Role reversal: The prison tailor is now a prisoner herself. Joyce Mitchell pleaded guiltyyesterday to charges related to her helping two murderers stage a dramatic escape from an upstate New York prison earlier this summer. She faces up to seven years in prison. A district attorney said there’s not enough evidence to pursue a murder conspiracy charge against her, since recaptured inmate David Sweat didn’t corroborate her story that killing her husband was part of the plan.
Punctured pride: Is Tom Brady feeling deflated this morning (sorry, couldn’t help myself) after his four-game suspension was upheld? We don’t know, but we do know that the NFL Players Association will file an appeal. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell apparently affirmed the suspension he handed down in May after learning that Brady destroyed the cell phone that may have held texts relevant to the investigation. Brady’s attorney called the whole thing a sham, since Goodell essentially rubber-stamped his own decision.
MISSING FLORIDA TEENS
Hope holds: Today marks the fifth day that a pair of Florida teens have been missing in the Atlantic Ocean. The Coast Guards says, when the water is warm, people can survive in the water for up to five days. So will the search for the boys continue beyond today? The Coast Guard and the boys’ family and friends say they’re not giving up hope, despite the increasingly dire circumstances. Five cutters, a Navy ship and multiple planes are involved in the search, and the teens’ families have offered a $100,000 reward for their rescue.
