When Jeffrey Epstein died in a Manhattan correctional facility some months ago, it was both an infuriating and disheartening reality of trying to find justice in the face of unbridled wealth.
Epstein stood accused, once again, of child sex trafficking after having beaten similar charges back in 2008 with the help of a bizarre and ultra-lenient sentence in Florida. This time around, the American people hoped and prayed that justice would finally be served for his plethora of victims.
This was not to be the case, as Epstein later died under mysterious circumstances in an alleged “suicide”. His victims were left with only partial closure on account of his death, and those who were following the case were enraged at the fact that authorities could not keep the world’s most notorious prisoner alive.
It appears as though they won’t be making the same mistake with Epstein’s purported “pimp” Ghislaine Maxwell.
The Brit socialite has been transferred to New York’s tough Metropolitan Detention Centre (MDC) ahead of a high-profile court hearing on child sex charges.
“They want to make sure she’ll stand trial,” a source told the New York Post before adding the Bureau of Prisons doesn’t want another “black eye.”
The 58-year-old will be guarded by the “highest security available” while behind bars, the source added.
She’ll be “shadowed by prison officers” when she moves around the jail and a surveillance camera will be trained on her cell, claimed the insider.
The Sun Online has already told how Maxwell was seen as a “depressed loner” in jail and has been branded a “snooty rich b****” by her fellow inmates at her previous jail in New Hampshire.
Given just how many high profile acquaintances Maxwell and Epstein kept, there is little doubt that such a trial would be both explosive and unnerving for much of the world.
