Third time's the charm for lottery winner

JONESVILLE, Va. - They say if at first you don't succeed, then try, try again -- one Southwest Virginia man is living proof of that.

Adam Sexton of Jonesville, Virginia recently turned in a winning lottery ticket worth $100,000.

Here's the interesting part -- he got a couple of tickets as Christmas stocking stuffers. One of them was a winning ticket worth $10.

Sexton bought more tickets with his winnings, and won another $15.

He used that money to buy more tickets, and that led to the winning $100,000 jackpot.
