Ghislaine Maxwell has been spotted exercising at the low-security US prison which she now calls home. The former socialite and friend of late paedophile Jeffery Epstein was sentenced to 20 years in prison after she was convicted on five charges, including sex trafficking, last year.
The 60-year-old was pictured running around a 400 metre track wearing a standard-issue grey T-shirt, matching shorts and trainers.
The uniformed prison guards and razor wire are a far cry away from Fifth Avenue where the former socialite used to rub shoulders with New York City’s elite.
Maxwell is a fitness fanatic, who sometimes beats younger inmates in a race.
A prison source told The Mirror: “Ghislaine is incredibly fit.
“She runs almost every day, and when not jogging on the track, she will walk with one of her friends.
“For her age, she is incredibly active and does a 40 minutes session completing lap after lap without stopping before she needs to be back inside.”
Maxwell is said to be enjoying a “semblance of freedom” and stays outside when she is not working in the prison’s law library.
She was convicted of enticing young girls to be groomed by paedophile Jeffery Epstein.
Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in prison after being found guilty on five counts, including trafficking underage girls for sexual abuse.
Her crimes are considered too serious for her to be put in a so-called “open prison” usually reserved for white collar criminals.

Her associate Jeffery Epstein killed himself in his Manhattan cell while awaiting his own sex trafficking trial in August 2019.
“I empathize deeply with all of the victims in this case. I also acknowledge that I have been convicted of helping Jeffrey Epstein commit these crimes,” Maxwell said at the sentencing hearing in New York.
She added: “Jeffrey Epstein should have been here before all of you, he should have stood before you all those years ago, he should have stood before you in 2005, again in 2009, and again in 2019.”
She told the victims she was “sorry for the pain they experienced”.
