Mitcheson sentenced in escape case


Manuel Mitcheson appeared in court for sentencing Monday before Seventh District Court Judge Douglas B. Thomas.

Mitcheson, 20, pleaded guilty earlier on three separate charges. The two felonies could have carried a maximum of 0-5 years and the misdemeanor a maximum of 0-1.

Judge Thomas stayed the maximum punishment and imposed a sentence of 36 months probation. Mitcheson is to serve 120 days in the Carbon County jail. He is credited for 81 days already served.

Mitcheson must also pay a $925 fine and $300 in restitution in addition to complying to all conditions of probation.

On April 1 while being detained by Price City Police investigating an alleged attempted burglary by Mitcheson on February 3, he fled from the interview room. He then attempted to break into a residence to evade arrest. He was apprehended in Emery County a few days later.
