(NEWSMAX) Ghislaine Maxwell, the accused co-conspirator in Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged child sex-trafficking scheme, reportedly had an in-person visit from her lawyers — something other detainees haven’t been allowed during the coronavirus pandemic.

Maxwell’s lawyer Christian Everdell and another member of the legal team were seen walking into the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn with legal papers, the New York Daily News reported.

The report sparked immediate outrage among lawyers who’ve been trying to see detainees they represent for months, Law&Crime reported.

“We’ve been litigating for the Fed Defenders of NY to obtain a safe, in-person visiting option for many months,” lawyer Sean Hecker tweeted.

“MDC detainees have been waiting up to 6 months for such visits. And BOP-MDC decides that the 1st such visit should go to a wealthy British socialite? Absurd & unjust.”

“And then to find out that attorneys for Ms. Maxwell were given three hours to meet with their client – when the MDC has said that visits will generally be limited to one hour – is more disconcerting,” he told Law&Crime. “There can’t be two systems of justice in this country – one of friends of President Trump and one for everyone else.”
