ALBANY, N. Y. — For­mer fugi­tive David Sweat was re­leased from a prison in­fir­mary Wed­nes­day and is fac­ing new dis­ci­plinary charges stem­ming from his es­cape from an up­state New York cor­rec­tional fa­cil­ity. The 35- year- old mur­derer, who was shot and wounded dur­ing his June 28 cap­ture, is be­ing housed at the Spe­cial Hous­ing Unit at Five Points Cor­rec­tional Fa­cil­ity in cen­tral New York. In­mates in that max­i­mum se­cu­rity unit are kept in soli­tary cells for 23 hours a day. The dis­ci­plinary charges re­late to Sweat’s ac­tions as an in­mate and are sep­a­rate from any crim­i­nal charges that could be filed against Sweat re­lat­ing to the prison break, state prison of­fi­cials said Wed­nes­day.
