Mesa child molester convicted

Prosecutors announced Tuesday that a jury has convicted Phillip Mitchell, 42, of Mesa, of molesting an 11-year-old girl beginning in 1999.

Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas said Mitchell molested the girl at least seven times between 1999 and 2001. She came forward several years later, and Mitchell was arrested in Oct. 2005, Thomas said.

The jury found Mitchell guilty of five counts of child molestation and two counts of sexual conduct with a minor. He will face no fewer than 80 years in prison after his sentencing on Dec. 11.
