Maxwell Assaulted In Jail
Lawyers for Ghislaine Maxwell are screaming that their client was assaulted by a guard during a routine search and is withering away behind bars. Attorney Bobbi Sternheim filed a complaint in New York District Court, alleging that Maxwell’s pre-trial detention conditions at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn are beyond despicable. She claims Maxwell is being deprived of sleep and being fed inedible food. Says Shaun Attwood, “Welcome to jail! Being deprived of sleep? Given inedible food? That is happening in jails all across America.”
Sternheim says the assault came during a pat-down search in an isolation cell out of camera view. When Maxwell said she would report the incident, she was threatened with disciplinary action. “When you go to jail with charges of this nature, not only do you have nothing coming, you also are subjected to the most wicked–and some would say justified–abuse by the prisoners, the conduct code and the guards,” Attwood says.
Though it appears Maxwell is headed toward a plea bargain in her case, Attwood says it would be to her advantage to go to trial and name names in the sordid Jeffrey Epstein sex-trafficking saga. Here’s more with Attwood.
