Ghislaine Maxwell Found Guilty On Five Of Six Counts In Jeffrey Epstein Sex Trafficking Case

A jury found Ghislaine Maxwell guilty on five of six counts on Wednesday afternoon.

She is facing a possible sentence of up to 65 years in prison, if she isn’t found dead under questionable circumstances like her associate Jeffrey Epstein.

In a suspicious development, the court is trying to seal all the records of the case.

Ghislaine Maxwell was found guilty by a U.S. jury on Wednesday of helping the late financier Jeffrey Epstein sexually abuse teenage girls, sealing a remarkable fall from grace for the British socialite.

Maxwell, 60, was accused of recruiting and grooming four teenagers between 1994 and 2004 for Epstein, her former boyfriend who killed himself in 2019 in a Manhattan jail cell while awaiting trial on sex abuse charges of his own.

She was convicted on five of six counts, including one count of sex trafficking. Her lawyers did not immediately respond to a query on whether or not they would appeal. Maxwell faces up to 65 years in prison at her yet-to-be-scheduled sentencing proceeding.

Maxwell’s trial was widely seen as the reckoning Epstein never had and one of the highest-profile cases in the wake of the #MeToo movement, which encouraged women to speak out about sexual abuse by famous and powerful people.

During the month-long trial, jurors heard emotional and explicit testimony from four women who portrayed Maxwell as central to their abuse by Epstein. Three of the four said Maxwell herself touched their bare breasts or took part in the encounters, which often began as massages.

People are a little cynical after what happened to Epstein.

They better keep a good eye on her in jail.
