The accused killer who shared a cell with Jeffrey Epstein appeared in federal court in White Plains Wednesday seeking protection after he claims federal guards have been threatening him.

Bruce Barket, the lawyer for Nicholas Tartaglione, is asking a judge that he be moved from Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center because he has information that can be “potentially very damaging” to the staff.

The article goes on to state the following:

Tartaglione was Epstein’s cellmate when the accused sex trafficker was first hospitalized after being found unresponsive in his cell, which happened after the multi-millionaire financier and alleged serial pedophile was found on the floor with bruises on his neck.

“The clear message Mr. Tartaglione has received is that if he conveys information about the facility or about the recent suicide, there will be a price to pay,” [Barket] wrote the judge. “The continuing and seemingly unresolvable problems with the conditions of Mr. Tartaglione’s confinement coupled with the unfortunate attempted suicide by a cellmate, to which Mr. Tartaglione is a critical witness, and the successful suicide of that same person makes his continued detention at the MCC inappropriate.”

Bloomberg further reported:

“Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Swergold said the government deferred to the U.S. Marshals Service on whether Tartaglione should be moved. Given the charges against him, though, it wouldn’t be appropriate to hold him in a non-Bureau of Prisons facility that contracts with the Marshals or in a county jail, as his lawyer suggested, Swergold said. Tartaglione has pleaded not guilty.

“The judge seemed sympathetic to Tartaglione’s position, saying the issues are ‘problematic.’ He ordered Tartaglione’s lawyers to consult with the Marshals Service and come up with a possible alternative. He noted that the likeliest option, Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center, had already kicked Tartaglione out over a disciplinary issue.”
