Ghislaine Maxwell’s lawyers say their client is being abused in prison and that she is “a shell of her former self” as a result of her incarceration.
In a letter to New York District Court Judge Alison Nathan, Maxwell’s lawyers write, “The overall conditions of detention have had a detrimental impact on Ms. Maxwell’s health and overall well-being; and she is withering to a shell of her former self—losing weight, losing hair, and losing her ability to concentrate.”
The alleged madam to Jeffrey Epstein is charged with six counts of sex trafficking minors and perjury for allegedly recruiting and grooming young girls for the pedophile financier. She has been in solitary confinement in the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn for more than 200 days, according to her attorneys. Her trial is slated to begin in summer 2021.
