Maxwell could be sentenced to 80 years in prison if she is found guilty on six counts of sex trafficking. Her lawyers will launch Maxwell’s defense case in New York.

According to the allegations, she was accused of procuring girls and women for Jeffrey Epstein, a billionaire paedophile. Elle vehemently denied the allegations.

After Annie Farmer testified, the prosecution ended its case Friday. She said that Maxwell had fondled her and physically abused her when she was 14.

Christian Everdell was a Maxwell lawyer and asked for the court’s permission to release some defense witnesses’ real names. He said: “People who testify could get a lot unwanted attention, particularly if they’re testifying on behalf Ms Maxwell.”

Judge Alison Nathan indicated that she would review the request.

She related how Epstein introduced her to Santa Fe ranch, New Mexico. There she met Maxwell.

Maxwell had several bail hearings during which Maxwell’s family and friends wrote anonymously to court asking for her bail. They also vouched for Maxwell’s good character.

According to a lawyer involved in the case, “People have lost their lives by linking their names with Ghislaine’s.”

“She supports any action to defend those who are willing to speak for her.” While she believes that she is innocent, she will prove it. However, her concern is for the safety of others and their reputations.

It is possible that the defense will last for two to three days. This could mean the case goes to the jury in December. Maxwell’s attorneys fear that jurors will rush to render a verdict in this instance.

Maxwell’s defense is still unknown. Sources say that Ghislaine was willing to testify. She will fight for her own life before the jury.

Ghislaine Maxwell also faces two charges of perjury but those counts are due to be tried after her sex crimes trial. 

These charges stem from testimony that she made in 2016, in an Epstein case against Virginia Giuffre.  


Prosecutors claim Maxwell groomed three girls for Epstein between 1994-97. 

Although they aren’t named in the indictment she did allegedly target them in London and New York.

Maxwell would, according to some reports, befriend the girls and ask them questions about their lives as well as their education. They would be made to feel at home by Maxwell taking them to the movies or taking them shopping. She won their trust and later delivered them to Epstein.

In order to “normalize” the later abuse, she allegedly undressed before the girls and then asked them sexual questions. 

Prosecutors say she then assisted Epstein in their abuse, and even took part herself. 

One example of alleged sexual abuse is’sexualized group massaging’. 

Indictment states that Maxwell encouraged the girls to borrow money from Epstein and pay him for education.
