The Department has filed formal disciplinary charges against Sweat in relation to his escape from the Clinton Correctional Facility   A hearing officer will determine the extent of Sweat's misconduct and if appropriate, impose a penalty including continued placement in the Special Housing Unit.

Officials say any criminal prosecution related to the escape will be handled separately by the Clinton County District Attorney's Office.

Sweat and Richard Matt escaped from the Clinton Correctional Facility on June 6th.
