Her lawyer said that Ghislin Maxwell has to wake up with a flashlight every 15 minutes, so that she is breathing

Attorney Bobby Sternheim wrote, “Despite cell-in-camera camera surveillance, Ms. Maxwell’s sleep is interrupted every 15 minutes when she wakes up with a flashlight to see if she is breathing.”

Maxwell, who is awaiting his trial at the Metropolitan Detection Center (MDC) in Brooklyn, New York, is actually solitary imprisonment under the most restrictive circumstances “by legal sanctions”.

Maxwell is “highly and aggressively searched” and monitored 24 hours per day, his lawyer says, which is more restrictive than prisoners convicted of terrorism or capital murder.

Sternheim requested that U.S. District Judge Allison Nathan order the MDC’s warden to address the court regarding Maxwell’s terms of detention.

Maxwell was placed in quarantine earlier this week, after a staff member who works in his area of ​​the detention center tested positive for Kovid-19. She tested negative for the virus, according to a letter from federal prosecutors presented in court, and is not showing any symptoms.

According to previous court filings, Maxwell is being monitored for several hours a day by prison psychologists without his knowledge.
Step-up protection occurred in the summer following Epstein’s death while awaiting trial on charges of sexual trafficking at a separate federal facility in Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center. The New York City chief medical examiner’s office said Epstein died of suicide. According to the prosecution, the two guards were napping and shopping online, which according to the prosecution accused them of filing wrong records. The inspector has pleaded not guilty.
Maxwell, 58, was arrested on July 2 and charged with recruiting, grooming and eventually abusing the three alleged victims, including a 14-year-old girl. Maxwell pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Judge Nathan refused to bail Maxwell after he received flight risk.
In August, the judge denied Maxwell’s request to be transported to the general prison population, saying changes to his imprisonment were unnecessary at the time. Her trial is scheduled for July.

Maxwell’s lawyers have argued that Maxwell has never been referred to as suicidal and that current conditions misbehave with him.
