Davidson County Woman Pleads Guilty in State Tax Case

Date: August 14, 2013

RALEIGH – A Lexington woman pleaded guilty Wednesday in Wake County District Court to tax charges filed by the North Carolina Department of Revenue.

Pamela Beck Mitchell, 66, of 700 Weaver Drive, Lexington pleaded guilty on August 14, 2013 to three counts of Willful Failure to File Return, Supply Information, or Pay Tax.

Wake County District Court Judge Debra Sasser sentenced Mitchell to a 45-day prison term. The sentence was suspended and Mitchell was placed on unsupervised probation for 12 months.  She was also ordered to pay a $300 fine.

Information presented in court showed that Mitchell failed to file North Carolina Individual Income tax returns for the tax years 2009, 2010 and 2011.  Mitchell was employed by Lexington City Schools during the years in question. 

The charge against Mitchell resulted from an investigation by a special agent with the Department’s Criminal Investigations Section in Raleigh.
