Ghislaine Maxwell Punished For Murder Comments About Epstein

Convicted human trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, who is currently serving her prison sentence, was punished for an interview where she suggested her late boyfriend Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself.

Two weeks after her interview aired, Maxwell was put in solitary confinement for two days after prison authorities alleged that she profited from the media interview.

According to The Western Journal, Maxwell’s interview, which aired in late January, would have violated the terms of her 20-year federal prison sentence if she had received payment for the appearance.

Maxwell was going about her business when prison authorities came and cuffed her.

One source told The Daily Mail that Maxwell denied the accusation but was, however, marched off to the Special Housing Unit (SHU) — a ‘prison within a prison’ comprising tiny, grim cells where inmates are locked up for 23 hours at a time and fed through slits in the door.

The source added that the “prison within prison” looked like a little box, with occupants only allowed out to shower once a day. Inmates within this solitary confinement cannot make contact with anyone and don’t have privileges that their colleagues enjoy.

In the interview that preceded Maxwell’s punishment, she detailed some of the experiences that got her behind bars. The famous British woman worked with Epstein, who died a few years ago in holding. In her interview, Maxwell talked about Epstein’s death.

Commenting on the situation, Maxwell indicated that Epstein was murdered as against official reports that he committed suicide. She expressed how shocked she was to hear about Epstein’s death, claiming she was confident he would appeal. She added that he was covered under the non-prosecution agreement.

The interview also captures her regret for associating with Epstein, claiming she should have stayed in England.


Judge Alison J. Nathan sentenced Maxwell to 20 years in prison after being convicted of trafficking crimes involving minors.
