Prison Worker Had Sex With Escapee, Planned Murder

By    |   Wednesday, 29 Jul 2015 11:19 AM

The details provided to law enforcement by the plain-looking prison seamstress who helped two murderers in their daredevil escape from a maximum security prison last month could be torn from the pages of an X-rated novel.

Joyce Mitchell, 51, pleaded guilty Tuesday to a felony charge of bringing contraband into the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York, a felony, and the misdemeanor criminal facilitation, NBC News reported. She faces up to seven years in prison when she is sentenced next month.

Both Richard Matt, 49, and David Sweat, 35, worked in the prison tailor shop where Mitchell, a married grandmother, was a supervisor. Her husband, Lyle, also worked there.

The men heaped attention on Mitchell, who began doing favors for them, such as phoning Matt’s daughter and taking pornographic "selfies" for Sweat, according to NBC.

Though she denied ever having sexual contact with Sweat — he was reassigned from the tailor shop after rumors circulated that the two were involved — Mitchell acknowledged to investigators that "I did take some naked photos of my breasts and vagina and gave them to Inmate Matt to give to Inmate Sweat. I do not know what they did with the photos."

The New York Times reports that in late April, Mitchell said she succumbed to an open-mouth kiss from Matt, who soon afterward asked her to provide a screwdriver bit, which she did.

The next month she performed oral sex on Matt, though according to NBC News, Mitchell claims she did so out of fear.

"On other occasions, Matt would come to her desk wearing a big coat in which he had cut a hole so that Mitchell could touch his genitals. This happened two or three times," she said. "The only other physical contact I had with Inmate Matt was when he kissed me at the bottom of the first set of stairs. He never touched any of my private areas."

Mitchell ultimately supplied the men with a host of tools, including eyeglasses equipped with lights, hacksaw blades (hidden in frozen hamburger), chisels and a punch, and agreed to a plot to give her husband two pills — provided by the inmates — to knock him out so that she could meet the men the night of June 5 and be the getaway driver.

She was to bring a sawed-off shotgun, a hatchet and a GPS.

Mitchell says that she got "caught up in the fantasy."

"I enjoyed the attention, the feeling both of them gave me and the thought of a different life," she said.

But when the day arrived, Mitchell panicked.

"After I picked them up, the plan was to drive to my home and Inmate Matt was going to kill 'the glitch,'" she said, using the name Matt called her husband.

Mitchell was a no-show and instead went to the hospital after suffering a panic attack. She initially lied to investigators about her involvement but by June 7 had spilled the beans, according to the Times.

"I know I had agreed to help them escape and run away with them, but I panicked and couldn't follow through with the rest of the plan," she said. "I really do love my husband and he's the reason."
