Unsealed court documents reveal Ghislaine Maxwell's connection with Epstein

Unsealed court documents reveal Ghislaine Maxwell's connection with Epstein”

Other documents that have now been made public include the testimony of Virginia Roberts Giuffre, a key whistle-blower in the case, who also alleges that Prince Andrew slept with her while she was a teenager (something that he has repeatedly denied, notably during his Newsnight interview in which he claims he can not remember ever meeting her). She's the one who abused me on a regular basis.

Maxwell, 58, is accused of helping Epstein recruit and abuse underage girls, including one as young as 14, in London and the United States during the 1990s.

Two women, known as Jane Doe #1 and Jane Doe #2, asked for the files to be released, as they claim that Epstein depended on high-profile friends such as Prince Andrew to get him a more lenient sentence from a U.S. attorney in south Florida in 2008.

Maxwell is also accused of sometimes participating in the abuse.

The royal vehemently denies this. She faces six counts, including perjury, and up to 35 years in prison if convicted.

"You have done nothing wrong and I would urge you to start acting like it", Epstein wrote in January 2015, as more allegations of sexual abuse against him surfaced.

Virginia Roberts Giuffre speaks during a press conference outside a Manhattan court in NY on August 27, 2019.

Giuffre over the years has told her story to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but no charges were brought based on her allegations and she is not one of the three alleged victims in the current criminal case against Maxwell. Epstein pleaded guilty to procuring for prostitution a girl below age 18 and was sentenced to 18 months in prison and had to register as a sex offender.

Attorney Alan Dershowitz denied claims by Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre he was involved in sexual abuse ring allegedly run by Epstein.

Maxwell's lawyers repeatedly had tried to block their release, arguing that they could prejudice her trial.

A judge denied Maxwell be released on bail, and she's now in custody awaiting her trial.

Maxwell's lawyers, Mark Cohen and Laura Menninger, didn't immediately respond to email messages sent after business hours seeking comment about Maxwell's email correspondence with Epstein or about the allegations in the unsealed documents.

Giuffre has recounted how she had a job at 16 handing out towels in a spa locker room at Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida before Maxwell lured her to work as a masseuse for Epstein, when he began sexually assaulting her.

US District Judge Loretta A. Preska had ordered them released, but Maxwell's lawyers appealed her ruling to the 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals. Maxwell's trial is scheduled for next July.

Epstein was found dead of an apparent suicide in his NY jail cell in August 2019 while awaiting trial.

"I would appreciate it if shelley would come out and say she was your g'friend - I think she was from end 99 to 2002", Maxwell wrote to Epstein.

It is not clear who Shelley is.

"Since JE was charged in 2007 for solicitation of a prostitute I have been the target of outright lies, innuendo, slander, defamation and salacious gossip and harassment; headlines made up of quotes I have never given, statement I have never made".
