Ghislaine Maxwell 'Learning Russian’ While on ‘Suicide Watch’ in Jail
Convicted child sex trafficker faces 65 years in prison when sentenced in June
Convicted child sex trafficker and madam of the late Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, is learning Russian while in prison to maintain her “sanity,” according to reports.
Maxwell, who was found guilty last year on five counts of child sex trafficking, is currently in solitary confinement at New York’s Metropolitan Detention Center.
The former British socialite faces 65 years in jail when sentenced in June.
Maxwell, who is currently on suicide watch, is only allowed paper clothing and is banned from having books.
“She can’t even have a pen and paper,” an insider said.
“The conditions are appalling. She’s checked every 15 minutes throughout the day and night.”
“They shine a flashlight into her cell all night which makes it impossible to sleep," they added.
Maxwell is allowed to use a laptop for a few hours a day to learn Russian using a CD language course.
The source added:
“It’s helping her to keep her mind focused.
"Studying is helping maintain her sanity.”
A former governor once described the prison she is being held in as “the most troubled federal facility in the prison system.”
Maxwell was convicted of sex trafficking girls for billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who was found dead in his jail cell in 2019.
Maxwell’s lawyers argue she was prosecuted "by proxy" and demanded a retrial after two jurors admitted using their own experience of sexual abuse to sway other jurors.
Last year, Maxwell emerged from prison with an unexplained black eye.
According to her close friends, Maxwell also expressed fears she would also be “suicided” in jail.
The convicted sex trafficker also said she believed Epstein was murdered in his Manhattan prison cell last year because he knew too much.
Maxwell reportedly told her friends that she feared she will also be found dead in jail before exposing her powerful allies.
Epstein himself reportedly said he was "not suicidal" and "never would be" just days before his death.
Neon Nettle reported the explosive documents were obtained by the New York Times last year.
The disgraced Democrat financier told the jail staff he was not suicidal before he was found dead in 2019.
Last week, Neon Nettle reported Maxwell decided to expose the identities of eight powerful men linked to Epstein’s crimes.
Her legal team revealed she would no longer protect the names of “eight John Does” who allegedly raped Epstein’s sex trafficking victims.
