Ex-Prison Seamstress To Spend At Least 28 Months Behind Bars
The woman who helped two convicted killers escape from a northern New York prison will spend at least two years behind bars.
A judge has sentenced former prison seamstress Joyce Mitchell to a term lasting two and one-third years to seven years.
She had pleaded guilty to promoting prison contraband and a charge of criminal facilitation. Mitchell cried through most of today's sentencing hearing.
After a three-week manhunt, Matt was shot and killed and Sweat was captured.
