Ghislaine Maxwell on Suicide Watch Just Days Before Sentence According to Her Attorney, and They’re Claiming Brooklyn Jail Staff Threatened Her

The Jeffrey Epstein/Ghislaine Maxwell saga has been one of the most wild. Business Insider says that Maxwell’s legal team is reporting she is on suicide watch.

This comes days before sentencing following Maxwell’s guilty verdict, as we reported previously. According to The Jerusalem Post, things are even scarier:

#GhislaineMaxwell reported Brooklyn jail staff threatened her safety, prompting employees to place her on #suicide watch.”

Maxwell is reportedly not suicidal. However, she has been given a ”suicide smock” and is placed in solitary confinement.

A Twitter account claiming to be advocating in the behalf of Maxwell is not suspended, even though Kyle Rittenhouse was banned by Twitter before being acquitted. The account last tweeted on May 9th, however:

“ICYMI: Filed 08/10/2020 “Ms. Maxwell does not seek special treatment at the MDC; but she does ask that she not be specially disfavored in her treatment in detention…

We therefore request that Ms. Maxwell: • Be released to the general population and be granted the privileges given to other pretrial detainees”

Prosecutors seek 30 years in jail for Maxwell, and the sentencing is planned for the 28th of this month.

BI added more detail in part:

But Maxwell’s attorney, Bobbi Sternheim, submitted a letter to US District Judge Alison Nathan on Saturday stating that she would seek to postpone Maxwell’s sentencing if her client remains on suicide watch.

Maxwell “is not suicidal,” Sternheim emphasized in the letter. She said staff at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York, placed her client on suicide watch on Friday “without having conducted a psychological evaluation and without justification.”

Jeffrey Epstein reportedly killed himself in a New York jail almost three years ago.
