Another critic was just as sick as Mill, but not for the same reason:
"The things I could do with 70k and this fool lost it all in one night. I'm sick."

A third critic wondered why Mill would spend so much at the tables when he could do this:
"Why don't you send it to me, bro? With just 1k, you can change someone's life."
"Om, how that line go, "turn 62 to 125, 125 to 250, 250 to a half a mill, ain't nothing nobody can do with me."

"You literally coulda paid off all my student loans with that, and I woulda showed you a wayyyyy better time than the casino! Do you hear me tho."
The charge is related to his 12-year-old case which began after authorities detained him. Mill was 19 years old at the time of the arrest. The case was officially closed in August after the prosecutors presiding over the case dismissed the other charges
