A US man, who repeatedly used phony credentials to gain entry into New York City's jails, is set to be locked up for 10 years

Matthew Matagrano, a former inmate, pleaded not guilty to felony burglary in Manhattan Supreme Court, Stuff.co.nz reported.

The judge doubled his bail to 100,000 dollars and ordered him to get medical attention.

According to the New York Post, Matagrano said that 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.
