CelebNSports247.com has now learned that the Chargers strong safety Derwin James is vindicated now that cops have found and arrested his robber who will be getting locked up for almost a decade.
Cops launched an investigation after the incident and found a breakthrough a few weeks later, when Mitchell allegedly tried to sell the watch at a pawn shop in the San Fernando Valley.
James confirmed Mitchell was one of the men who robbed him … and the guy was arrested and hit with FIVE felonies for the crime.
But, Mitchell copped a plea deal with prosecutors this week — court docs show he was convicted on charges of felony robbery and felony criminal threats and the 3 other charges were dropped.
According to court documents … for the robbery charge, he was ordered to serve 9 YEARS in state prison as well as pay fines, fees and restitution.
As for the criminal threat charge — he was ordered to serve 3 years in prison for that crime, but the judge ruled that will be a concurrent sentence to the nine-year one.
