Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite, is set to stand trial in New York City on sexual exploitation and other crimes. She is likely to refute allegations that she trained teenage girls for sexual assault by convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
He died in prison in 2019. Ms. Maxwell, 59, has been incarcerated in the United States since her capture last year, pending her high-profile six-week trial. Ms. Maxwell, who holds dual citizenship in the United States and France, has pleaded not guilty to all accusations leveled against her.
Ms. Maxwell’s lawyers, as well as family members, have frequently expressed their dissatisfaction with her detention conditions, and her legal team has filed many unsuccessful bail applications.
