Prisoner Dressed as Daughter and Tried to Escape [PHOTO]

A Brazilian gang leader had a creative plan to break out of jail, unfortunately his lack of confidence gave him up.

Clauvino da Silva swapped clothes with his daughter when she went to visit him. He put on her tight-fitting jeans and pink t-shirt,completing the look with a silicon mask, a black wig, and a pair of glasses.

Authorities realized something was wrong because Silva was acting nervous as he tried to leave. He was detained and transferred to a maximum-security wing of the prison, where he will face disciplinary sanctions. They say he planned to leave his 19-year-old daughter in the penitentiary.
