Ghislaine Maxwell’s Brooklyn jail cell is an unsanitary mess because of a broken sewage system at the jail — not because she doesn’t flush her toilet, as prosecutors have claimed, her attorney wrote in a new letter.
Maxwell’s attorney, Bobbi Sternheim, was responding in the letter to prosecutors, who claimed the accused madam has let her cell at the Metropolitan Detention Center go down the toilet — in part, by not flushing.
“The government’s letter provides the opportunity to flush out the persistent unsanitary conditions at the MDC, which long predate Ms. Maxwell’s detention,” Sternheim wrote in the letter filed Wednesday night in her Manhattan federal court criminal case.
Sternheim then went into detail about alleged sewage problems at the jail.
“This past weekend there was a pervasive stench of sewage in Ms. Maxwell’s unit necessitating guards to flush pipes by pouring water down open drains in an effort to trap and disperse gaseous emissions,”
