Mitchell gets 6 years in death of fellow inmate
MONROE - A former Montello man was sentenced to six years in prison Wednesday on charges of contributing to a 17-year-old's death by smuggling drugs into jail. Danny Douglas Mitchell II, 46, Janesville, received a sentence of six years in prison to be followed by six years of extended supervision on a Class D felony charge of intentionally contributing to the delinquency of a minor leading to the minor's death and a Class I felony count of delivering illegal contraband to an inmate. Mitchell was charged in 2015, more than two years after the death of Kyle Peotter, a Freeport resident who was 17 years old when he was sent to the Green County Jail on a probation violation.
