Mitchell is arrested and charged with providing Sweat and Matt, with contraband and helping them escape Clinton Correctional Facility. The charges: first-degree promoting prison contraband, a felony, and fourth-degree criminal facilitation, a misdemeanor. Sources say Mitchell was charmed by Matt, to the point that “she thought it was love,” and planned to be the men’s getaway driver before she got cold feet. Mitchell’s husband, who also works at the prison, has not been charged.
