David Sweat pleads guilty in New York prison escape – CNN
Sweat was shot and captured by law enforcement on June 28 after more than three weeks on the run. His breakout partner, Richard Matt, was shot and killed two days before Sweat was caught. Officials discovered on June 6 that the convicted murderers had drilled their way out of the maximum-security prison.
Prison worker Joyce Mitchell, who helped Matt and Sweat escape, was sentenced to up to seven years for first-degree promoting prison contraband, a felony, and a concurrent year for fourth-degree misdemeanor criminal facilitation.
