Americo Lopes exits the courtroom on Wednesday, March 14, 2012 in Elizabeth, N.J. A jury found that Lopes had cheated five co-workers out of their share of a $38.5 million lottery jackpot. The men worked at a construction company in Elizabeth and began a lottery pool in 2007. Americo Lopes claimed the winning numbers for the Nov. 10, 2009 jackpot were on a personal ticket and not the ticket that he had bought for the pool. The eight-member jury disagreed.
