NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK- December 29th, 2021— Ghislaine Maxwell is found guilty on 5 of 6 counts related to tracking minors with Jeffery Epstein. The charges relate to sexual abuse Maxwell facilitated upon minors between 1994 and 2004.
After 6 days of deliberating. The Jury of 6 men and 6 women has found Maxwell guilty of trafficking minors across state lines. Now she faces up to 65 years in prison.
Maxwell may still have two Trials ahead of her. One for perjury charges from the DOJ relating to it’s investigation into her and Epstein. And a second relating to charges with an accuser Virginia Roberts. Who is also suing Prince Andrews.
The Maxwell Trial was wrought with controversy from the beginning. The first day of the Ghislaine Maxwell Trial saw the first witness taking the stand. But the Trial was not streamed, not even by a call in line. Initially, the Public was thought to have access via a call-in teleconference.
During the Trials on victim, Annie Farmer explained how Maxwell lured her from her parents on a trip to New Mexico. Under the premise that Farmer would be meeting other students to discuss college opportunities. At one point Maxwell told Farmer to undressing front of her, and while groping her, said she had a nice body for Epstein.
Farmer was one of 4 victims of Maxwell’s grooming which testified at the trial. But there likely more. At least 27 victims have made complaints against the late Epstein who reportedly killed himself in prison.
The sentencing hearing has yet to be set. With Judge Allison Nathan being promoted to the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, it remains uncertain who will issue sentencing.
