Sex, drugs, and hit squads: Prison escape accomplice pleads guilty

Prison seamstress Joyce Mitchell, who pleaded guilty Tuesday to helping two inmates escape, told investigators that she performed sexual acts on one of the men and sent X-rated selfies to the other and knew they duo planned to kill her husband, police documents show.

Mitchell, 51, told investigators that inmates Richard Matt and David Sweat nicknamed her husband, Lyle, “the glitch.” They gave her small round pills to drug him with, but she didn’t go through with it, her statements say.

“I believe I helped Inmate Matt and Inmate Sweat escape because I was 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 in one statement.
