Prison Worker Joyce Mitchell Cries at Sentencing: 'If I Could Take It All Back I Would'

By EMILY SHAPIRO Sep 28, 2015, 10:52 AM ET

Former New York prison employee Joyce Mitchell cried at her sentencing today, telling the judge, "If I could take it all back I would."

"I can't begin to explain how sorry I am for all this," she added.

Her sentencing came exactly two months after she pleaded guilty to helping two convicted murderers escape from a maximum-security prison.

Mitchell pleaded guilty in July to first-degree promoting prison contraband and fourth-degree criminal facilitation. Today, on the prison contraband charge, she was sentenced to an indeterminate period of incarceration from 2 1/3 years to 7 years. For the criminal facilitation charge, she was sentenced to 1 year concurrent to the prison contraband sentence.

She was also fined $5,000 and $1,000 for each charge respectively.
