The surviving member of the pair of prison escapees appeared in court today.

— -- The convict who escaped from a maximum security prison in upstate New York, triggering a massive manhunt, appeared in court for the first time since his capture.

Today, the court entered a not-guilty plea for Sweat on two counts of escape in the first degree and one count of promotion of prison contraband for his possession of a hacksaw that was found in the cell.

The last time he was seen publicly was when he was photographed at the scene of the capture, seated on the ground and bloodied.
