Ghislaine Maxwell is the former girlfriend and alleged madam of Jefferey Epstein. The officials arrested her on Thursday morning in Bradford, New Hampshire. According to sources, Maxwell could be locked up in the same jail where Jefferey Epstein committed suicide last year. She’ll face the charges of child sex trafficking.
Maxwell is said to have helped the millionaire pedophile procure and sexually abuse young girls. At the afternoon hearing of court, her attorneys agreed to move the case to the Southern District of New York.
Maxwell could not even get bail. Because the prosecutors highlighted the security concerns. As she had an international network of friends and access to unlimited resources.
There’s a possibility that the cops will transfer her to New York City either on Friday or Monday. And she could be housed at one of two federal lockups.
One is the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan and the other one is the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn. The Manhattan’s MCC is the lockup where Jefferey died. However, his family members couldn’t believe that he attempted suicide.
The people questioned US Attorney, Audrey Strauss at the press conference. Whether they were planning to take any special precautions to ensure the defendant’s safety in custody. Strauss told them that they were always concerned about it and will discuss this with the Bureau of Prisons.
Jack Dolson, a consultant for the Federal Bureau of Prisons also spoke in the favor. He told that possibly, Federal Officials could keep Ghislaine Maxwell away from New York to avoid the press attention.
Ghislaine Maxwell faces serious charges
A grand jury returned a sealed indictment with the charges against Ghislaine Maxwell on June 29. It accuses her of enticing underage girls to travel for sex. And, actually having sex with them & Epstein.
The jury further charged her for lying about it under oath in depositions when Virginia Giuffre Roberts sued her. Virginia was one of Epstein’s accusers, who says she had sex with Prince Andrew when she was 17.
If convicted, she could face life in prison on the worst possible charge. This includes the transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity and it carries a minimum 10-year sentence.
