Husband of Seamstress Who Helped “Shawshank” Escapees Has Forgiven Her


Joyce Mitchell’s Husband Said He “100 Per Cent” Still Trusted Her After Her Lies.

The husband of Joyce Mitchell, the prison seamstress who helped the “Shawshank” prisoners escape earlier this year, has revealed he has forgiven his wife, declaring she had a “heart of gold”.  Lyle Mitchell was giving an interview to NBC News when he said he still loves his wife and has forgiven her.  He is currently waiting for her to be released from prison.

Joyce had said in a previous interview with Mat Lauer that she lied to police about her involvement in order to protect her husband since she “feared for his life.”  She also blamed her involvement with the inmates, Richard Matt and David Sweat, on depression.
