Is Maxwell being beat?

The first photo of Ghislaine Maxwell from prison was revealed in court papers released Thursday.

Maxwell, 59, is standing trial in New York City for accusations that she helped traffic and groom young girls for sexual abuse by deceased multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein.

A three-judge panel previously rejected several bail requests by Maxwell’s lawyers, who argued that she was being deprived of sleep while incarcerated due to wellness checks by corrections officers.

In a filing from Thursday afternoon, Maxwell’s attorney Bobbi Sternheim said the defendant noticed a black eye last night and was then confronted by Metropolitan Detention Center officers who demanded to know how she got it.

Maxwell claims she does not know the cause of the black eye. However, Sternheim stated in the court filing that Maxwell “has grown increasingly reluctant to report information to the guards for fear of retaliation, discipline and punitive chores.”
