Ghislaine Maxwell Placed On ‘Suicide Watch’ Ahead Of Sentencing

Ghislaine Maxwell is facing up to 55 years in prison when she is sentenced on child sex-trafficking charges in a New York court on Tuesday.

The former British socilaite was convicted on 29 December of sex trafficking and related charges filed against her in Manhattan federal court after she recruited underage girls for her pedophile boyfriend Jeffrey Epstein to abuse.

Her attorney Bobby Sternheim said on Saturday that Maxwell had been placed on suicide watch even though she isn’t suicidal and he may seek to delay her sentencing.

Sternheim said that she had been “abruptly removed” from the general prison population and denied access to toothpaste, soap, legal papers, and any clothes except a protective “suicide smock”, rendering her unable to review documents relating to her sentencing.

The Guardian reports: The move prompted the British socialite’s attorney to write a letter telling the judge in the case that Maxwell would seek to postpone her sentencing Tuesday because she can’t properly prepare for the hearing. Prison officials on Friday took away Maxwell’s legal papers – along with her regular clothes, toothpaste and soap – while putting her in solitary confinement and on suicide watch, said the letter from her attorney Bobby Sternheim.

“If Ms Maxwell remains on suicide watch, is prohibited from reviewing legal matters prior to sentencing, becomes sleep-deprived and is denied sufficient time to meet with and confer with counsel, we will be formally moving on Monday for an adjournment,” Sternheim’s letter to Judge Alison Nathan said Saturday.

Sternheim’s letter added that a psychologist evaluated Maxwell, 61, and concluded she is not suicidal. But her sentencing comes nearly three years after her co-defendant, financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, killed himself in jail in August 2019 while awaiting trial in the sex trafficking case that also ensnared Maxwell.

In a reply to Sternheim’s letter later Sunday, federal prosecutors said Maxwell had been put on suicide watch in part because she had reported to the jail’s administration that the facility’s staff were potentially “threatening her safety”. The lockup’s staff put her on suicide watch to remove her from the facility’s regular population while it investigated Maxwell’s claims – and also because convicted sex offenders are generally at a higher risk of self-harm, prosecutors said in their letter.

Maxwell was convicted on 29 December of sex trafficking and related charges filed against her in Manhattan federal court after she recruited girls – some as young as 14 – for Epstein to abuse.

  1. And the only one named in this whole saga is Prince Andrew. Why have the other men not been named? They would not have been there without the men who for reasons known they were invited to Geoffrey Epstiens Island. And it wasn’t only Geoffrey that raped them, So were they like the liebour party in that they were members of the Democratic Party? They named Donald Trump but he wasn’t one that had sex with these girls. Their whole case would have so much more credibility if they named who it was that raped them.

  2. I can easily accept that there were some girls that found themselves in too deep and unable to get out of the Epstein circus, and some who enjoyed the lifestyle of rich men and travel etc, with their bodies as payment, but why do we only ever hear from two of the (now) women and both of those appear to have a narrow memory.
    Naming only Prince Andrew for instance when supposedly dozens of other recognisable men were involved.
    Have all the others involved been paid off already? – I think if I knew that my daughter had been used in this way I would have been a lot more vocal than any parent so far.

  3. She must have a good “dead man switch” or else she would have been taken out already.

    Its a pity she hasnt sang out about epstiens “clients”, but with the resulting sentencing it may change her mind upon the likely appeal!
    Crazy that her and epstien were so guilty of trafficking yet theres zero end users arrested and jailed.
