But that’s not the end of the story…
During the litigation, Evelyn claimed that the money she hid in the car was her Jackpot prize, which she won in Online Casino a few weeks ago. She didn’t share the information with anyone, even with her family, and kept it as a secret, because she wanted to purchase a house for her daughter’s that just get married and surprise her.
The family and the judge were shocked by the new evidence and the source of the money. The court reviewed all evidence and found that the Evelyn’s story took place precisely as she said, and the neighbor who was giving ‘tips’ on her to the police, misleads them because of his hostility for Evelyn. More important, the Judge didn’t understand the actions of the police and why the case went to the court without a prior and necessary check of all data.
After all, Evelyn immediately released from any charges.
