ghislaine maxwell sentenced to 20 years in prison for federal sex trafficking
A court has sentenced Ghislaine Maxwell to 20 years in prison for federal sexting. The case is one of the most high-profile involving a woman’s alleged involvement in a sex network. While the sentence seems lenient compared to many other similar crimes, the judge’s decision is not without precedent. The prosecution had requested a sentence of thirty to 55 years in prison for Maxwell, and the defense had argued that the maximum punishment was five years. The defense asked the judge to redact the statements, but Nathan ruled that six of the victims were allowed to speak.
She will serve five years of supervised release
On Wednesday, a British socialite, Ghislaine Maxwell, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for helping Jeffrey Epstein groom and recruit teenage girls for sexual acts. Maxwell’s sentencing was the last in a long string of federal criminal proceedings after her arrest in July 2020 at a sprawling New Hampshire estate. Judge Judy Jackson said Maxwell’s wealth would not influence her sentence, adding that no one is above the law.
She is on suicide watch at Brooklyn jail
Ghislaine Maxwell, a woman being held in a federal detention center in Brooklyn, is on suicide watch as she awaits sentencing. She reportedly told prison psychologists that she was afraid to die, but she refused to elaborate. According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Maxwell also reportedly threatened prison staff with a $1 million bill, so the mental health staff moved her to a general population unit.
Her lawyers vow to appeal her conviction
The prosecution’s evidence focused on Maxwell’s longtime relationship with Epstein, including several pictures of the two as a couple. Former Epstein employees testified that Maxwell was the “lady of the house” and the “no. 2” in their lives. A former JPMorgan Chase & Co. banker testified that Epstein transferred $30 million to Maxwell between 1999 and 2007.
She was a federal appeals judge
Former federal appeals judge Gislaine Maxwell was convicted last month of sex trafficking. She allegedly recruited four girls for sexual encounters with her boyfriend, disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein. Her sentencing was delayed while she appealed her conviction and sentence. Maxwell paid a fee of 505 US dollars to challenge her conviction and sentence. Prosecutors characterized her as “dangerous” during her three-week trial. During the trial, the jury was told details of how she enticed vulnerable teenagers to Epstein’s properties.
