Ghislaine Maxwell appeals sex trafficking conviction and 20-year jail sentence

Ghislaine Maxwell has appealed her United States conviction and sentence for sex traficking.

The 60-year old was found guilty of seducing young women to massage rooms to allow Jeffrey Epstein, a disgraced financier, to molest them between 1994 and 2004.

Last month, she was sentenced to 20 years in prison by the federal court of the Southern District of New York.

Although she apologized to her victims at her sentencing hearing Maxwell paid $505 (PS420), to appeal her conviction and sentence.

She was called “dangerous” during the three-week trial. Jurors were also told how she helped vulnerable teens to Epstein’s many properties to abuse their sexuality.

Maxwell’s lawyers indicated that they would appeal against the conviction, after it was revealed that one of her jurors had not disclosed that he had been sexually assaulted.

Her counsel stated that Scotty David’s actions showed “a lack of reliability” and an “aspiration for publicity” at the time Scotty was retried.

Judge Alison Nathan dismissed it.

Maxwell’s lawyers stated that she should serve no more than four- to five years in prison in her submissions prior to her sentencing hearing.

The judge stated that she participated in a scheme to traffic teenage girls as young as 14 years old, which was repeated by her repeatedly.

Judge Nathan said, “The defendant’s conduct…was heinous & predatory.”

“Ms Maxwell collaborated with Epstein to identify young victims who were vulnerable. She played a key role in the facilitation of sexual abuse.”

Maxwell is currently in prison and has been there since July 2020, despite multiple attempts to release her on bail.

Epstein, who was awaiting trial on charges of sex trafficking, was found dead in his Manhattan federal jail cell in August 2019.

The death was ruled suicide.
