Ghislaine Maxwell moved to New York Prison as source says ‘nothing can happen to her after Epstein debacle’


GHISLAINE Maxwell was transferred to New York today ahead of her trial on child sex abuse charges.

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

The US Marshals Service are thought to have co-ordinated her move from New Hampshire and she is now poised to become America’s most protected prisoner.

She is being held at Brooklyn’s tough Metropolitan Detention Centre before she appears in court on Friday.

The news 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.”

New Hampshire radio host Chris Ryan tweeted today: ‘According to sources Ghislaine Maxwell was being held at the Merrimack County House of Corrections…and was extradited to New York at 4:30 this morning.

‘She was transferred with an extensive security detail that included a helicopter.’

The Metropolitan Detention Centre has been rocked by problems in recent months.

In June, an inmate died after correctional officers sprayed him with pepper spray.

And in March, the jail had the federal prison system’s first inmate to test positive for coronavirus.

Maxwell, 58, was arrested by the FBI on suspicion of being part of Epstein’s sick sex trafficking ring on Thursday.

Maxwell 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 from 1994 through 1997 at Epstein’s residences in New York City, Florida, and New Mexico and at her home in London.

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

Prosecutors have asked a judge to schedule a Friday court appearance in New York for Maxwell.

They want her to remain in jail until her trial, labelling her an “extreme risk of flight”.

In a letter to a judge Sunday, prosecutors said they have communicated with Maxwell’s defense lawyer, Christian Everdell, who would like a Friday bail hearing after written arguments are submitted by both sides on Thursday and Friday.

She will also be arraigned at the hearing.

Prosecutors last week outlined some arguments to keep Maxwell detained.

They cited her access to over $20 million in 15 bank accounts in recent years, along with her extensive international ties and the likelihood of a lengthy prison sentence if she is convicted.

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

Epstein was being held on MCC’s Special Housing Unit, where he was meant to be under 24-hour monitoring and given daily psychiatric evaluations.

He was sent there after being found on the floor of his cell with neck injuries after an apparent attempted suicide.

Two guards were meant to check on him every 30 minutes, but reportedly this did not happen on the night of his death.

He was also meant to have a cellmate, but he had been transferred away and no replacement had been moved in.

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.
