Maxwell, 60, is serving a 20-year sentence in connection with her role in a sexual abuse case involving minors.
She helped groom victims for ex-boyfriend Jeffrey Epstein to sexually abuse over several years. Epstein died in a Manhattan jail in 2019 before he went on trial.
Maxwell is due for release on July 17, 2037.
At her sentencing, lawyers for Maxwell had asked the judge for leniency, among other things, citing the conditions that she has lived inside the Metropolitan Detention Center in New York City.
