Prison Escapee In Correctional Facility


     Recaptured prison escapee David Sweat was moved from a hospital to a maximum security facility early yesterday morning,

     New York State Corrections Department officials say sweat is being held at the Five Points Correctional Facility in Romulus, New York.

     Sweat spent the past week hospitalized for gunshot wounds he sustained during his capture on June 28th.

     He was on the run for 22 days after he and fellow inmate Richard Matt broke out of a maximum security prison in upstate New York last month.  Matt was killed in a shootout with police two days before sweat’s capture.
