Mitchell appeared at the Kingstown Magistrates’ Court and was deported by Senior Magistrate Donald Browne.

Information surfacing at the court indicated that Mitchell entered the country by boat and disembarked in Georgetown on February 22, 2011.

On March 4, Rapid Response Unit (RRU) personnel were on mobile patrol in Rutland Vale, Layou when they encountered Mitchell. He admitted to the police that he had entered the country illegally.

Lawyer for Mitchell Grant Connell told the court that his client did not waste the court’s time and that he pleaded guilty at the first opportunity. Connell noted that Mitchell had come into the country to visit a female friend.
