Jeffrey Epstein, who made a name for himself at the elite investment bank Bear Stearns before starting his own investment firm, was first convicted of a series of crimes in 2005.
Then, in 2008, he was found guilty of organizing a juvenile criminal network linked to a number of powerful individuals. Epstein served just thirteen months for this sentence.
Then it got worse …
On July 6, 2019, Epstein was arrested again for trafficking in minors in the states of Florida and New York and was held awaiting trial in a New York jail.
This was a huge breakthrough for many of his victims.
Epstein managed to avoid dastardly and criminal acts for most of his life, most likely due to his money and social influence. For his victims, there is finally hope for justice.
And many believed that his conviction could reveal Other high-ranking and wealthy sex offenders.
Epstein had many high-ranking friends, many of whom were It is known that travel to his elusive island where most of his crimes took place.
One of them is Prince Andrew of the British royal family.

However, before Epstein could throw mud at his friends …
He was found dead in his Manhattan jail cell, apparently by hanging.
This was ruled a suicide, although some people were not convinced.
But due to the nature of his crimes, as well as Epstein’s connections with the political and social elite, some have other suspicions that Indeed It happened.
Be that as it may, in the months after his death, the investigation fell silent.
Progress seemed meager, but then release Jeffrey Epstein: Dirty Rich on Netflix, it all returned to the spotlight again.
The victims shared their experiences.
Each of them told similar but horrifying stories of the attack during the “massage” of Epstein and his friends.
It also talked about the involvement of Epstein’s ex-girlfriend and close friend …
Now, for months after Epstein’s death, Maxwell remained securely hidden and out of the public eye …
And at the time, she was not scolded or publicly questioned for her involvement in the scandal.
But it was reported in July 2020, Maxwell was finally arrested by the FBI in New Hampshire.
She was taken to a hearing where she was described as threatening to escape, so she was ordered to remain in custody while being transferred to New York for a detention hearing.
Maxwell was charged with crimes of hobby for minors and trafficking in underage girls.
She has also faced numerous other charges.
Including repeated lies about his involvement in human trafficking during his testimony in 2016.
If Maxwell is found guilty, he faces thirty-five years behind bars, although, of course, the disgraced socialite has always maintained valor in her innocence, not pleading guilty.
As you might expect, Maxwell spent a lot of time in prison.
Former socialite’s lawyer Bobbie Sternheim argued that Maxwell faces harsher prison conditions than prisoners convicted of murder or terrorism.
Sternheim said Maxwell is effectively being held in solitary confinement and under “excessive and aggressive” surveillance twenty-four hours a day.
In addition to being monitored in her cell, cameras also track her movements when she is allowed to leave the cell.
Earlier this year, her lawyer spoke about her prison condition in the hopes that it might inspire sympathy in her.
It didn’t work as efficiently as he hoped, though.
In a court hearing just two weeks earlier, Sternheim renewed Maxwell’s bail petition in court on November 29.
She described Maxwell’s prison as “inappropriate” in court documents, Yahoo reported…
“Observation rivals Dr. Hannibal Lecter’s imprisonment scenes, despite the lack of a cage and plastic protective shroud,” she wrote.
The keeper added that Sternheim also said that “Maxwell’s conditions of detention over the past 16 months are still reprehensible and totally unsuitable for [a] a woman on the verge of 60 years of age with no criminal record or violence, ”as she spoke of her time at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn.
“It is unjustified, ruthless and completely inappropriate,” wrote Sternheim.
“[She] suffered physical and emotional abuse at the hands of correctional staff, poor and unsanitary living conditions, inadequate nutrition, difficulty checking millions of documents in the court proceedings against her, and sleep deprivation. ”
Maxwell also spoke out herself.
Maxwell reported Daily mail: “I used to take a shower every day, but I stopped because of the creepy guards who were standing nearby and looking at me all the time. I used to go to the toilet with an open sewer, and the friendly rat came to visit me regularly. “
“I told the guards, but nothing was done until the rat jumped out and rushed at the guard who was screaming in terror.”
“Finally, the sewer was cut off.”
Maxwell has repeatedly applied for bail …
All were rejected.
So, the first arguments of the trial of Ghislaine Maxwell began.
And she seemed to be pretty calm about the situation.
Although she wore a mask throughout the proceedings, Maxwell could be seen laughing and chatting with her lawyers.
Among them were Leah Saffian, Christian Everdale and Bobby Sternheim, with whom she spoke during the hearing.
At one point, Ghyslaine even waved to her sister Isabelle Maxwell, who was sitting behind her in a public gallery.
Her actions have made many feel that she is merciless to the crimes of which she is accused.
From the trial drawings, many people also noticed not only Maxwell’s actions, but her appearance as well.
It was noted that Maxwell entered the court with freshly dyed hair in a jumper, black trousers and heels – an outfit that is very different from her orange prison clothes.
The trial was in full swing, and there were many horrific revelations.
From photographs inside Epstein’s home to a booklet of rules that employees had to follow.
Another shocking revelation was made.
And that’s about recent photos shared during Maxwell’s trial …
In the photos that were later shared on social media, Maxwell and Epstein enjoy living together …
The jet plane depicted, on vacation, hugging each other in a warm embrace, is clearly not what Maxwell wanted the court to see.
The prosecution posted over a dozen photos of the couple together to demonstrate the deep connection between the two.
This ultimately led to the unthinkable.
Take a look at some of the pictures below …
Attorney Alison Moe said: “These photos show their close relationship over time. Given the change in hairstyles, the people in the photographs are clearly aging. “
And then the jury involved in her trial made a decision that shocked and confused the world.
Even when two people took to the podium to share heartbreaking stories of the abuse they suffered while being around Maxwell and Epstein …
The jury decided to take a break for Christmas.
But the decision was made.
The court found Ghislaine Maxwell guilty on all counts but one.
And now it has caught the world’s attention that Ghislaine Maxwell may start mentioning the names of people who have also been involved in the horrific circle of the sex trade …
All so that the sentence is shorter.
She will be charged with up to sixty-five years in prison.
This means that the sixty-year-old girl will be 125 years old when she sees freedom again …
And well, no one has ever lived to this age, even outside the prison.
Thus, in a desperate attempt not to spend her life behind bars, Maxwell may have recourse to the names of other predators who were involved in nefarious criminal acts with her and Epstein.
Before Maxwell was found guilty, she was seen talking to ABC news producer James Hill, where she overheard her say she was willing to talk to the media, according to Daily mail.
Pierce Morgan also tweeted.
Saying: “Will the vile sex trader Ghislaine Maxwell sing like a canary now to avoid spending the rest of her life in prison? If she does, there might be many rich, powerful and famous people tonight who are sweating … but not sweating. “
Among those directly involved with both Epstein and Maxwell were Donald Trump, Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew.
Donald Trump also spoke frequently about his relationship with Epstein.
In an interview, he said that he “wishes” Ghislaine Maxwell “all the best” and said that he did not want anything “bad” to happen to her.
And he also drew attention to the uncertainty surrounding Epstein’s suicide death.
But on another occasion, he said he was “not a fan” of Epstein.
Said they had consequences fifteen years ago and they haven’t spoken since.
Prince Andrew also spoke to BBC News.
Virginia Giuffre revealed that Epstein sold her and attacked Prince Andrew.
But in an interview, he said: “I can absolutely categorically tell you that this never happened.”
And speaking of the photograph he took with the then seventeen-year-old girl, he said that he “did not remember” how they did it.
So Maxwell will name a few names?
What do you think?
