Lockup recommended for man who sneaked into jails
The Associated Press
Prosecutors told a judge on Thursday that they want Matthew Matagrano to be locked up for 10 years. Matagrano, a former inmate, pleaded not guilty to felony burglary in Manhattan Supreme Court.
The judge doubled his bail to $100,000 and ordered him to get medical attention.
The New York Post ( http://bit.ly/ZbNv0w) reports that according to police statements released in court, Matagrano said he repeatedly sneaked into jails because the people inside were "nice" and made him "feel important."
Authorities say Matagrano tried to get inside multiple city lockups, including Rikers Island and the Manhattan Detention Center, where he mingled with inmates for hours.
