A lawyer for Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite chargedwith finding girls in the 1990s for financier Jeffrey Epstein to sexually abuse, said her client is awakened every 15 minutes in jail while she sleeps to ensure she’s breathing. Attorney Bobbi Sternheim said Maxwell faces more restrictive conditions than inmates convicted of terrorism or murder. She asked a judge to intervene on her client’s behalf to improve her conditions at the Metropolitan Detention Center. US District Judge Alison J. Nathan instructed defense lawyers and prosecutors to confer over the next week.
