Where is Ghislaine Maxwell now?
Ghislaine Maxwell is currently serving her prison sentence in Florida. The offender has been jailed in an all-female, low-security prison, FCI Tallahassee. Maxwell was found guilty of five charges on December 29, 2021, and was sentenced on June 28, 2022.
The charges against her include sex trafficking of a minor, conspiracy to transport minors to participate in illegal sex acts, sex trafficking conspiracy, transporting a minor to participate in illegal sex acts, and conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts.
As per the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Maxwell was kept at the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center in New York during her trial. After her sentencing, she was moved to the FCI in July this year. Maxwell’s attorneys had requested to shift her to the Danbury Federal Correctional Institute in Connecticut, but their plea was denied.
Ghislaine Maxwell will Serve 20 Years in Prison
The former socialite got a 20-year prison sentence in June 2022. The court order states that Maxwell would not be eligible for parole until July 17, 2037. By then, she would be 78 years old. Judge Alison J Nathan called her behavior ‘heinous and predatory’, adding that ‘she worked with Epstein to select young victims who were vulnerable.’
Meanwhile, Maxwell’s lawyers claim that she was treated badly in Brooklyn prison. “She has been subject to physical and emotional abuse by the correction officers, poor and unsanitary living conditions, insufficient nutrition, difficulties reviewing the millions of legal discovery documents in the case against her, and sleep deprivation,” the lawyers said.
However, the US Bureau of Prisons refused to comment ‘on the conditions of confinement for any particular inmate,’ adding that they were ‘committed to ensuring the safety and security of inmates and take allegations of staff misconduct seriously.’
