If 80K is the norm then approximately $960,000.00 was available for the taking during his tenure. Did Sheriff Gene Mitchell take that much money? That amount of money would go a long way in improving the jail, even squeezing enough money out of the jail funds to adequately feed the inmates, and building on to the jail. There seems to be enough BS going on with some of these sheriffs that each one of them who has taken inmate food funds should be required to undergo a forensic audit of all their accounts.
We encourage Sheriff Gene Mitchell to keep the comments flowing.
As promised. Tomorrow we will be posting some of the information we received from Billable Barney Lovelace under the Alabama Open Record Act during the campaign for sheriff in 2014. The only reason this information was not seized along with our hard copy records is that we had them stored electronically outside of our network. The first set of documents is the Jail Store Account.
It will make you wonder why all of a sudden this information is not releasable under the Alabama Open Records System. The documents are public domain information.
There's more to come of the Colonel (Gene Mitchell) and the Special Service Group or as they called it the SSG.
Officials disagree on statewide jail food solution
