MONROE - A former Green County Jail inmate pleaded no contest Wednesday to charges of smuggling drugs into jail and contributing to the death of a 17-year-old inmate. Danny Douglas Mitchell II, 45, formerly of Montello and currently in the custody of the Rock County Jail, was found guilty of a Class D felony count of intentionally contributing to the fatal delinquency of a minor and a Class I felony count of delivering contraband to an inmate after he entered into a plea agreement Wednesday. As part of his plea agreement, a Class C felony count of first-degree reckless homicide was dismissed, and repeater modifiers were dropped from his remaining charges.
