Ghislaine Maxwell Pleads Not Guilty, Judge Denies Bail
Some of the girls were as young as 14.
In court on Tuesday, her legal team proposed a $5 bail package to grant her release, saying she has not left the country since Epstein’s arrest a year ago.
They also argued she is not a flight risk.
But the federal judge ordered her to stay in jail until trial.
New York Attorney Jordan Merson says, “Seeing Ghislaine go through a court proceeding and, you know, face justice, I think would really be very, very helpful to a lot to a lot of victims out there.”
If Maxwell is found guilty in the case, she faces up to 35 years in prison.
