NY Prison Worker Pleads Guilty in Escape of 2 Killers

A northern New York prison worker admitted Tuesday to smuggling hacksaw blades in frozen hamburger meat to two killers who later broke out and spent more than two weeks on the run. Joyce Mitchell, a tailor shop instructor at Clinton Correctional Facility, wept as she pleaded guilty to charges of first-degree promoting prison contraband, a felony....., and misdemeanor fourth-degree criminal facilitation. Her lawyer said his client won't be able to post the bail set by the judge at $100,000 cash or $200,000 bond. Mitchell was jailed shortly after the elaborately staged June 6 escape of Richard Matt and David Sweat.
