INMATES at Ghislaine Maxwell’s prison was supposed to “beat her” when she was put behind bars.
The 60-year-old has lured vulnerable teenagers into vile millionaire Epstein to abuse his various luxury properties – with the pair being described as “criminal partners” .
Maxwell showed no emotion as she was jailed for 20 years earlier this week after apologizing to her victims.
She is scheduled to be jailed at the minimum security federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut that served as the inspiration for Orange is the New Black.
The detention will be considered a respite after the person spent 22 months incarcerated in the notorious Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn – considered one of the harshest prisons in the US.
The luxury prison will give Maxwell more freedom with features like a running track, a library, and even a gardening course.
But Jacqueline Polverari, who served less than a year in Danbury for mortgage fraud, warned inmates are bracing for the arrival of the famous new sentence.
She said the prison would “not be a picnic” for Maxwell with its maggot-infested food and toilet cleaning duties as well as concerns for her safety.
Polveari told the New York Post: “She’s going to have a hard time for six to eight months. I’ve received emails from women writing that they knew Maxwell was coming this way.
“They’re preparing for her arrival, have requested that they don’t want her in their dorm.
“And the camp counselor won’t put Maxwell where she doesn’t want to, lest she get hurt.”
Polveari also warned: “Women are worse than men at sex crimes. You have a mother there.
“They see a white woman accused of sex and they think any of their children could be her victims.
“She’ll be flaking a lot. She’ll be blown away many times.”
The prison – which houses 1,049 male and female inmates – has a number of good programs available to inmates, including vocational training in culinary arts and horticulture and apprenticeships in baking, carpentry, animal training and painting. painting.
According to experts, Epstein’s ex would feel like being in “Disneyland” if locked up in federal prison.
Before her trial, Maxwell’s lawyers repeatedly – and unsuccessfully – tried to convince the judge to release her on bail, complaining that she was suffering a “hell on earth”.
She made a sensational speech from her “shabby, shabby” cell, claiming that “scary” guards had been watching her as she used the bathroom.
Her lawyers even argued that her prison conditions were only suitable for fictional serial killer Hannibal Lecter, saying her continued detention was “unacceptable and unreasonable”. .
Announcing the sentence for Maxwell on Tuesday, Judge Nathan said her victims were forced to live through the “painful, terrible and lasting impact of that trauma”.
She continued: “The damage to these girls is incalculable.
“Those who participate in and facilitate sexual abuse will be held accountable to the law. Whether you are rich or powerful, no one is above the law.”
Wearing a prison-issued uniform, Maxwell apologized to her victims, saying she hoped her sentence would allow them “peace and at last”.
She told Epstein the court meeting was her “biggest regret”.
Maxwell said: “It is difficult for me to speak in court after hearing the pain and anguish expressed in the statements made here today.
“I believe Jeffrey Epstein is a manipulative, cunning and controlling man, living a deeply orderly life and deceiving all in his orbit.”
Judge Nathan also fined the heir $750,000 (£615k) and said her sentence would be imposed after five years of supervised release.
Maxwell will likely ask to move to the UK after serving three years of his sentence.
