Ghislaine Maxwell sentenced in Epstein sexual abuse case
By TOM HAYS and LARRY NEUMEISTER, Associated Press
NEW YORK (AP) – British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell has been convicted of helping teenage girls get sexually assaulted by the late Jeffrey Epstein.
The verdict announced on Wednesday closed a month-long trial featuring accounts of sexual exploitation of young girls as young as 14.
Jurors deliberated for five full days before finding Maxwell guilty of all but one count. She risks years in prison. It’s an ending long sought after by women who have spent years fighting to hold Maxwell accountable for their abuse.
Her lawyers have said she was being used as a scapegoat for crimes committed by Epstein, who committed suicide in 2019.
