Matthew Matagrano may have had it backwards but that’s how he intended things.
A convicted sex offender, Matagrano was sentenced to ten years in his favorite place for his actions.
Just last month Matagrano made his way into the Manhattan Detention Center and spent several hours visiting with the inmates.
Matthew used a fake corrections department credential to get into New York City jails and wreak havoc while he was there.
And not all of his visits were peaceful.
In February Matagrano assaulted an inmate and stole a walkie-talkie worth $2,500.
He was also said to have handed out cigarettes to inmates.
Among the many offenses on Matagrano's rap sheet are conviction for sodomy and sexual abuse.
In statements to cops the man said he kept sneaking into jail because the people inside were "nice" and made him "feel important."
