Epstein Madame Ghislane Maxwell Moved Off Of Suicide Watch in Brooklyn Jail
Accused sex trafficker and longtime Jeffrey Epstein ‘madame’ Ghislane Maxwell has been moved off of suicide watch in a Brooklyn jail, with federal authorities placing the high-profile detainee in the general population of MDC Brooklyn.
Maxwell’s legal team advocated for their client’s transfer, arguing that prolonged segregation in solitary confinement left the British heiress unable to properly prepare for her trial on six counts of sex trafficking. They maintain that Maxwell has never actually been suicidal, and that her placement in such detention is an entirely unnecessary precaution jailers have taken in light of her connections to Epstein.
Maxwell has purportedly been awoken every few hours in her cell for jail shakedowns, and made to wear protective clothing preventing her from harming herself. Her legal team is also requesting that she be permitted internet access to prepare for her defense, and that she be provided with the identity of two anonymous alleged Epstein victims who point to her as an integral element of his sex trafficking operation.
