The living conditions of Ghislaine Maxwell may be rather more favorable than previously imagined. In reality, Maxwell may be able to enjoy a life of relative opulence behind bars, with access to yoga and other opulent luxuries.
Maxwell, who was sentenced to 20 years in jail for her participation in Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking activities, was initially scheduled to do her time at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut.
Reportedly, the facility is notorious for its deplorable living conditions, including maggot-infested food and shared 8-by-8-foot quarters.
According to the New York Post, Maxwell would instead be transferred to a “low-security federal correctional institution” in Florida.
Maxwell will have access to a number of “recreation, leisure, and social programs” intended to “assist in the development of an individual wellness concept.”
Also included are several “programs of occupational training, including apprenticeships, horticultural courses, and even cosmetology courses.”
“Programs include indoor and outdoor activities, ranging from specialized arts and crafts programs to intramural team sports like softball, basketball, and volleyball,” according to the prison’s guidebook, as cited by the Post.
Maxwell will be able to participate in her favorite activities, including talent shows, art courses, frisbee, flag football, pilates, and yoga.
Inmates have access to a variety of personal things, including books, periodicals, newspapers, MP3 players, radios, watches, and alarm clocks.
The Post remarked that the transfer is “surprising” because Alison Nathan, Maxwell’s sentencing judge, recommended she be transferred to FCI Danbury.
Nevertheless, the Bureau of Prisons reported Maxwell’s relocation on Friday.

One representative told the Post that the reason for Maxwell’s change in facilities would not be disclosed.
“For privacy, safety, and security reasons, we do not discuss any individual inmate’s condition of confinement to include designation decisions or reasons for transfer,” the representative said.
The public is none too pleased with the news, with many on Twitter voicing their disapproval of Maxwell’s upgrade in living conditions. CONTINUE READING…
