Ghislaine Maxiwell (59) is being tried for procuring girls underage for Jeffrey Epstein. She pleaded not guilt to all charges
When the FBI raided Jeffrey Epstein’s New York property in 2019, Ghislaine Maxill was arrested with schoolgirl clothes.
According to court testimony, agents located the small costumes on the same floor that was the massage area. Judge Alison Nathan accepted the costumes into evidence, allowing them to be raised by witnesses.
The FBI also found a photograph of Epstein’s Underage Goddaughter, which she admitted to evidence. It was hung in front of Maxwell’s bedroom in Palm Beach.
A photo of Epstein holding the girl can be used by him as evidence. It shows Epstein grabbing her underwear and biting her bottom.
Christian Everdell, Maxwell’s lawyer, said that he was concerned about the idea of the girl making people believe Epstein likes ‘prepubescent girls’.
In 2019, Epstein was detained by the FBI. They discovered a “vast treasure trove” of nude photographs in the safe in Epstein’s New York City mansion. Also, CDs with images of underage girls.
This is not the first time that schoolgirls have been seen in outfits.
Day five of Ghislaine Maxill’s trial started Friday in Manhattan. Maxwell in court sketch
At Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial, Friday was the hearing about schoolgirl dresses that were found in Jeffrey Epstein’s New York property when the FBI invaded the property.
Judge Nathan admitted into evidence Epstein’s photo in his underwear, which was hung outside of the bedroom that Maxwell allegedly shared at the Palm Beach house. The photos were discovered in 2005 by the FBI.
Christian Everdell was Maxwell’s lawyer. He said that if that were permitted, then the jury could make a moral judgment about conduct that has been legal’.
Alison Moe was one of the prosecutors. She said that Jeffrey Epstein had two schoolgirl clothes on the same level as his massage room, but this directly speaks to an underage girl’s preference.
It also shows that Epstein was interested in schoolgirls long after Maxwell’s arrest, which occurred between 1994 and 2004.
Moe stated that schoolgirl clothes, even small, were discovered on the floor next to the rooms in which underage girls were abused.
Everdell objected that Epstein’s goddaughter’s photograph was used outside of Epstein’s bedroom, because it may lead to an “inappropriate conclusion”.
One of the prosecutors, Maurenecomey, claimed that the girl in question was a clearly underage’ female wearing her underwear and that Epstein was displaying it so prominently in his home was ‘highly suspicious’.
She stated that it was contrary to Epstein’s defense, which claimed that Epstein was an upright citizen because he knew important persons.
It meant that there was no possibility for him to ever show such an ‘vile attraction towards underage girls’.
Comey pointed out that the photograph was taken ‘outside of the room the defendant shared with Epstein’.
Comey stated that Epstein’s “lifestyle” and his decor reflected the public image.
She said that the defendant had ‘not only known the public persona but also the personal persona’. This persona wanted to have sexual relations with girls under the age of 18.
Maxwell’s accuser Jane, broke down during a question period about Maxwell’s alleged ‘orgies and’sexualized massagings’.
Teresa Helm, victim Jeffrey Epstein’s, and her attorney were seen heading to the courthouse on Friday
Maxwell’s sisters Isabel and Kevin Maxwell attended the courthouse to support their sister on Friday
Judge Nathan granted the photo and another that was on Epstein’s desk.
Comey stated that Epstein was pictured ‘with a young boy across his lap’, making it appear like he’s ‘biting her backside.
Everdell claimed it was a “playful moment” and that there was nothing illegal.
Comey said it showed a ‘deeply disturbing oversexualizing of a young girl’.
Judge Nathan approved it.
Judge Nathan declined to admit into evidence a statement from Epstein’s Palm Beach agent, who claimed he had seen some of the semen.
Judge Nathan asked whether it was tested. After being informed no, Judge Nathan said that it could not be used.
Maxwell’s attorney Jeff Pagliuca said that Maxwell was the real name of his first accuser. Jane is her anonymous identity.
Judge Nathan issued a warning to Mr Pagliuca, and ordered that the comment be struck from the records.
Juan Alessi (72) was Epstein’s ex-housekeeper and he spoke out about how he wanted his house to be run like a 5-star hotel. He’s seen entering court Friday
On Thursday, Epstein’s former housekeeper Juan Alessi, 72, took the stand and revealed how she wanted the house run like a ‘five-star hotel,’ which included washing Epstein’s car, stuffing it with $100 bills and avoiding eye contact with him, as Maxwell claimed he detested it.
Staff were handed a 58-page ‘Household Manual’ filled with demands: ‘Try and anticipate the needs of Mr. Epstein, Ms. Maxwell and their guests;’ ‘Do not discuss personal problems with guests;’ ‘Unobtrusive is the key;’ ‘SMILE!’ “NEVER reveal Mr. Epstein’s or Ms. Maxwell’s whereabouts or activities to anyone.”
The checklist contained one bullet: “See nothing.” Do nothing.
Alessi answered Maurene Comey’s question about what he thought that meant.
In the master bedroom, staff were to ensure a gun was placed in a bedside table drawer, shutters were closed, and that reading glasses, eye masks and ‘Jeffrey Epstein large and small notepads’ were on both bedside tables.
Maxwell required that staff use proper language with a list containing things they didn’t say: “Yeah,” “Sure,” and “No Problem,” along with the following words: “Yeah,” “Sure”,?” “No problem,” “Gotcha,” and “I don’t know what.”
The manual states that compliments must be returned with the following words: “You are so kind” and “Thank you,” Ms. ______. I enjoy doing it.’
Alessi also had to prepare breakfast for Maxwell at five o’clock in the morning and bathe Maxwell, a Yorkshire Terrier named Max.
According to him, Epstein was expecting him to get up early to prepare the meals.
Alessi said also that a part of his job involved cleaning up after Epstein’s massages, which Maxwell had scheduled for three times per day. These were usually done in his bathroom.
When asked by the prosecutor whether he had ever discovered anything unexpected after his massages, Alessi replied that he did find a large dildo.A huge male penis, with two heads.
Alessi failed to clarify whether this was the sextoy called a “Twin Torpedo”, as prosecutors refer to it in their pretrial filings.
Alessi stated that he used gloves to put on the gloves and then ‘ran the water under it and placed the dildo inside Ms. Maxwell’s bathroom closet’ in a wicker basket.
Alessi claimed that he found ‘pornographic cassettes and a leather black costume’ within the same basket.
He also said that he had found two more sex toys, one that looked like a pillow and the other that looked almost exactly like arms with rubber vibrations at their ends.
Alessi explained that Epstein put these items in his dresser.
Epstein’s Bedroom Checklist – Pages of the detailed manual
Alessi claimed that Maxwell first saw him in 1991, and that after that their relationship was more professional.
Alessi stated that she took control of the house from the moment she arrived. I was told by her that she would be the lady in the house. I was also informed by her that she had responsibility for Epstein’s other properties.
Alessi says Maxwell was at Epstein’s property visits ‘95% of the times.
Alessi confessed to Palm Beach police that he was willing to wash vibrators off and have a long rubber penis after Epstein had given a treatment for a little girl.
It would be necessary to make sure that the bed is clean after every massage, which strongly suggests some form of sexual activity.
Alessi claimed that Epstein employed two young girls, one of whom he recognized as being underage.
Jane, the first accuser, was presented to him and he confirmed that it was Jane.
Virginia Roberts is the second. She claims Epstein loaned Virginia out to Prince Andrew, which he strongly denies.
Alessi was the fourth witness in Ghislaine Maxill’s sex-trafficking trial.
Alessi said also that he discovered sex toys after cleaning up Epstein’s massages.
Alessi stated that Jane was “introduced” to him by Ms. Maxwell at Palm Beach House. He estimated that she was 14-15 years old at the time.
Alessi claimed that Jane visited Epstein’s house on Jane’s behalf and that he picked her up. He also recalled Maxwell having ‘instructed him’ to take her to the airport.
Alessi answered Maurene Comey’s question about why she wasn’t able to drive.
She would visit Maxwell when she got to the house. Alessi told her that it wasn’t her job to inquire about where Maxwell was going.
Alessi claimed that he remembered driving Maxwell, Epstein, and Jane to Epstein’s plane and seeing them all board together.
Six charges were brought against Maxwell
Conspire to lure minors to illegal sex acts (maximum sentence 5 years)
Incentive to minor to travel and engage in illegal sexual acts (20 years)
Conspiracy for minors to be transported with the intent of engaging in criminal sexual activities (20 years).
Transport of minors with the intent to engage criminal sexual activity (minimum 10 years, maximum life)
The Sex Trafficking Confessional
Sex Trafficking of Minors
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 allege that Maxwell groomed 3 girls in 1994 to 1997 for Epstein.
The indictment does not name them, however, she is alleged to have targeted them in London.
Maxwell would, according to some reports, befriend the girls and ask them questions about their lives as well as their education. It is alleged that Maxwell would take the girls to movies, and then go shopping with them, putting them at ease. This trust was enough to allow her to deliver them to Epstein later.
In order to “normalize” the later abuse, she allegedly undressed before the girls and then asked them sexual questions.
The prosecutors claim that she not only assisted Epstein, but also took part in some of the abuse.
Sex abuse is alleged to include’sexualized groups massages’.
According to the indictment, Maxwell also encouraged Maxwell to encourage Maxwell to spend money on Epstein to pay for her education.
