Shady officer may taint 2019 BRC court cases

Former Henderson Constable Earl Mitchell’s failure to disclose his corruption conviction may have “tainted” criminal cases he worked on during this year’s Burning Man festival, the county sheriff told the Review-Journal.

Pershing County Sheriff Jerry Allen said he only found out about Mitchell’s guilty plea to a gross misdemeanor — charges sparked by a Review-Journal investigation — after the event, which ended Sept 2.

“I’m highly upset I didn’t find out until the end of the festival,” he said in a phone interview. “Now, everything he touched is tainted.”
