Joyce Mitchell, the former New York prison worker who helped two inmates escape in June, has been sentenced to 2 1/3 to 7 years in prison.
The judge told Mitchell he didn't find her explanation credible and handed down the sentence.
In July, she admitted she brought tools hidden in meat to the Clinton Correctional Facility to help inmates Richard Matt and David Sweat escape.
