British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested Thursday on charges she helped lure at least three girls — one as young as 14 — to be sexually abused by the late financier Jeffrey Epstein, who was accused of victimizing dozens of girls and women over many years. According to the indictment, Maxwell, who lived for years with Epstein and was his frequent companion on trips around the world, facilitated his crimes and on some occasions ed him in sexually abusing the girls.
Epstein, 66, killed himself in a federal detention centre in New York last summer while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges. Maxwell has, for years, been accused by many women of acting as a madam for Epstein, helping him scout young girls for abuse, then hiring them to give him massages, during which the girls were pressured into sex acts. Those accusations, until now, never resulted in criminal charges.
The indictment, which was unsealed Thursday, included counts of conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity. She was also accused of perjuring herself during a deposition in a civil lawsuit over alleged abuse. At a brief hearing Thursday, a magistrate judge ordered Maxwell to remain in custody while she is transferred to New York for a detention hearing there.
Giuffre bolstered her allegations with a picture of her, Andrew and Maxwell that she said was taken at the time.
Their names were not revealed in court filings. Maxwell is the daughter of a British publishing magnate Robert Maxwell, who died in after falling off his yacht near the Canary Islands.
At the time, he was facing allegations that he had illegally looted pension funds from his businesses. Maxwell was in an intimate relationship with Epstein for years and also was paid by him to manage his various properties, according to the indictment, which included a photograph of Epstein with his arm around Maxwell and his head nuzzling hers. Strauss, at the news conference, stood silent, pointing at the picture as news crews captured the moment.
Epstein was initially investigated in Florida and pleaded guilty to state charges in that allowed him to avoid a lengthy prison sentence. He was free a little after a year in prison.
