Lawyer hasn't seen claimed winning lottery ticket
BALTIMORE (AP) - April 4, 2012 (WPVI) -- An attorney for a Baltimore woman who claims she owns Maryland's winning Mega Millions ticket says he has not seen it and doesn't know if his client has it.
Mirlande Wilson and attorney Edward Smith Jr. held a news conference Wednesday, where the attorney asked the media to leave his client alone. She said little, only confirming that she is originally from Haiti.
The attorney says other people brought her into the spotlight and the attention had caused Wilson's blood pressure to spike. He said he was hired to protect her in case she is sued.
When asked about a report from the New York Post that Wilson hid her ticket inside in the McDonald's where she worked, the attorney repeated that he does not know where it is.
