Ghislaine Maxwell is still not satisfied with the conditions she finds herself in a federal lockup in Brooklyn although according to her lawyers she no longer has to choose between taking a shower or getting exercise and preparing for trial.

In a letter Monday to a federal judge in Manhattan, Maxwell’s lawyers said she is subjected to “uniquely onerous” conditions of confinement because of the death in custody of her former companion Jeffrey Epstein. She is monitored 24 hours a day by security cameras and under constant observation by prison guards, some of whom are Bureau of Prisons psychologists, her lawyers said.
