Ghislaine Maxwell is ‘hosting etiquette classes’ for 40 prison inmates
| Last updated
Convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell is said to be holding etiquette classes for inmates at the Florida prison she's serving her time in.
Last year, Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in prison after a jury found her guilty of luring teenage girls for convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
The former socialite was found guilty of sex trafficking minors, conspiracy to entice a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, and conspiracy to transport a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.
She was also found guilty of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of minors and of transporting a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.
But that hasn't stopped Maxwell preaching about women's empowerment, as it's said she's holding etiquette classes twice a week for up to 40 prisoners.
A source told the Daily Mail that Maxwell is teaching her fellow inmates at the Federal Correctional Institution in Tallahassee, Florida how to have good manners, how to talk, and even how to dress and behave in a job interview.
A flyer is also reportedly up inside the prison which promotes the course Maxwell is offering to inmates
It reads: "Taught by Mrs. Maxwell, this course teaches the three principles of etiquette – focusing on respect, consideration and honesty."
The source said: "It's less about balancing books on heads and being ladylike, and more about having confidence in yourself – how to behave and talk in a professional manner, the secrets of success in the corporate world, that sort of thing.
"Miss Maxwell's message is, so what if you're a woman and a convicted felon, you're not a second class citizen. She's an unlikely role model but she's very passionate about this."
An insider told the paper that the classes have proven very popular amongst inmates to the point where Maxwell is doing them in both English and Spanish.
With the help of a Colombian inmate acting as a translator, Maxwell is able to deliver the course for the jail's Hispanic population, too.
The course apparently ran from 5 December to 30 December, with prison authorities having already approved a second round of classes due to their popularity.
And it seems that Maxwell is taking a rather hands-on approach to prison life, with sources telling The Mirror that she also works in the prison's law library and enjoys going for a run on the prison grounds nearly every day.
This comes after the disgraced socialite was pictured having a jog on the prison's outdoor grounds back in October.
