Ghislaine Maxwell transferred to low-security prison in Florida

Ghislaine Maxwell has been moved to a low-security prison in Florida to serve out her 20-year sentence for helping the late Jeffrey Epstein traffic young women and girls to be sexually abused.

The disgraced socialite was moved to Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) Tallahassee, according to the Bureau of Prisons. Maxwell, 60, will be eligible for release on July 17, 2037, when she is 75.

Maxwell maintains her innocence to this day and appealed her conviction and sentence earlier this month.

Since her arrest in July 2020, Maxwell has been held at the Metropolitan Detention Centre in New York, where her lawyers say she was subject to “reprehensible” conditions.
