Reports from Fox News indicate that Mitchell was indicted in a case involving the organization of high-stake games of poker at his home, and allegedly he also accepted sports bets through an online betting website in Costa Rica. He also stands accused of attempting to launder an amount greater than USD 8 million in proceeds.

In September of 2012 against Mitchell was filed an indictment, in which it was claimed that he operated high-stakes games of poker at his home and that he also accepted sports bets. Additionally, he was accused of organizing betting through an online betting website in Costa Rica. He was also accused of attempting to launder proceeds of USD 8 million and more.

In July of last year Mitchell pleaded guilty to all charges.

The judge in the case, David Russell, gave his consent for Mitchel to remain out of confinement pending the begging of his imprisonment term next month.
