Ghislaine Maxwell wants to transfer from ‘disgrace’ US prison to ‘far superior’ UK one: family

Published

on

Ghislaine Maxwell will seek to serve most of her prison time in the UK to escape the “inhuman” conditions she has suffered in her Brooklyn lockup, according to her family.

Jeffrey Epstein’s notorious henchwoman — who faces up to 55 years in prison when sentenced later this month — believes British prisons are “far superior” to US ones, which are “a disgrace,” her family told The Telegraph.

“Inevitably, we want her to serve the sentence here in the UK,” one of the disgraced socialite’s brothers, Ian Maxwell, 66, told the UK paper.

“There is a program where overseas nationals can serve their time in the country of their nationality. There are precedents,” he said.

The family recently filed an appeal to the United Nations over her prison conditions in the US. They have yet to appeal her conviction to the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

Maxwell, who holds American, French and British citizenship, would then need to spend the first three years in a US prison before being able to apply to return to the UK, the paper noted.

“Ghislaine is fundamentally British despite having lived in the US for many years and having been born in France,” a close friend told The Times of London of the madam who has citizenship in all three nations.

“Given the vile prison conditions in the US, if I were her I would want to be transferred to any civilized country,” the friend said.

Maxwell, 60, spent nearly two years in solitary confinement before finally being moved into the general population of Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center last month, her brother previously revealed.

However, her brother said that he flew 3,000 miles to Brooklyn for a pre-arranged visit last Wednesday — just to be refused entry because it was put on lockdown over a fight there.

“I flew 6,000 miles for no reason,” he raged to The Telegraph at the time, calling the treatment “unreal,” “horrible” and “inhuman.”

“In two years, this girl has had one family visit … I feel very sorry for Ghislaine,” he told the UK paper.

It was just one of the key reasons for wanting Maxwell to eventually see out her sentencing in a UK prison, the brother and other sources said.

“She wants to be in the UK to be closer to her family so she can have family visits,” a source told The Mail on Sunday.

“The prisons in Britain are far superior to those in the US and the Brits treat prisoners more humanely. The American system is a disgrace.

“If she has to spend time in prison she would rather do it in the UK, where people are treated fairly and with a measure of decency.”

Actress Anne Heche Suffers Severe Burns After Crashing Car Into Los Angeles Home

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
