Epstein case: Ghislaine Maxwell convicted of sex crimes by a New York court


The former British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell was found guilty, this Wednesday, December 29, by a New York court of a series of sexual crimes, in particular that of trafficking in young underage girls between 1994 and 2004, for the benefit of the former – American financier Jeffrey Epstein.

Ghislaine Maxwell, 60, had been tried since the end of November by the Manhattan federal court on six counts, in particular that of having provided minors to her former companion for him to sexually abuse. She faces decades in prison.

After 40 hours of deliberation over five days, “a unanimous jury found Ghislaine Maxwell guilty of one of the worst crimes imaginable – facilitating and taking part in the sexual assault of children,” said Manhattan federal prosecutor Damian Williams said in a statement.

These “crimes were perpetrated with his lifelong partner and accomplice, Jeffrey Epstein,” who committed suicide in a New York prison in August 2019, before being tried for sex crimes.
