Alexander mayor's wife convicted on meth charges

Posted By on Wed, Jan 4, 2012 at 11:24 AM

The Saline County prosecutor's office has announced the conviction of Genieve Mitchell, wife of Alexander Mayor Paul Mitchell, of charges related to methamphetamine possession. She was sentenced to two years in the community correction department.

NEWS RELEASE


January 3, 2012—-Benton, AR—-Deputy Prosecutor Chris Walton released information this morning on a conviction obtained Tuesday January 3, 2012.

Genieve Marie Mitchell, 34, the wife of Alexander Mayor Paul Mitchell, was convicted of two counts of Possession of Methamphetamine, one count of Failure to Appear and two counts of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. She received a sentence of two years in a Community Correction Center followed by a one year suspended sentence.

In February 2011, Bryant Police Officer Nick Johnston stopped a vehicle with fictitious tags and arrested the two adults in the car. Officer Johnston allowed the driver to call Genieve Mitchell to pick up the child in the back seat. Once Mitchell arrived, the officer noticed the driver trying to furtively pass items to Mitchell. When Johnston searched Mitchell, he found methamphetamine in her pocket and a methamphetamine pipe in her purse. Mitchell was arrested and due in court in June to answer these charges, but she failed to appear for her court date. When officers went to her home to serve the warrant for her missed court date, Mitchell’s husband answered the door and allowed the officers inside the home. Officers found Genieve Mitchell sleeping in her bed with methamphetamine on her nightstand within arm’s reach. Another methamphetamine pipe was located in her purse and she was arrested again.

“Clearly, Mrs. Mitchell has little regard for herself or the court system. Hopefully she will take advantage of the drug treatment provided while she is incarcerated,” said Walton.
