Infamous prison escapee says he could have done it again

The surviving convict who escaped from the prison in Dannemora may have been transferred to Attica for revealing another escape plan.

This past weekend "The New York Times" reported that David Sweat told it he revealed a plan to escape from the Five Points correctional facility for special treatment. The notorious convict said hours after he laid out his elaborate plan, he was shipped to Attica with no extra privileges.

The "Times" said a corrections official told it that Sweat's claims were without merit, but it still moved him out of an abundance of caution.
