Ghislaine Maxwell in for ‘crushing experience’ at hellhole jail where inmates are dying to batter her, ex-warden reveals


GHISLAINE Maxwell faces a “crushing experience” at a hellhole jail where inmates are out to do her harm, an ex-warden revealed.

Maxwell, 58, has been moved to the Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) in New York ahead of a court hearing on child sex abuse charges.

Now the Brooklyn jail’s former warden (governor) has revealed Jeffrey Epstein’s so-called pimp should prepare for the worst as fellow inmates will see attacking her as a  “badge of honour”.

Cameron Lindsay said: “You go from living a life like Maxwell to all of a sudden being in a situation where you’re being strip-searched and having people look into your body cavities.

“That is a crushing experience.”

Lindsay said prison officials will now have to decide whether or not to keep Maxwell in a 10-foot-by-12-foot cell alone or house her with another female prisoner.

A cellmate might help prevent her from attempting suicide, a fear following Epstein’s cell death, but Lindsay said the nature of her charges and her high profile will make her a target.

For other prisoners, injuring Maxwell “would be a badge of honor,” he told Reuters.

At the MDC, Maxwell will be issued a T-shirt and other basic clothing, a thin mattress, pillow and blanket.

She will undergo humiliating searches and be denied nearly all possessions – a far cry from the luxury lifestyle she has become accustomed to.

Maxwell may be allowed to have an approved religious medallion or book, such as the Bible, according to Lindsay.

Detainees “have nothing of their personal property,” he added.

Her new location, with a capacity of 1,600 men and women, has had its share of famous residents, including singer R. Kelly, accused of sex abuse.

Lindsay said the jail is well known among Bureau of Prison staff for its problems over the years.

He called it “one of the most troubled” federal facilities in the prison system with a “unique history of staff misconduct”.

The former cop was selected as warden of the MDC where he served for nearly three years before retiring from the federal government in 2009.

In 2007, 11 guards were charged with beating inmates in a horrific attack which left one prisoner’s cell covered with blood.

The jail also endured a sexual assault scandal, with a 2018 investigation leading to three prison officers being convicted of sexual abuse of female inmates.

In 2016 a judge expressed reluctance about sending women to the lock up because, she said, conditions made it sound like it was in “some third-world country”.

The Sun Online has already told how Maxwell was seen as a “depressed loner” in jail and has been branded a “snooty rich b****” by her fellow inmates at her previous jail in New Hampshire.

An insider revealed: “The general opinion of her at Merrimack was that she’s a snooty rich b****. Nobody wanted anything to do with her.

“Inmates knew who she was. It’s like high school – everyone gossips – but it doesn’t mean she’s a celebrity. She was a depressed loner.

“Those involved in sex crimes against children are generally hated and have to group together so they don’t get jumped.”

Earlier we reported how Maxwell’s every move will be monitored behind bars following the jail cell death of her former lover.

The Brit socialite has been transferred to the (MDC) ahead of a high-profile arraignment hearing pencilled in for Friday.

Jeffrey Epstein was arrested by the same US Attorneys Office last year – but killed himself before he faced justice on charges of sex trafficking.

Now a law-enforcement source has revealed prison officials in charge of the MDC in Brooklyn are determined to avoid a similar fate with Maxwell.

“They want to make sure she’ll stand trial,” a source told the New York Post before adding the Bureau of Prisons doesn’t want another “black eye.”

The 58-year-old will be guarded by the “highest security available” while behind bars, the source added.

She’ll be “shadowed by prison officers” when she moves around the jail and a surveillance camera will be trained on her cell, claimed the insider.

Maxwell will remain locked up at the MDC until a hearing when a judge will rule if she’ll stay behind bars until her trial or be given bail.

Jeffrey Epstein’s “pimp” left Merrimack County House of Corrections in New Hampshire during a top security operation in the early hours of Monday.

That move came after US Attorney General William Barr reportedly called prosecutors to warn them “no harm must come” to her.

Following Maxwell’s arrest, Spencer Kuvin – who represents several Epstein victims – said the Brit may take her own life behind bars but added powerful people may try and silence her.

He said: “It may be that she can’t handle the fear of what’s going to happen to her and takes matters into her own hands or there will be people who are very afraid of what she has to say.”

Maxwell was arrested by the FBI on suspicion of being part of Epstein’s sick sex trafficking ring on Thursday.

She has been indicted on multiple charges, including that she conspired to entice girls as young as 14 to engage in illegal sex acts with Epstein at Epstein’s residences in New York City, Florida, and New Mexico.

Prosecutors say the charges carry a potential penalty of up to 35 years in prison.

There was speculation Maxwell was going to be housed in the Metropolitan Corrections Centre (MCC) where Epstein killed himself.

His death – which denied his victims the chance to see justice done – saw the focus on the probe shift to Maxwell and his other associates.

Some however question whether Epstein did really kill himself, with conspiracy theories about his death continuing to rage.
