Maxwell behind bars in New York

Orange is the new black for Ghislaine Maxwell. The former Jeffrey Epstein confidant has been transferred from a New Hampshire jail to a federal lockup in New York City, officials said.

The accused procurer — who was arrested last week for allegedly helping procure underage girls for Epstein to sexually abuse — was moved from Merrimack County House of Corrections to the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, US Bureau of Prisons officials confirmed.

On Sunday, prosecutors asked a Manhattan federal court judge to set her arraignment in Manhattan court for Friday.

The Post previously reported that Maxwell could end up in the Sunset Park lockup instead of the Lower Manhattan Metropolitan Correctional Center federal prison where Epstein killed himself in a cell last August.

“After the debacle with Epstein, nothing can happen to her,” a source told The New York Post on Saturday.

The source added a plea deal is possible if Maxwell “has proof which will lead to the conviction of bigger fish.” Prosecutors have left that option on the table, even though Maxwell faces two counts of perjury in addition to four child sex-trafficking-related charges.
