Ghislaine Maxwell's lawyers have argued that she is being treated worse than other inmates in the New York federal jail, where she has been put under 24-hour surveillance and regular body scans, according to NBC News.

While Jeffrey Epstein died last summer leading up to a trial on charges of sex trafficking, Maxwell is being locked away at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn on charges of recruiting and grooming underage girls for Epstein to abuse.

"It has become apparent that the Bureau of Prison's (BOP) treatment of Ms. Maxwell is a reaction to the circumstances surrounding the pretrial detention and death of Mr. Epstein," the Monday court filing stated, adding that Maxwell wishes to be taken from solitary confinement and placed into the facility's general population so that she may begin preparation for her trial set to take place in July of 2021.

"These prison guards constantly observe Ms. Maxwell and take notes on her every activity, including her phone conversations with defense counsel," the filing continued.

Maxwell's lawyers stated that she was only recently taken off suicide watch, where she has been awoken every few hours and made to wear special clothing, NBC News reported.

"Ms. Maxwell does not seek special treatment at the MDC; but she does ask that she not be specially disfavored in her treatment in detention, especially when it comes to preparing her defense to conduct that allegedly took place over 25 years ago," the filing said.

Though the Bureau of Prisons declined to comment further on the court filing, a spokesman said that "for privacy, safety, and security reasons, the BOP does not release information on an individual inmate's conditions of confinement."

Maxwell is reportedly intending to cooperate with the FBI in "naming names" of others who were involved in Epstein's sex ring, and faces a maximum penalty of 35 years in prison if she is found guilty of all charges.
