As Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘pimp’ Ghislaine Maxwell spends her first days behind bars, a lawyer for their alleged victims who predicted that the perverted financier would die in prison says she will likely suffer the same fate.
Spencer Kuvin told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview that Maxwell “knows too much” and that powerful people may want to silence her even though she is locked up.
“She may not be able to handle the fear of what is going to happen to her and take matters into her own hands, or there may be people who are very afraid of what she has to say,” Kuvin predicted.
Maxwell has an astonishing international network of friends and acquaintances, some of whom have undoubtedly helped her settle down since Epstein’s suicide.
Kuvin said people laughed at him when he predicted Epstein would die in prison, but his feelings tell him the same about Maxwell.
Maxwell, 58, was arrested Thursday on federal charges related to her alleged underage girls for Epstein for abuse.
She won the confidence of girls over 14 and put them in a “ snare ” that she and Epstein placed – and in some cases, she took part in sexual acts, the federal indictment claims.

Maxwell, who dated Epstein for at least three years in the 1990s, spends the weekend in the relative comfort of Merrimack County Prison in Boscawen, New Hampshire, before transferring to New York, where she will be housed in a rock hard nail federal lock up pending trial.
The Merrimack lock-up houses both men and women from the area around New Hampshire’s capital, Concord. Superintendent Ross Cunningham declined to reveal details of Maxwell’s daily life indoors when he was contacted by DailyMail.com. “It’s a security issue,” he said.
He said the prison, built in 2005, holds Maxwell under contract with the US Marshals Service.
Kuvin made his prediction after British socialite Maxwell was arrested in Tuckedaway, a mountaintop mansion in rural Bradford, New Hampshire, which she had purchased anonymously for $ 1.07 million in December.

She had hidden her identity using an LLC and rarely, if ever, left the isolated home with its breathtaking views of Mount Sunapee. No one in the city knew she lived on the four-acre, four-bathroom property on 156 acres.
William Sweeney, assistant director of the FBI’s New York Field Office, said she “ slipped away to a beautiful property in New Hampshire, where she continued to live a life of privileges while her victims lived through the trauma inflicted on them years ago. “.
Maxwell has not made a plea yet, but has protested strongly against her innocence in deposits.
Florida-based Kuvin represents several women who claim that Epstein sexually assaulted and raped them when they were teenagers.
He told DailyMail.com, “I don’t think she got out of prison alive. I said the same about Jeffrey Epstein and people made fun of me.
“I think she knows way too much information – I just have a gut feeling.
Epstein, 66, was found hanged in his prison cell last August pending trial of sex trafficking allegations, sparking a series of conspiracy theories.
Among the powerful people who knew him and visited him on his sleeve in New York, New Mexico, Florida, London, and the U.S. Virgin Islands were Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump. British Prince Andrew, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Baruk and celebrity lawyer Alan Dershowitz.
A pathologist hired by Epstein’s brother, Mark, said the fracture in his neck suggested he had been killed, although the official autopsy said it was suicide.
The apparent incompetence of the prison where he was being held played a role in his death. Guards at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center would not have checked him out, and the cameras outside his cell were not working the night he died.
Maxwell could very well go to the same prison, which means that her safety will be closely monitored.
Kuvin said he was surprised at how the Southern District of New York handled the case, because it was “the complete opposite of the way you would prosecute a mob case.”
Instead of going for subordinates and turning them over, prosecutors went straight to the top; first Epstein and now Maxwell.
But Kuvin said that “maybe there are people higher up that we don’t know about.”
Kuvin said, “By charging Ghislaine as many counts as they did, the United States law firm likely sought to speak to her and will pressure her to provide more evidence.
Epstein committed suicide in his prison cell in August last year, but some have speculated that he was murdered
“I don’t think they will haggle all these charges and you want her to sit down seriously for what she has done.
“I think she will talk. Given who she is, her status, and her lifestyle, I don’t think she is able to support herself, which is why she sued Epstein’s legacy to pay her legal fees.
“She will panic and will do anything to get a lighter sentence. For anyone who has been guilty of anything for the past 10-15 years, I would be nervous. ‘
After Epstein’s death, Attorney General William Barr said he was “appalled” and ordered an FBI investigation.
Geoffrey Berman, then the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, vowed to pursue investigations into Epstein’s co-conspirators, with Maxwell as the main target. Berman was fired by Trump last month and the case is now under American lawyer Audrey Strauss.
The charges against Maxwell, daughter of the disgraced British press baron Robert Maxwell, who died in 1991 when he fell from his luxury yacht, the Lady Ghislaine, included two perjury for alleging in a statement that she was unaware of the abuse of Epstein and that she had never massaged any of the girls.
She has also been accused of helping her former boyfriend ‘recruit, care for and eventually abuse those known to be under the age of 18’.
Some of the girls are said to be 14 years old, the charge alleges.
Among those who have claimed that Epstein did not kill himself is his former lawyer David Schoen.
He previously told DailyMail.com that Epstein was preparing a multi-layered legal and media strategy to fight his case.
During a five-hour meeting with Epstein, nine days before his death, Schoen said Epstein was ‘happy and excited’ and was looking forward to clearing his name
But Epstein was in a “dangerous situation” in prison and suggested that other prisoners blackmail him.
They would see him on TV in prison and say to Epstein, “$ 70 million mansion, huh?” Shoe said.
