Ghislaine Maxwell ‘to request that the majority of her 55-year sentence for child sex trafficking be served in the United Kingdom so that she can be closer to her family.’

GHISLAIN MAXWELL is expected to request that the majority of her sentence for child sex trafficking be served in the United Kingdom so that she can be closer to her family.

After being convicted of five of six counts of sex trafficking for vile Jeffrey Epstein’s paedophile ring, the disgraced socialite faces a maximum sentence of 55 years in prison.


After being held at the “hellhole” Metropolitan Detention Centre in Brooklyn, New York, she will be sentenced on June 28.

According to US law, Maxwell must serve the first three years of his sentence in prison in the United States before applying to return to the United Kingdom.

She will submit her request “as soon as she is able,” according to a source who spoke to The Mail on Sunday, in order to be closer to her family.

The convicted sex trafficker, who is 60 years old, is said to want to serve the majority of her lengthy sentence in a comfortable British prison.

She also hopes that being back on American soil will allow her to be “treated fairly,” despite her frequent complaints about the American prison system.

“She wants to be in the UK because she wants to be closer to her family and have family visits,” the source explained.

“British prisons are far superior to those in the United States, and prisoners are treated more humanely by the British.”

“The American system is a disgrace.

“If she must serve time in prison, she would prefer to do so in the United Kingdom, where people are treated fairly and with some decency.”

Maxwell was recently released from solitary confinement for the first time in two years, just weeks before her sentencing.

She has been under constant surveillance since her arrest in July 2020, amid fears that she will commit suicide before her trial, as her paedo pals did.

However, the sex predator is now housed in a cell with other inmates and will soon be able to see her family and friends.

Her family, who had previously expressed dissatisfaction with the way her sex predator sister had been treated by prison staff, has applauded the decision, which means she will be allowed to visit her sister again.

Maxwell’s brother, Ian, claimed that his sister was woken up every 15 minutes by guards with a torch and that she was constantly monitored by a camera.

He also claims that she was physically abused by guards, and that her treatment was in violation of the “Nelson Mandela Rules” for prisoner welfare.


“Finally, I’ll be able to see Ghislaine,” her brother Ian said. We haven’t had any meaningful interactions apart from a few seconds of snatched conversation at the courthouse bar.

“Because she was released into the general population, I’ll be able to do that.”

“She’s still in MDC, but she’s in the general population,” he continued.

“There are risks involved, but she has escaped the ‘Shu’ [segregated housing unit] and the torture she has endured.

“I admire her determination and the fact that she has kept her head held high.”

He claimed that being in a “dormitory-style” cell would provide some company for his sister.

After being convicted of trafficking young girls to have sex with Epstein, Maxwell could face up to 55 years in prison.

Between 1994 and 2004, she assisted Epstein in luring vulnerable teenagers to his various properties where he sexually abused them.

In December, a New York jury found the former socialite guilty of sex trafficking charges, and she will be sentenced at the end of the month.

Virginia Giuffre is among the victims who have said they intend to attend Epstein’s sentencing.

Maxwell has constantly complained about prison life since her arrest in July 2020
