Camden Man Sentenced to Over 11 Years in Federal Prison for Drug Trafficking

            El Dorado, Arkansas - Kenneth Elser, United States Attorney for the Western District of Arkansas, announced that Orlando Deshun Mitchell, (aka “Stunna”), age 40, of Camden, was sentenced today to 140 months in federal prison followed by four (4) years of supervised release on one count of Distribution of More Than 28 Grams of Cocaine Base. The Honorable Judge Susan O. Hickey presided over the sentencing hearing in the United States District Court in El Dorado.

            According to court records, on September 5, 2013, investigators with the 13th Judicial Drug Task Force and the Federal Bureau of Investigation arranged for a controlled purchase of cocaine base from Orlando Mitchell. On that date, a confidential source made contact with Mitchell who agreed to provide him with three (3) ounces of cocaine for $3,000. After the two met and the transaction was completed, officers submitted the suspected crack cocaine to the Arkansas State Crime Lab where it was determined to be a total of 81.08 grams of cocaine base.

            Mitchell was named in a federal indictment in July, 2015 and pleaded guilty to the charge in February, 2016.

            This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigations and the 13th Judicial Drug Task Force. Assistant United States Attorney Benjamin Wulff prosecuted the case for the United States.
