Captured New York Prison Inmate Arraigned on Escape Charge

One of the convicted killers who led law enforcement on an intense three-week manhunt after escaping a maximum-security prison in upstate New York pleaded not guilty to an escape charge on Thursday. 35-year-old David Sweat in his first court appearance since the June 6th breakout from Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York, appeared for his arraignment in a green prison jumpsuit, his right arm in a sling, in the courtroom at Clinton County Government Center in Plattsburgh. Sweat and his fellow inmate Richard Matt, who were both convicted of murder, cut holes in their cell walls, climbed down a catwalk and navigated through a steam pipe, emerging from a manhole outside prison walls on June 6th.
