According to court documents obtained by Radar, Maxwell’s legal team filed a list of issues their client is currently dealing with while locked up in a Brooklyn jail.
As we previously reported, Maxwell is awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges and has been unsuccessful in her pleas for release. She has been behind bars since her July 2020 arrest.
Prosecutors accuse her of playing a major role in recruiting young girls for Epstein to abuse. The late billionaire, who committed suicide while awaiting his own trial, reportedly liked to pay girls to give him sexual massages.
Prosecutors believe Maxwell is a flight risk and has the resources to flee if released on bond. The judge presiding over her criminal case has agreed with the government’s stance thus far.
Maxwell continues to try to convince the judge to let her out. She says the conditions in jail are horrific and has accused prison officials of mistreatment.
They admitted documents were seized but only because her lawyers violated rules, a claim her lawyers denied. The government claims Maxwell is not being mistreated while locked up. She says they have it all wrong.
In newly filed documents, Maxwell says it was only last week that “raw sewage permeated” into her isolation cell which caused her to be moved to another cell.
She says “Vermin droppings fell from air vents” into her cell. Epstein’s pal still has issues with the guards. She says they are not allowing her full access to her legal documents which she needs to review ahead of her trial.
She says the prison officials have been doing everything in their power to make it hard for her to have meetings with her lawyers.
She says the guards are constantly watching her around the clock. Her lawyer listed a recent incident they had while visiting Maxwell.
He wrote, “At one point, a prison guard interrogated counsel about what she was doing with her hands. (Counsel was blotting a bleeding finger with note paper.) Maxwell hates the flashlight check every 15 minutes at night, claiming she can never get sleep. The government has yet to respond to the recent complaints about Maxwell’s prison conditions.
