Prosecutors seek 30 to 55 years in prison for Epstein accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell

US prosecutors have requested 30 to 55 years in prison for Ghislaine Maxwell, convicted of recruiting girls to be abused by wealthy sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. The judge will hand down the final sentence on June 28.

Maxwell, 60, was found guilty of the offenses at the end of 2021. The entrepreneur then risked eighty years in prison.

In a document prosecutors filed with the New York court, they wrote that Maxwell’s behavior was “surprisingly predatory.” “She used to seek out vulnerable victims, which reflects her view that troubled young girls can be viewed as disposable items.”

Maxwell’s lawyers tried to open another trial earlier this year after they said one of the jurors gave misleading answers during jury selection. He had hidden that he himself had been the victim of sexual abuse. The judge denied the request in March.

Maxwell was in a relationship with Epstein between 1994 and 2004. The multi-millionaire committed suicide in 2019 while in jail awaiting an abuse case against him.
