Ghislaine Maxwell claims 'creepy' jail guards watch her in the shower and a 'friendly' rat visits her on the toilet
GHISLAINE Maxwell has sensationally spoken out from her jail cell ahead of her trial – claiming “creepy” guards watch her as she uses the bathroom.
The heiress is set to go on trial in the US later this month accused of sex trafficking several victims for disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.
Socialite Maxwell, 59, has now claimed that she is being watched by guards and her only company is the rats near to the open sewer drain in her cell.
The alleged madam has had her bail rejected for the sixth time, despite moaning that she is being treated like “Hannibal Lecter.”
In her first ever interview from behind bars she has claimed that she is being kept in “inhumane” solitary confinement the entire time.
Speaking to the Mail On Sunday she said: “I used to go to the loo with an open sewer drain and a friendly rat would regularly visit.
“I told the guards, but nothing was done until the rat popped out and charged a guard who screamed in terror.
“Finally, the sewer drain was covered.”
Maxwell, who is accused of helping to find teenage girls for billionaire financier Epstein to abuse, denies sex trafficking charges.
She added: “I used to take a shower every day but I've stopped because of the creepy guards who stand close and stare at me the whole time.”
Her lawyers argue her jail conditions are fit only for fictional serial killer Lecter, and say her continued imprisonment is “untenable and unreasonable”.
A motion filed in April this year alleges Maxwell has been subject to "invasive searches".
She is served "inedible" food and her water is often cloudy, they say.
It's also claimed she was forced to crawl on her hands and knees to get into a prison van.
She was arrested in July 2020 and has maintained her innocence ever since.
Her detention means she has spent longer behind bars awaiting trial than Epstein, who was found hanged in his New York prison cell in 2019.
'VICIOUS, PURE EVIL'
Maxwell denies recruiting and trafficking underage girls for Epstein to abuse from 1994 to 1997.
She indicated her witnesses may include Dr Park Dietz, a psychologist who evaluated serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.
Maxwell faces a maximum of 80 years in prison if found guilty of abusing and procuring young girls for Epstein.
Jury selection for her trial begins on Monday morning, with her six week trial set to start on November 29.
Her relationship with Prince Andrew will also be put back on display for the courtroom to hear evidence on.
Virginia Roberts is expected to face Maxwell across the courtroom, and claims that she was “sex trafficked” to the Prince three times when she was 17 and therefore underage.
Prince Andrew vehemently denies all claims and insists he cannot remember ever meeting Ms Roberts.
Ms Roberts has described Maxwell as a monster adding: “She's vicious, pure evil.
"Epstein was a sick paedophile but Ghislaine was the mastermind.”
