Ghislaine Maxwell Whines About Horrible Jail Conditions, Begs Judge for Transfer

    Ghislaine Maxwell, the alleged madam of the late billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, is used to a jet-setting multi-million dollar lifestyle. That's why adjusting to life in prison over the past month has been anything but easy for her.

    Now, the 58year-old British socialite is begging a judge to move her out of solitary confinement and into the general population at the Metropolitan Detention Center. The New York Post reported that in a letter written by Maxwell's lawyers on Monday, she whined about the "onerous" conditions she's faced in prison, including 24/7 camera surveillance and guards taking notes on her every move.

    "It has become apparent that the BOP's [Bureau of Prisons] treatment of Ms. Maxwell is a reaction to the circumstances surrounding the pretrial detention and death of Mr. Epstein," the lawyers argued in the court filing. "As a result of what occurred with Mr. Epstein, Ms. Maxwell is being treated worse than other similarly situated pretrial detainees."

    Epstein was found dead by hanging himself in his prison cell on August 10, 2019 as he awaited trial on numerous sex trafficking charges. Afterwards, two corrections officers were accused of failing to check on him the night of his alleged suicide, and of falsifying records.

    Unlike Epstein, however, Maxwell's lawyers argued that their client "has never been suicidal and was never diagnosed as exhibiting risk factors for suicide."

    The filing goes on to add that despite this, Maxwell was under suicide watch until recently, an experience that included being woken up every few hours and being forced to wear special clothes.

    "Her cell is [still] searched multiple times a day and she has been forced to undergo numerous body scans," her lawyers said.

    They added that since arriving at the Brooklyn prison just over a month ago, Maxwell "has been held under uniquely onerous conditions."

    "She continues to be surveilled 24 hours a day by security cameras and by multiple prison guards, many of whom do not appear to be regular MDC personnel," the filing stated. "These prison guards constantly observe Ms. Maxwell and take notes on her every activity, including her phone conversations with defense counsel."

    The attorneys claimed that this has all affected Maxwell's ability to adequately prepare her own defense, which is why they want her to be "released to the general population and be granted the privileges given to other pretrial detainees." In addition, they want her to be given more computer time so that she can review the mass of documents in her case.

    The lawyers concluded the filing by also calling upon the U.S. government to reveal the identities of the three victims Maxwell is accused of grooming and abusing in the 18-page indictment she has been charged with.

    "Maxwell cannot prepare for or receive a fair trial without this information," they stated.
