From District Attorney Scott Perrilloux:
AMITE--District Attorney Scott M. Perrilloux reports that 56-year-old Cameron Mitchell, of Kentwood, LA was found guilty by a Tangipahoa Parish jury for first degree rape.

On November 1, 2017, the victim stated that she was sexually assaulted by Mitchell at his Kentwood residence. According to the victim’s testimony at approximately 6:00 that evening she was on Wilson Road, east of Kentwood when Mitchell drove up in his pickup truck and demanded her to get into the vehicle. When she refused to get into the vehicle he pointed a silver knife at her and told her to get in. She stated that she was in fear of her life so she complied with Mitchell’s orders. Mitchell drove from Wilson Road to Ninth Street, the location of his camper trailer. Once at the camper trailer, Mitchell told the victim to exit the vehicle, she refused Mitchell’s orders. At this time Mitchell threatened the victim, once again she complied with getting out of the vehicle fearing physical harm. The victim stated that once inside of the camper trailer she was forced to undress and Mitchell began the sexual assault.

Assistant District Attorney Le’Anne Malnar displayed among other types of evidence, photos taken of the victim after the assault. Members of the jury were shown the victim’s scratches, bruises, and marks on the neck, both forearms, left shoulder, back, both hands, both legs, and bruising on both sides of her face. Also, the jury heard testimony from the treating doctor, SANE nurse, and DNA expert concerning her subsequent treatment at the hospital.

On November 9, 2017, Kentwood Police responded to a traffic accident on Highway 51 involving two tractor trailers. The driver of one of the trailers was Cameron Mitchell. Mitchell was wanted for outstanding warrants through the Twenty- First Judicial District. Mitchell was arrested for those warrants.
