In January 2006, the Special Investigations Unit received allegations from Texas Tech University's Office of Audit Services that
Mr. Mitchell was operating a private business selling Institute-developed training materials for his own profit.
The indictment charged Mr. Mitchell with theft of $500 or more, but less than $1,500, by a public servant (a state jail felony).
