BREAKING: Prosecutors Demand Maxwell Serve 30 Years Behind Bars


Ghislaine Maxwell is set to be sentenced today.

Prosecutors are demanding the disgraced socialite spend a minimum of 30 years behind bars, but she could potentially be facing a 55-year prison term.

Maxwell’s legal counsel claims that an inmate was allegedly planning to strangle Maxwell in exchange for a sum of cash.

When questioned, the inmate said that the sum of money she would have received in exchange for killing Maxwell would have been worth the additional 20 years she spent in prison.

Maxwell has since been transferred to a special housing unit, for her own safety, and has been placed under suicide watch.

Additionally, legal representation for Maxwell issued a laundry list of claims attesting to the conditions of her confinement, presumably, to sway the court into issuing a more lenient sentence.

Here’s what we currently know:

Reporting live from the scene, The New York Post provided this update:

Prosecutors have asked Judge Alison Nathan to slap Ghislaine Maxwell with at least 30 and up to 55 years in prison — what could be an effective life sentence for the 60-year-old convicted sex-trafficker.

The defense, meanwhile, said that by their calculations, the correct sentencing range is around four to five years.


Zero Hedge explains:

Nathan said that the calculation for sentencing will hinge on whether evidence showed criminal conduct after Nov. 1, 2004 – and that there isn’t evidence to support the higher-recommended guidelines of 30 – 50 years.

This means Maxwell will likely receive the more lenient guidelines calculation, which would result in less than 20 years in prison.
