According to alleged sex-trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, her time in prison has made her subject to "onerous conditions." Here's what's going on behind bars.

All the things Ghislaine Maxwell is complaining about behind bars

Grooming & abusing underage girls is a serious crime: that’s exactly why Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s former partner-in-crime, is behind bars. Maxwell is being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn while she awaits trial on charges including sex-trafficking girls as young as fourteen within Epstein’s alleged years-long sex scheme. Maxwell has pleaded not guilty and was denied bail. 

Maxwell is currently sitting in prison while her lawyers are writing letters to the judge describing her awful circumstances. We wonder just what’s going on in there.

Life behind bars 

It was only one year ago when Ghislaine Maxwell’s former boyfriend & accomplice, financier Jeffrey Epstein, committed suicide in prison (or was murdered, as many claim), likely in hopes of preventing valuable evidence from surfacing. Due to this incident, Maxwell’s attorneys wrote a letter to the judge stating she has been “held under uniquely onerous conditions”. 

“As a result of what occured with Mr. Epstein, Ms. Maxwell is being treated worse than other similarly situated pretrial detainees, which significantly impacts her ability to prepare a defense and be ready for trial on the schedule set by the Court,” the lawyers claimed.

Maxwell’s attorneys asked the judge to direct the Bureau of Prisons to release Maxwell from her “restrictive conditions” to be with the general population of prisoners, or she won’t be able to prepare her defense adequately. The attorneys also stated Maxwell ought to be given the same privileges as other pretrial detainees, with increased access to a computer. 

In addition to asking for better treatment, the lawyers asked for New York federal prosecutors to disclose to defense counsel a few identities. These identities included three minor victims they cited in the indictment against Ghislaine Maxwell because they wanted to “meaningfully investigate the alleged conduct”. 

This kind of disclosure would be subject to the protective order imposed by the court so it wouldn’t be made public. In response to this the judge has asked the prosecutors to respond by Thursday.

Is Ghislaine Maxwell suicidal?

Since the first day of Ghislaine Maxwell’s arrival at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, she’s been held in isolation and watched around the clock. Her lawyers compared this to Epstein, who died while awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges, he was held in a completely different facility: Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center. 

Maxwell’s lawyers added the move was taken “despite the fact that she, unlike Mr. Epstein, has never been suicidal and was never diagnosed as exhibiting risk factors for suicide”. It was argued that Maxwell’s suicide watch is unnessesary and unfair, as she has already been subjected to numerous body scans & cell searches. 

Surely prison isn’t meant to be Disneyland – but is Maxwell really being treated unfairly? Let us know below.

  • I think she is being treated unfairly and the charges against her aren’t that significant.

  • Loosing your freedom is the punishment, knowbody should have an extra layer of solitary confinement put on top unless they have broken the prison rules or are danger to others. She could still be closely observed as a suicide threat and allowed to mix with other vetted prisoners. When all is said and done she’s still unconvicted.

  • Guilty guilty guilty …. Anyone who knew and didn’t tell or took part in under age sex trafficking should be right where she is. She has no conscious!
