In this courtroom sketch, Ghislaine Maxwell, left, escorted by a U.S. Marshal, wears leg shackles as she enters the courtroom for her sentencing in federal court June 28, 2022 in New York. Maxwell is now in the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) on Capital Circle NE in Tallahassee.

Ghislaine Maxwell is off to Florida to serve a 20-year prison sentence for helping financier Jeffrey Epstein sexually abuse underage girls.

The 60-year-old former socialite was moved from a New York City federal jail last week to FCI Tallahassee. It's a low-security federal prison in Florida’s capital.

She had been held under close watch in light of Epstein’s 2019 jail suicide. It wasn’t clear whether Maxwell would be held in restrictive housing or under other special precautions.

According to a prison consulting firm, the prison also offers yoga, Pilates, movies and an inmate talent show.
