NEW YORK -- Jeffrey Epstein's longtime confidante Ghislaine Maxwell was transferred Monday to New York to face charges that she recruited women and girls, one as young as 14, for him to sexually abuse, the Bureau of Prisons confirmed.
Prosecutors have asked a judge to schedule a Friday court appearance in Manhattan federal court for for Maxwell, 58, who was arrested last week at a $1 million estate she had purchased in New Hampshire.
Maxwell, the daughter of British publishing magnate Robert Maxwell, was the former girlfriend and longtime close associate of Epstein, who killed himself in a Manhattan jail last August while he awaited trial on federal sex trafficking charges.
Maxwell has been indicted on multiple charges, including that she conspired to entice girls as young as 14 to engage in illegal sex acts with Epstein from 1994 through 1997.
Several of Epstein's victims have described Maxwell as his chief enabler, recruiting and grooming young girls for abuse. She has denied wrongdoing and called claims against her "absolute rubbish."
In a letter to a judge Sunday, prosecutors said they have communicated with Maxwell's defense lawyer, Christian Everdell, who would like a Friday bail hearing where she will be arraigned.
Prosecutors have said Maxwell "poses an extreme risk of flight." Maxwell has three passports, is wealthy with lots of international connections, and has "absolutely no reason to stay in the United States and face the possibility of a lengthy prison sentence," they wrote in a memo.
She is currently being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn.
She won’t be around long enough to testify.
Bet she doesn’t see August.....
If she was that much of a flight risk, with all those resources, then why did she stay in the USA?
I think they knew all along where she was, and she spent the last year destroying evidence.
she won’t be hanging around for very long in the NYC jail.
Just till she stops breathing..................
I would have handed some associate cash to buy a sailboat...then sailed off to the Med. I can’t understand why she lingered around and played this game.
Dead men tell no tales !!
“Just till she stops breathing..................”
Well, you know, “assisted suicide” tends to do that.
Adios Mizz Maxwell. May your sheet work quickly.
My condolences to her and her family.
The NSA had her every call monitored and followed...................
They are moving up her execution date.
Boll and Branch, no doubt..................
..... or women.................
We’ll know if the security cameras outside her cell suddenly stop working.................
How long did Epstein last in NYC?................
Not “supposedly/alleged killed himself in jail”????
