Cleveland Agent Who Threatened Government Employees Has License Revoked

March 26, 2003

The license of Cleveland-based property property/casualty insurance and bail-bond agent Donnell L. Mitchell was revoked by the Ohio Insurance Department for several instances of criminal menacing.

Mitchell’s pending application to be a surety bail bond agent was also denied.

The order cites several instances of criminal menacing by Mitchell and the determination that Mitchell was not a person of high character and integrity as required by Ohio law.

In June 2001, Mitchell was convicted on one misdemeanor count of aggravated menacing in an incident involving a Cuyahoga County employee. Since then, two other menacing complaints were filed against Mitchell. In all three incidents, Mitchell allegedly intimidated and threatened the individuals.

In May 2002, the Department held an administrative hearing to determine Mitchell’s suitability to be licensed as an insurance agent and a surety bail bond agent. Mitchell failed to show up for the hearing. The hearing revealed that in addition to his criminal record, Mitchell failed to pay his parent company for bonds issued in the name of the company.
