Selma Attorney Accused of Bringing Jailed Inmate Drugs

From the West Alabama Newsroom–

A Selma attorney finds herself on the wrong side of the law in Dallas County.

Wal Attyarrested VoSheriff Mike Granthum says 29 year old Margaret Mitchell brought a birthday card with drugs in it — to an inmate at the county jail.

Granthum says the incident was caught on camera. He says jailers recovered the cards. And the cards  tested positive for cocaine.

Mitchell was arrested and charged with promoting prison contraband.

“The law is for everybody. It doesn’t matter if you’re an attorney — or a doctor — or a garbage man — or what have you. You’re not going to come to the Dallas County Jail and give inmates contraband,” Granthum said.

“I don’t think that she realizes how many people she put in danger. Not only did she put the inmate’s life in danger, her life in danger, but she put our officers in danger.”

Mitchell is free on bail tonight after posting $15,000 dollars bond.
