British socialite and accused sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell is "withering" away while she is in jail due to what her attorney describes as harsh conditions.
“She is withering to a shell of her former self — losing weight, losing hair, and losing her ability to concentrate,” attorney Bobbi Sternheim wrote of Maxwell, according to CNBC. “It is impossible to overstate the deleterious effect of the conditions under which Ms. Maxwell is detained."
Maxwell is being held in connection to charges she is facing for perjury and allegedly recruiting underage girls for Jeffery Epstein, the disgraced financier and sex offender who killed himself while in prison.
Her lawyer described her situation as “over-management," referring to constant surveillance by Brooklyn federal jail guards in an effort to keep her from killing herself, CNBC reported.
Sternheim also said Maxwell had been abused during a search.
“Maxwell continues to be at the mercy of a revolving group of security officers who are used to guarding hundreds of inmates but now focus their undivided attention exclusively on one respectful, middle-aged female pretrial detainee,” Sternheim wrote. “Recently, out of view of the security camera, Ms. Maxwell was placed in her isolation cell and physically abused during a pat down search. When she asked that the camera be used to capture the occurrence, a guard replied ‘no.’ ”
Maxwell was previously denied bail by District Judge Alison Nathan after being deemed a flight risk. Her request to be moved to the general population within the Brooklyn jail was also denied in August of last year.
She has pleaded not guilty and is awaiting her court trial, which is scheduled for July of this year.
Let me be the first to say: She will not have killed herself.
Clearly they should be providing her underage girls to be sexually assaulted. Some adrenochrome as well...
Tell that to all the boys and girls who were raped at Pedo Island.
That’s too bad.
What’s for lunch?
Oh. It’s SO sad.
>> awaiting her court trial, which is scheduled for July of this year.
Is the goal to wither her to death before July?
Notice how they keep her locked up with no bail. They want her to die as she has the 8x10’s on so many big wheel politicians.
In Texas we have a saying: “Some people need to die.” Madam Maxwell is one of those people.
I still don’t understand what Maxwell was doing in the U.S. She probably has the means to live anywhere in the world. Yet she chose to live in the one country that would throw her in jail.
Is she really that stupid? Or that overconfident? Or was she promised protection...protection that never materialized?
Anyway, if I were advising her, I’d tell her to sing - make a deal before she accidentally falls down a flight of prison steps while at the same time stabbing herself in the back.
It’s not right that someone who is denied bail and is locked up, does not have their trial scheduled for a year and a half away.
gee that’s a shame.
Aw. I’m all broken up over her withering. NOT.
Her father Robert Maxwell a publisher and Mossad agent was very likely suicided on his boat named ‘ghislaine’
Awww. what a shame. This is pleasant compared to hell that awaits her if she does not repent
