Convicted killer David Sweat who carried out a Shawshank Redemption-style prison escape has gotten himself in trouble again after he was busted getting frisky with his girlfriend during a recent visit.

According to the New York Post, David Sweat’s girlfriend, Frances Malanik, visited him on March 8th at the maximum-security Attica Correctional Facility in New York, where Sweat is serving life behind bars for murdering a police officer.

The 37-year-old prisoner and Malanik were in the visitor’s area at Attica’s Special Housing Unit, where Sweat is kept 23 hours a day in solitary confinement when a corrections officer noticed Sweat stroking himself through his pants.

Frances Malanik was escorted out of the prison after she was caught fondling Sweat Malanik who she had been dating since 2015

The Post added that the 45-year-old woman then reached through the window in the partition that was separating them and took over for her boyfriend.

Officers immediately put an end the visit and escorted Malanik out.

Sweat was placed back in his cell and is not permitted to see Malanik for 60 days.

David Sweat and Malanik began their relationship in 2015, just after Sweat was apprehended and brought back to prison after an elaborate escape.

That year, he and another inmate Richard Matt broke out of the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York by using tools smuggled to them by jail employee Joyce Mitchell.

The escape followed the one planned in the 1994 movie ‘The Shawshank Redemption.’

Matt was shot and killed by a border patrol tactical team three weeks after he broke out of prison. Sweat was apprehended on June 28, 2015.

Mitchell, who was also known as ‘Shawshank’ after it was found that she had sexual relationships with Matt and Sweat, was arrested and is serving seven years behind bars.

The detailed scheme and Mitchell’s engagement inspired a Lifetime movie in 2017.
