Joyce Mitchell denied parole again

Joyce Mitchell has been denied parole for the second time in her role in the Dannemora prison break in 2015.

The state parole board denied her request for an early release, citing concerns she would once again break the law and be a danger to society. She was previously denied parole in February.

Mitchell was sentenced in 2015 for helping inmates Richard Matt and David Sweat escape from the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora. She was later sentenced on promoting prison contraband charges and facilitating criminal activity.

Mitchell will now serve two more years of her sentence at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility.
