Ghislaine Maxwell, who had been accused of helping Jeffrey Epstein abuse underage girls, has been isolated away from other inmates at the Brooklyn jail where she is being held, officials said.

“[The Bureau of Prisons] has made the determination that, at present, the defendant should not be fully integrated into the dorm-style accommodations of the general population,” prosecutors wrote in a Thursday letter to U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan.

In a letter on Friday, Federal prosecutors asked that the judge deny Maxwell’s request to learn the names of the three victims in the indictment. Prosecutors have already given Maxwell and her attorneys 165,000 pages of evidence, which includes the birth year and month of the accusers. Maxwell has also been given more time to review her case every day, increasing from three hours to 13 hours daily, according to prosecutors.

Maxwell’s attorneys argued earlier this month that their client has not been treated fairly during her time in jail, as she has been on 24-hour surveillance and has been given multiple body scans at the Metropolitan Detention Center. She has been taken off suicide watch.

Maxwell, 58, has plead not guilty to eight federal counts related to helping Epstein, including conspiracy, perjury, enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sexual acts and transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual acts.
