Trial of Ghislaine Maxwell Begins Today

The trial of Ghislaine Maxwell is set to start today more than two years after the jailhouse suicide of Jeffrey Epstein.

Federal prosecutors allege Maxwell was Epstein’s accomplice in a massive sex trafficking conspiracy involving under-age girls.

The 59-year-old international socialite has denied any role in Epstein’s crimes.

Maxwell was arrested back in July of 2020 at a remote property in New Hampshire.

She is being held in a Brooklyn federal jail.

The sex trafficking trial is expected to last about six weeks, but she could face another court date next year on charges of perjury.
