A North Carolina woman who collected a lump sum of $88 million after winning a $188 million Powerball last February is facing an onslaught of criticism after she posted an enormous bail for her boyfriend…for the fourth time.

Lamarr (Hot Sauce) McDow was accused of arranging a street race Saturday, the New York Daily News reports. He was arrested Tuesday for violating the terms of his pre-trial release. As NewsOne reported last year, Marie Holmes, 26, posted bond for McDow three times — once just weeks after she collected her winnings ($3 million), once in August ($6 million) and again in October after he was arrested for possession of a firearm by a felon.

On Friday, Holmes posted a $12 million bond, the fourth time she’s put up millions since she hit the lottery.

From the Daily News:

His bonds are skyrocketing because the amount automatically doubles if a defendant breaks the rules of a pre-trial release, local attorneys told WECT. The non-refundable fee paid to bail bondsmen who bail out an inmate usually amounts to roughly 10% of the total bond amount.

Officials in the sheriff’s office told the TV station McDow’s latest arrest happened when their GPS monitoring system showed him at a location other than the ones he’s allowed in — namely his home, work, church, doctor or court.

Not surprisingly, many were upset with Holmes’ decision to post bond, taking to Twitter to express their frustration with the woman who said she would use her winnings to set up tuitions for her four children, one of whom is a special needs child.

But really, is the public’s anger misplaced? Shouldn’t they be mad at the person who keeps breaking the law? And should we even be concerned with Holmes’ money management?

After all, it’s none of our business, right? Sound off in the comments below…
