Ghislaine Maxwell wants to be moved out of the ‘suicide watch’ solitary confinement

Ghislaine Maxwell is seen in this court sketch as she appears before NY Judge Alison Nathan

Whew, I didn’t get a chance to write about this yesterday, when the news came out, but here we are. I feel strongly that we should just keep our eye on what’s happening with Ghislaine Maxwell in real time, as she sits in jail in Brooklyn. Because of the information and blackmail material she has access to, we all know that Ghislaine has a target on her back. I mean, her former pedophile lover Jeffrey Epstein died under mysterious circumstances in a New York detention center almost one year ago exactly. So even if there isn’t a ton of “news” about Ghislaine on a daily basis, we should just… be aware. That something could happen, especially when we’re paying attention to other sh-t. Now it sounds like Ghislaine is hoping that something happens to her too:

Ghislaine Maxwell has asked a judge to move her from an isolated cell where she is watched constantly by guards to be housed with other prisoners at the New York jail where she is awaiting trial on charges that she groomed minors for her former boyfriend Jeffrey Epstein.

She has also asked to be told the identities of the three women who have accused her of grooming them when they were teenagers between 1994 and 1997 – allegations that are the basis of the charges against her.

Ms Maxwell, 58, who has pleaded not guilty and was denied bail, is an inmate at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn where it is thought she is being held on an unoccupied floor under constant scrutiny. In a letter to Judge Alison Nathan, her lawyers claim that the “uniquely onerous conditions” in which she is being held were a reaction to the death of Epstein, who committed suicide in a Manhattan jail last August while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.

Epstein’s death prompted an outcry, several investigations and charges against two prison officers who were supposed to be monitoring him but are accused of browsing the internet, falling asleep and falsifying records to suggest that they had checked on him regularly.

“As a result of what occurred with Epstein, Ms Maxwell is being treated worse than other similarly situated pretrial detainees,” her lawyers said. She “has been confined alone in an area outside of the general population [of inmates] for the entire 36 day period . . . and there is no indication that this will change”. They said that she is watched continuously on video cameras and by “multiple prison guards, many of whom do not appear to be regular [Metropolitan Detention Center] personnel. These prison guards observe Ms Maxwell and take notes on her every activity”. Until recently she had been woken every few hours in the middle of the night and “forced to wear special clothing” – special measures typically adopted for suicidal prisoners – “despite the fact that she, unlike Mr Epstein, has never been suicidal”. They say her cell is searched “multiple times a day and she has been forced to undergo numerous body scans”.

[From The Times]

“Despite the fact that she, unlike Mr Epstein, has never been suicidal” WHEW. I thought Ghislaine felt like Epstein was murdered? And why is she actively trying to get around people, where *someone* could get to her and, like, shank her in the yard or something? I’ve read a lot about how solitary confinement is a human rights issue, and an issue of “cruel and unusual punishment.” But… sources also say that Ghislaine gets three hours of exercise outdoors a day, one hour more than other inmates. People are also saying that there is just no way they can allow Ghislaine around other prisoners, the risk is just too high.

I’ve been saying from the start that “they” wouldn’t take care of Ghislaine the same way they “took care” of Epstein. Having Ghislaine shanked in the yard by another prisoner would suit their purposes well. So why is Ghislaine even trying? Why does she want that? It shouldn’t be this f–king hard to keep a pedophile human trafficker alive for a year to face trial.

    Am I the only one who doesn’t believe she’ll be alive to stand trial? I hope all her documentation , photos and videos are already in safekeeping ready for reveal.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Well, that is why she is being confined. Although Barr is a slippery mfer who will do anything to protect rump, so you may be justified in feeling that way.

      • Christine says:

        Her “suicide” would have happened had she been caught a year ago with Epstein. I feel a bit different in the reason Barr won’t do anything is because it’s too close to the election and they don’t want an investigation into her mysterious death to hurt the GOP’s chances. That’s also why Trump is being so nice when talking about her – he knows there’s a good chance he won’t be in the white house for much longer and will lose his bogus protections that’s kept him out of jail these past few years.

    • Korra says:

      A lot of people do. And I would not be surprised if she were offed so close to election when so many people’s attentions are diverted away.

  2. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    Oh, boo-fkn-hoo, Ghislaine. No one gives a flying fk just how onerous you feel it is.
    No easy way out for you, you need to be publicly tried in court.

  3. lucy2 says:

    Well, I’m sure all those teenage girls didn’t want to be groomed and assaulted, so I’m not going to cry for this monster not getting what she wants.

  4. Dani says:

    I don’t think she wants to be in genpop so she can be ‘taken out’ so to speak but probably because she will have more access to outside info through guards/inmates and for all we know could even know people inside.

    • MegJ says:

      That’s what I think too, she wants to trade information get access to “off the record” info through he sources and she knows she can’t do that while she’s being watched so closely.

  5. Amy Bee says:

    Prisoners have a moral code, they hate child molesters. She’s safer in solitary confinement.

  6. Also Ali says:

    A narcissistic sociopath is likely being mentally tortured by being in solitary confinement more than your average sociopath who doesn’t depend on a constant stream of external validation to exist. A narcissist would totally ask to be in general population.

  7. Queen Meghan’s Hand says:

    I don’t think Barr will have Ghislane killed in prison. I think she won’t even spend a year in prison awaiting trial. She’s setting up for her release and she’ll get it.

    Have you read about her father? I highly recommend Sarah Kendzior’s Hiding In Plain Sight. Ghislaine inherited this trafficking business from her father and brought Epstein into the business. People like her and her father are above the law. Any punishment they may receive are always paltry compared to the destruction their actions have caused.
    This is the worst timeline.

    • Jules says:

      I think she may have a plan but too many people are on to her. Her game is up. Her father died in mysterious circumstances. They were above the law, but they’ve been exposed.

  8. 10KTurtle says:

    I’m not as worried about her getting shanked as I am worried about her getting COVID-19. I still believe that Barr’s perfect crime is to facilitate her getting sick and dying and I think it’s a miracle she hasn’t died already.
    Legal question: How or why is she not being told the names of her accusers? Is it because they are/were minors? I know there were so many victims that she can’t narrow it down herself and she just wants a head start on her smear campaigns. I say this in absolutely NO defense of Maxwell- it feels wrong somehow to throw anybody in jail and say “somebody accused you of rape but we won’t tell you who.”

  9. Storminsteacup says:

    Epstein would not have gotten anywhere without her money and access to the upper echelons of society. He was just a nobody from Brooklyn until she stepped in his life. This upper class woman drove around trailer parks to source and groom underaged girls. She then justified her behaviour by calling these girls ‘trash’. There’s nothing criminals hate more than paedophiles. She’s as good as dead if she gets out of solitary confinement.

  10. Charfromdarock says:

    It’s as hardly as onerous as being sex trafficked as a CHILD.

    I doubt she will see trail either but I do hope for Virginia and the other survivors, she does and that there is justice for them.

    No sentence will ever equal the punishments she inflicted on those girls and women.

  11. Bread and Circuses says:

    Maybe they want her out in the general population so she can meet up with contacts and help organize some nefariousness involving destroying evidence?

    But then again, she was on the loose for months. I’m sure she already accomplished all the nefariousness necessary.

  12. cisne says:

    my question has always been why does it take a year to hear her case? why was she arrested if they could not go to trial like 4 months or so after her arrest?

  13. Tracyface says:

    Someone could easily kill her, wtf would she want to be in the general population. I wonder if she thinks she can get information out to someone this way. idk
