NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Efforts to move Ghislaine Maxwell from solitary confinement to general prison population were denied on Thursday, prosecutors told the judge overseeing her criminal case.

She won't be joining the "dorm-style" accommodations due to "safety, security, and the orderly functioning of the facility," according to the Bureau Of Prisons.


In a letter filed in Manhattan Federal Court earlier this week, attorney Christian Everdell claimed guards at the Metropolitan Detention Center, where Maxwell is being held, "constantly observe Ms. Maxwell and take notes on her every activity, including her phone conversations with defense counsel," the Daily News reported.
