Ghislaine Maxwell might spend the rest of her life in jail!
60-year-old Ghislaine Maxwell was declared guilty by a jury on five different federal charges, including sex trafficking of a minor girl.
The attorneys representing Maxwell have announced to make an appeal against the verdict.
US district judge Alison Nathan stated that the final sentence hearing will be scheduled later.
According to legal experts, “the prosecutors are planning to continue working and investigating the crimes committed by the famous British socialist combined with the late convicted Jeffrey Epstein.”
Joey Jackson, a legal analyst and criminal defense attorney stated that the prosecutors may arrive on a deal with Ghislaine Maxwell before the final verdict.
“I think prosecutors — if they’re looking to go down the route of potentially holding other people accountable — will now say, ‘Now that you’re guilty, perhaps you can speak to us now, and to the extent that you cooperate, maybe we can work out some kind of arrangement where it’s not as stiff for you in jail,'” said Jackson.
“Because Maxwell has no prior criminal history, she might not get the maximum sentence anyway — though the egregiousness of the crimes will lead to “significant time” behind bars,” he added.
“I think prosecutors have a real obligation to dig all the way down to the bottom and bring anyone else who may have been part of this to justice,” he further said.
Apart from the sex trafficking of a minor charge, Maxwell was termed guilty of “transporting a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity and three related counts of conspiracy.”
She was charged with 5 out of 6 charges.
Maxwell was acquitted on “the charge of enticing a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts.”
The prosecutors argued that Ghislaine Maxwell and Epstein continued to conspire to set up a long-term scheme of luring young girls into having sexual relationships with Epstein from 1994 to 2004 in New York, New Mexico, Florida, and the US Virgin Islands.
“The road to justice has been far too long. But, today, justice has been done,” US Attorney Damian Williams said in a statement. “I want to commend the bravery of the girls — now grown women — who stepped out of the shadows and into the courtroom. Their courage and willingness to face their abuser made this case, and today’s result, possible.”
