Ghislaine Maxwell’s life behind bars is tough, but the Bureau of Prisons says she’s the one making it the hardest. It turns out that the British socialite keeps her cell “very dirty” and smelly, but she had complained about those conditions a couple of months ago.
In a letter to a judge, the government details Maxwell’s latest confinement conditions at the Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) in Brooklyn. “MDC staff ordered the defendant to clean his cell because it had gotten very dirty. Among other things, MDC staff noted that the defendant frequently did not flush the toilet after using it, which made the cell smell bad. “prosecutors said.

In addition, his cell became “increasingly dirty” as he did not clean it “for some time”.
First of all, the defendant Jeffrey Epstein can be thankful: she has now been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
MDC medical staff deemed the defendant “physically healthy” despite suggestions from her attorneys that she may not be able to stand trial due to her deteriorating health. Staff indicated that the defendant’s weight has fluctuated between 130 and 140, which they consider to be an adequate weight for her height of 5’7 “. The MDC also refuted the notion that the defendant experienced noticeable hair loss.
Maxwell’s suggestions about sleep deprivation were also rejected.
Prosecutors said that at night, MDC staff must confirm every 15 minutes that the defendant is not in danger. They do this by pointing a flashlight at the concrete ceiling of the defendant’s cell to illuminate the cell enough to make sure the defendant is breathing. This shouldn’t bother her too much, they argued, as the defendant has been seen wearing an eye mask when sleeping.
The MDC also noted that Maxwell is a privileged inmate who has more time “than any other inmate” to review documents and evidence in her case to prepare for trial. “Specifically, the defendant is allowed to review her discovery thirteen hours a day, seven days a week.”
For that purpose and while in a day room separate from his cell, he has access to both a desktop computer and a laptop, and a telephone through which he can communicate with his attorneys.
Although the MDC resumed face-to-face visits in mid-February, his attorneys have so far refused to meet with the defendant in person.
