Suffolk: Mega Millions winners must pay up
Suffolk officials say a Miller Place couple who recently won the Mega Millions jackpot must settle a debt with the county before they can enjoy their winnings.
Suffolk's social services commissioner says Mary and Richard Morrison, winners of $162 million, owe the county nearly $1 million.
The Morrisons used to operate homeless shelters for the county. Suffolk canceled its contract with the couple in 2005, claiming the couple was overcharging it.
News 12 Long Island has learned a New York State Supreme Court judge will order the couple to put $1 million of their winnings into an escrow account Thursday.
