Ghislaine Maxwell expected to appear in Manhattan this week for arraignment

News Today || US Updates:

Ghislaine Maxwell is expected to be transferred early this week to the Southern District of New York for her upcoming court appearance, according to a new letter filed by federal prosecutors on Sunday night.

Maxwell, 58, is currently at the Merrimack County Jail, a medium-security facility 20 miles from the luxurious home where she was arrested Thursday in New Hampshire.

Federal prosecutors consulted with Maxwell’s attorneys and both want the arraignment and bail hearing to take place on Friday, according to the letter addressed to Judge Alison J. Nathan.

“The Government has consulted with defense counsel, Christian Everdell, Esq., who has requested that the arraignment, initial appearance, and bail hearing in this matter take place on July 10, 2020,” says the letter.

The government and the defense counsel also requested time to discuss a protective order with the judge before Maxwell appears in court.

“Such a protective order will be necessary to facilitate the production of discovery while also protecting, among other things, the privacy and identity of third parties, including victims of the conduct charged in the Indictment,” the letter says.

The British socialite may be held at Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention, according to law-enforcement sources.

Maxwell’s ex-lover, the late Jeffrey Epstein, killed himself in August in a Manhattan jail cell while awaiting a fresh sex-trafficking case.
