Lake Charles –
On October 28 Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office Sex Offender Unit detectives arrested convicted sex offender Marcus J. Mitchell, 45, Lake Charles, after an investigation revealed he failed to comply with his sex offender registration requirements.
During the initial investigation detectives learned Mitchell was no longer living at his registered address. Detectives made contact with Mitchell at which time he stated he had not been living at his registered address for two weeks and failed to register his new address with law enforcement, making him in violations of his sex offender registration requirements.
Mitchell was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with failure to register as a sex offender 2nd offense. Judge Clayton Davis set his bond at $5,000.
Mitchell was convicted of oral copulation with force in 2013 in California. He was also convicted of failure to register as a sex offender in 2016 in Calcasieu Parish. Mitchell was also arrested in May of 2021 by the CPSO Sex Offender Unit for failure to register as a sex offender 2nd offense.
CPSO Detective Cory Myers is the lead investigator on this case.
An arrest is an indication that probable cause exists to believe the subject was involved in the offense alleged. A person is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
