Convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell has been placed on “suicide watch” while she awaits sentencing in jail, according to reports.
Last week, Maxwell was found guilty of procuring, grooming, and trafficking underage girls to be raped by her late pedophile boyfriend Jeffrey Epstein and his powerful friends.
60-year-old Maxwell was convicted on 5 of the 6 trafficking charges and is now facing spending the rest of her life behind bars.
However, Maxwell’s legal battles are not yet over as she still faces a separate trial on charges of perjury.
A date for the sentencing of Epstein’s accomplice has not been set yet but she could be jailed for up to 65 years.
According to a report by Metro, Maxwell will be on “suicide watch” while she remains in custody prior to her sentencing.
Since her arrest in July 2020, the daughter of a wealthy British newspaper tycoon has been held at the notorious Metropolitan Detention Centre in Brooklyn.
And according to experts, the newly convicted sex trafficker has endured “the worst of what prison can offer.”
Justin Paperny, who advises people on how to minimize their time behind bars, explained that Maxwell has already spent more than a year in solitary confinement, dealing with Covid-19 and quarantine.
He told The Times that Maxwell might be pleasantly surprised when she arrives at her new home and added: “Her case is different because she’s already endured so much time in custody.
“She’s been in this wretched, dank, cold, filthy detention center in Brooklyn which has really conditioned her for confinement.
“People are surprised to hear that once she is sentenced and makes her way to the federal correctional institution, she will actually feel like she’s in Disneyland compared to where she is now.”
Even more, Maxwell could be given access to a running track, a library, and a chapel, with room to roam around potentially all day, according to Mr. Paperny.
As Slay News previously reported, insiders have revealed that Maxwell’s only hope of reducing her sentence would be to cooperate with investigators by “issuing some names” of anyone involved in Epstein’s crimes.
Epstein was found dead in his jail cell while awaiting trial on child sex trafficking charges in August 2019.
His death was ruled a suicide.
