A lawyer for the victims of Jeffrey Epstein believes Ghislaine Maxwell will also die in prison because she knows too much.
Epstein’s alleged pimp was arrested by the FBI on Thursday on six charges of sex trafficking and perjury.
Following her arrest, Spencer Kuvin who represents several of the late-paedo’s victims in Florida, said the Brit, 58, may take her own life behind bars but also added that powerful people may try and silence her.
He told the Daily Mail – It may be that she can’t handle the fear of what’s going to happen to her and takes matters into her own hands or there will be people who are very afraid of what she has to say.
The socialite, who is the daughter of disgraced media mogul Robert Maxwell, faces up to 35 years in prison if she is found guilty of the charges, it has been reported.
And Kuvin believes if she is jailed, Ghislaine will spend the rest of her life behind bars.
He said – I don’t think she is going to get out of jail alive. I said the same thing about Jeffrey Epstein and people laughed at me.
I think she knows way too much information – I just have this gut feeling.
It took the FBI around 11 months, following Epstein’s arrest at the end of July last year, to finally apprehend Maxwell.
And it’s believed Ghislaine’s vast network of well-connected friends could have helped her hide and enabled her to buy a mansion in New Hampshire using $1m cash.
She is currently detained in Merrimack County Jail in Boscawen, New Hampshire, but will soon be transferred to a tough New York prison.
Maxwell has not entered a plea but strongly denies any allegations of sexual misconduct made against her.
This comes after it emerged last night that Ghislaine is on suicide watch after swapping her extraordinary life of luxury for a cramped jail cell.
The socialite’s every move was being monitored at Merrimack County Jail, sources have told The Sun.
A prison source said – Given the death of Jeffrey Epstein in jail, everybody is obviously concerned about making sure nothing happens to Ghislaine Maxwell.
Her security is a top priority. The case is being handled extremely sensitively.
