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.
