Will Ghislaine Maxwell, partner of child abuser Epstein, speak out for less punishment?
Ghislaine Maxwell, who was convicted of being the accomplice of US billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, a child abuse and sexual abuse convict, was seen talking to a journalist before the hearing.
British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, who was tried for creating a sex trade network and being an accomplice to US billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who is guilty of child abuse and sexual harassment, was found guilty on 5 of 6 charges in the hearing held on Wednesday in the US state of New York.
The penalty for these crimes is at least 65 years in prison, meaning 60-year-old Maxwell could spend the rest of his life in prison. Will this ‘talk about accomplices to get less punishment?’ It brought with it the question.
Names such as Prince Andrew of England, former US Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, with whom Epstein and Maxwell were close friends during the judicial processes, were also mentioned in the documents submitted to the case file.
Epstein committed suicide in August 2019 while in prison, and his death caused much speculation.
Women, who stated that they were victimized at a young age in the sex trade network established by Epstein and Maxwell, called for other people in the pedophilia network to be held accountable.
‘He was heard saying he wanted to speak to the media’
It is among the questions wondering whether Maxwell, who is expected to serve more than 60 years in prison after being found guilty, will reveal other names in order to receive a lesser sentence.
Despite the fact that the defendant family lawyer Leah Saffian sat with the Maxwell family in the courtroom in the previous hearings, this curiosity was fueled when she was photographed with James Hill, one of the producers of the US news channel USA News, to introduce Maxwell.
Maxwell was heard saying he ‘wanted to speak to the media’ after introducing himself to US News producer James Hill, the Miami Herald reported on the matter.
