[Ed. – This has been watched closely, with observers assuming Maxwell wouldn’t be sent to the same lock-up Epstein died in, in Manhattan. The MDC in Brooklyn is in the Eastern District of New York jurisdiction, not SDNY.]
Jeffrey Epstein confidant Ghislaine Maxwell has been transferred from a New Hampshire jail to a federal lockup in New York City, officials said.
The accused madam — who was arrested last week for allegedly helping procure underage girls for Epstein to sexually abuse — was moved from the 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 judge to set her arraignment in Manhattan court for Friday.
