Ghislaine Maxwell, the alleged ‘madam’ for Jeffrey Epstein, has been convicted by the guards in the prison where she is being held by the guards in the prison where she is being held, convicted by the guards for not flushing her toilet and having her cell filthy abandoned.
Employees at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York, noted that the British socialite “ often didn’t flush her toilet after using it, causing the cell to smell, ” prosecutors said in a letter filed with federal court.
The document also revealed that Maxwell received the coronavirus vaccination while in custody and that she is ‘physically healthy’ after complaining last month that she was held in ‘adverse’ conditions.
Maxwell, 59, had claimed in an application from her attorney that she was forced to drink dirty tap water and that a security guard “ physically assaulted ” her while on a search awaiting trial.

The new letter is signed by three American assistant attorneys, including Maurene Comey, the daughter of former FBI director James Comey.
“MDC employees ordered the defendant to clean her cell because it had become very dirty,” the letter read.
It continues: ‘MDC employees noted, among other things, that the suspect often did not flush her toilet after use, which caused the cell to smell.
Moreover, the suspect had not cleaned her cell for some time, so the cell became increasingly dirty. MDC personnel ordered the defendant to clean her cell in response to the smell and filth, not in retaliation for complaining about a particular search.
The rest of the letter aims to debunk all of the claims made by Maxwell’s attorneys, who claimed last week that her treatment would be appropriate for Hannibal Lecter, the fictional serial killer in The Silence of the Lambs.
Defense attorney Bobbi Sternheim had written in a letter to US District Judge Alison Nathan that Maxwell, as a result of the prison conditions, “languishes in a shell of her former self – losing weight, losing her, and losing her powers of concentration.”
Sternheim claimed that Maxwell is losing weight because she is not fed properly and that she is woken up by a flashlight every 15 minutes.
The letter states that MDC employees “did not observe that the suspect experienced any noticeable hair loss,” despite what her attorneys said.
Maxwell’s weight has fluctuated between 133 lbs and 137 lbs, meaning that even her lowest weight gives her a BMI of 20.8, which is considered ‘normal’ for a person who is 5’7 ‘tall.
“Most recently, when the defendant was weighed in last week, she weighed 137.5 pounds,” the letter reads.

The letter admits that tap water can turn brown for a few seconds when New York City engineers are servicing nearby.
The tap water available in the MDC is supplied by New York City. As a result, on occasions where the municipality has carried out maintenance in the vicinity of the MDC, the water has been temporarily cut off, ‘the letter reads.
On those days, prisoners, including Maxwell, are given bottled water.
“ After the water is turned back on, the water is sometimes cloudy or brown and has to run for a few seconds before it becomes clear, ” reads the letter.
The letter states that ‘MDC employees, including the legal staff, drink the same tap water from the same water system as the defendant in the institution’.
Prosecutors refuted claims that Maxwell’s meals arrive cold, noting, “ Meals arrive in containers that are both microwave-safe and oven-safe. Currently, the defendant’s meals are heated in a thermal oven. ‘
Comey denied that Maxwell had been searched, saying that every 15 minutes with the flashlight the light shone on the ceiling so that they could see Maxwell in her bed and “enough to confirm that the defendant is breathing.”
Plus, Maxwell wears an eye mask and “ regularly sleeps through these nighttime wellness checks, ” the letter states.
Billionaire Epstein died in 2019 after allegedly hanging himself at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan.
In 2008, Epstein was convicted in Florida of having a child for prostitution and of looking for a prostitute after reaching a plea deal with prosecutors.
He was charged with raping dozens of young teenage girls between 2002 and 2005. The girls were reportedly cared for by his partner Maxwell – who in 2020 was accused of seduction of minors and sex trafficking of underage girls.
Epstein was arrested again in July 2019 on federal sex trafficking charges in Florida and New York, just a month before his death.
Victims have claimed that Epstein would fly his underage victims on his private jet, nicknamed the Lolita Express, to his private island of Little St. James, which has often been visited by other elites such as Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew.
Maxwell has complained that the search of her body is invasive, claiming in February that it amounted to physical abuse.
Prosecutors said the pat-down in question was on camera, and after reviewing the footage, the MDC concluded that the search had been “ properly conducted and the defendant’s complaint about that incident was unfounded. ”
Prosecutors said Maxwell receives five hours of video conference calls with her counsel every weekday “for a total of 25 hours of attorney VTC calls per week” and “still gets more time to review the discovery than any other inmate.”
The letter adds that Maxwell “has received a COVID-19 vaccine and is now fully vaccinated – in short, MDC medical staff assess the suspect as physically healthy.”
Maxwell has been in prison since she was arrested last July and charged with seducing underage girls into abuse for Epstein. She is also charged with perjury in a separate civil case.
Last month, she was hit by two new charges: conspiracy for sex trafficking and sex trafficking of a minor. She has pleaded not to be guilty of all charges.
