WARWICK, RI — A Warwick man arrested by Rhode Island State Police for cheating at Tiverton Hotel Casino has been banned from all Twin River properties, and found guilty of violating probation terms set in an unrelated earlier case.

Jacob Mitchell, 19, of 292 Chapmans Ave., pleaded no contest to an amended charge of obtaining money under false pretenses in Newport Superior Court on March 18 according to online court records.

Associate Justice Brian Van Couyghen imposed a no-trespass order and $93.25 in court costs, and filed the case for a year, meaning Mitchell could petition to have the case expunged if he does not get arrested again within that time.

Van Cuoyghen also ruled that the casino arrest violated the terms set in a 2018 felony drug possession charge brought by Warwick Police, referred Mitchell to the state diversion program, and released Mitchell on $3,000 personal recognizance until a status conference scheduled for this morning.
