Ghislaine Maxwell, who was found guilty of sex trafficking of a minor and conspiracy to abuse underage girls, has been placed in solitary confinement and is on suicide watch.
According to the New York Post, Maxwell’s lawyer, Bobby Sternheim, said Saturday that “Ghislaine Maxwell is on suicide watch — but isn’t really suicidal.” Sternheim claims Maxwell was put in solitary confinement on placed on suicide watch “without justification,” adding “She [Maxwell] is not suicidal.” He adds that Maxwell’s June 28th sentencing, where she will face the possibility of up to 55 years in prison, may need to be delayed.
In a letter to U.S. Circuit Judge Alison Nathan Sternheim argued that, “If Ms. Maxwell remains on suicide watch, is prohibited from reviewing legal materials 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.”
Maxwell was a concupiscible accomplice in Jeffrey Epstein’s child molestation and abuse and was found guilty of five of six counts reflecting her assistance to the man who ran a pedophile island. Prior to Maxwell and Epstein’s fall from grace they were beloved socialites who cozied up to elites such as Bill Gates, Prince Andrew, and the Clintons.
Jeffrey Epstein was arrested and facing charges for decades long accusations of child sexual abuse and trafficking when he was found dead in his jail cell in April of 2019. Epstein’s death was ruled a suicide but all sides of the isle have voiced speculation or completely rejected the narrative that Epstein killed himself. With the cameras outside of Epstein’s cell conveniently not working, the internet coined the now infamous meme, “Epstein didn’t kill himself.”
Like Maxwell, Epstein was placed on suicide watch but he was removed just days before he was allegedly found hanging in his jail cell. After news broke of Maxwell being placed on suicide watch, many online were quick to predict an Epstein-esque fate for her saying, “Ghislaine Maxwell didn’t kill herself.”
Maxwell’s family has also expressed fears that she may face the same fate as Epstein. Maxwell’s sentencing is still set for Tuesday, June 28th, 2022.
