Ghislaine Maxwell has put on suicide watch before her sentencing.
Her attorneys claim she is not suicidal.
Ghislaine Maxwell has been placed on suicide watch just days before her sentencing hearing, despite not being suicidal, her attorneys announced.
Maxwell, who was convicted of helping ex-lover Jeffrey Epstein sexually abuse girls, is scheduled to have a sentencing hearing on Tuesday.
Prosecutors are pushing for a sentence of 30 to 55 years for Maxwell, who is 60, after she was previously found guilty on five of six criminal counts.
The lawyers for Ghislaine Maxwell are claiming that her cellmate has said she was offered money to kill Maxwell.
This revelation comes as she seeks a lighter sentence in her case.
Ghislaine Maxwell’s lawyers say her cellmate has claimed multiple times that she had been offered money to kill the Jeffrey Epstein accomplice.
Maxwell’s lawyers made the allegation in a Wednesday court filing, which sought to secure a lighter sentence in their case. Maxwell was convicted on five of six counts against her in December, with the most severe charge being sex trafficking of minors.
“One of the female inmates in Ms Maxwell’s housing unit told at least three other inmates that she had been offered money to murder Ms Maxwell and that she planned to strangle her in her sleep,” the filing read, adding that the inmate claimed the payment had been worth “an additional 20 years’ incarceration.”
The inmate was moved to another unit of the prison.
