Ghislaine Maxwell was found guilty in 2021 of child sex trafficking and other offenses in connection with the financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. She was convicted on charges she had groomed girls for Epstein between 1994 and 2004 that he abused. She is set to be sentenced on June 28, but that may not happen as scheduled.
The reason her sentencing may not go forward on June 28 is that she has been placed on suicide watch, reports the New York Post. According to her attorney, Bobby Sternheim however, Maxwell is not suicidal. A psychologist evaluated Maxwell and confirmed that she is not suicidal, Reuters reports.
Her attorney is so concerned about this development that he wrote a letter to U.S. Circuit Judge Alison Nathan, who is presiding over his client’s case. He wrote, “If Ms. Maxwell remains on suicide watch, is prohibited from reviewing legal materials prior to sentencing, becomes sleep-deprived, and is denied sufficient time to meet with and confer with counsel, we will be formally moving on Monday for an adjournment.” The letter included information that officials at a Brooklyn federal prison suddenly placed Maxwell in solitary confinement last Friday and told her she was on suicide watch, reports Reuters.
On suicide watch, Maxwell’s clothing, soap, toothpaste and papers were removed from her, her attorney said. The action of placing his client on suicide watch could result in her being unable to prepare properly for her sentencing hearing.
Many believe that Maxwell and Epstein trafficked underage girls to the rich and famous. Prince Andrew is connected to them and people believe others are as well, including Bill Clinton. Here is what one person tweeted: “Ghislaine Maxwell was found guilty of sex trafficking children. A judge refuses to release the list of who she sold them to. Now she is on suicide watch. Until the list is released, there’s only one conclusion.. all of them are on it.. every *Bill*ionaire, prince and politician.”
Another concern about this development is the fact that Jeffery Epstein, Maxwell’s one-time boyfriend and close friend, allegedly killed himself while he was awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges, the same charges Maxwell was convicted of. Many question whether Epstein actually committed suicide. While nothing has been proven that Epstein was murdered while in jail, there is evidence that he was not properly protected while there, reported, Rolling Stone.
It’s not that difficult of a stretch to believe that people who once lived such lavish lives, would become suicidal once their sins are discovered and they find themselves in jail for the rest of their lives. It’s also quite interesting that there is a list out there, that a judge refuses to release, of who Epstein and Maxwell sold these underage girls to. Why do you think she would be placed on suicide watch if she’s not suicidal, and who do you think is on that list?
