnings. They say the two lived together for 10 years, have a child together, and shared ownership of a Passaic grocery store.
