Ghislaine Maxwell Found Guilty Of Helping To Recruit, Groom And Sexually Abuse Underage Girls For Jeffrey Epstein
The British celebrity who just turned 60 was found guilty on five of six charges she had been brought.
Maxwell was accused of recruiting and delivering four teenagers to her partner, Epstein, between 1994 and 2004.
The mogul was found dead in 2019 in a Manhattan cell, following an apparent suicide, while awaiting trial on charges of sexual abuse.
She was convicted of conspiracy to entice a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, conspiracy to transport a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, transporting a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of minors and sex trafficking of minors, the last of which carries a statutory maximum of 40 years in prison.
Maxwell appeared to show no emotion behind her black mask. As the verdict was read in a federal court in Manhattan, Maxwell appeared to show little reaction behind a black mask, standing with her hands folded as the jury filed out of the courtroom.
