This has now led the inmates of the prison to draw a comparison between Andy Dufresne - the hero of 'The Shawshank Redemption' and Maxwell. She can now stay away from doing unsavory cooking and cleaning jobs that other inmates are forced to do in jail.

According to Mirror, in the movie, 'Shawshank Redemption', the hero, Andy Dufresne, portrayed by Tim Robbins, the main protagonist of the film was assigned the job of a librarian in the prison regardless of murdering his wife. Similarly, the former socialite who has been sentenced to jail for 20 years will now enjoy a cozy, luxurious life in jail. Meanwhile, in interaction with Mirror, an insider stated, "There are girls inside who have washed thousands of floors, peeled thousands of vegetables, done all manner of things, including keeping their noses clean, hoping for such a gig."

The source also added, “She is highly intelligent. The IQ of most of in there, you can imagine, is low, but all the girls know you have to earn the right for such a job.” "They joke she has done a Shawshank Redemption and landed on her feet with her library gig," the inside source said to the Mirror. The job will have a Monday to Friday schedule and will let her plenty of time to socialize with other inmates.

Dufresne in the film was innocent though the court sentenced him to jail. However, Maxwell is proven guilty of aiding prolific sex trafficker Jefferey Epstein and even joining in as he sexually abused underage children. The insider further stated, “Ghislaine’s life could not be more different. Gone are Prada clothes and foie gras. Her posh accent stands out a mile while she is surrounded by killers, drug runners, fraudsters, and other sex offenders. If only her pals could see her now.”

As per the rules, prisoners can earn money through various jobs or people can top up their accounts. Maxwell can now visit the store once a fortnight and spend a maximum of £306 at a time. The former socialite was convicted in December 2021. Judge Alison Nathan handed down the 240-month sentence followed by five years of supervised release after calling Maxwell's crimes "heinous and prefatory."
