Ghislaine Maxwell put in Covid-19 quarantine, can leave cell for only 90 minutes a week as jail guard tests positive
The alleged madam of late convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein had tested negative for Covid-19 on November 18 and has shown no symptoms of the virus
Ghislaine Maxwell is now in Covid-19 quarantine after a prison staff tested positive for the virus last week. It has been reported that Maxwell will be allowed to leave her cell for three breaks of 30 minutes per week, while she remains quarantined at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn for the next 14 days. The alleged madam of late convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein had tested negative for Covid-19 on November 18 and has shown no symptoms of the virus, according to Assistant US Attorney Maurene Comey in a letter which was filed in Manhattan Federal Court. Maxwell is currently awaiting trial after she had been charged with grooming victims for Jeffrey Epstein to later exploit and abuse.
Her defense team had said that it has been difficult for Maxwell to prepare for defense while living through pandemic protocols in MDC and while putting special measures in place to prevent herself from committing suicide as Epstein had done.
However, attorney Comey has countered the claims made by the defense saying that it was not the case at all. Comey shared, "As was the case three months ago, the defendant continues to have more time to review her discovery than any other inmate at the MDC, even while in quarantine." "The defendant also has as much, if not more, time as any other MDC inmate to communicate with her attorneys, even while in quarantine," Comey added.
Due to the raging coronavirus pandemic, attorney visitations to federal jails have only just begun post a lockdown since the beginning of March. Family visits are also not being entertained currently due to the pandemic. There is also a current lawsuit regarding the MDC's response to the pandemic.
We had earlier reported that an unnamed witness in federal court papers unsealed on Saturday, November 21, claimed that Jeffrey Epstein's right-hand woman Ghislaine Maxwell “constantly” snapped photos of topless girls by swimming pools. The witness who was identified as 'Jane Doe 1' in court papers revealed that she had a high-tech camera and the half nude shots were stored in an album which she had kept on her desk. Maxwell has constantly denied all the allegations that have been made against her. Maxwell’s sordid sex life will no longer be a secret as a court has ruled to make public “highly intrusive” documents from Jeffrey Epstein's deposition. The documents reportedly include new details of her sex life, which were originally filed by Epstein victim Virginia Roberts as part of a lawsuit against Maxwell in 2015. The British socialite was sued by Roberts, now Giuffre, five years ago for calling her a liar.
A new report has revealed that a plea deal between public prosecutors and Jeffrey Epstein has given immunity to Ghislaine Maxwell, who is awaiting trial for pimping out girls as young as 14 for the disgraced financier. It has been said that the prosecutors from the Southern District of Florida (SDFL) failed to notice that the plea deal was made not only to protect Epstein’s four female associates in 2007 but also to keep the British socialite safe.
