Ghislaine Maxwell trial jury ends first full day of deliberations without verdict | Reuters

Must Read

On Tuesday, judges in the sex assault case of British aristocrat Ghislaine Maxwell adjourned without reaching a decision after hearing testimony from women who said she hooked them up for abuse by tycoon Jeffrey Epstein when they were minors.

Between 1994 and 2004, Maxwell, 59, is suspected of attracting and preparing four teenage girls for Epstein to torture. She has pled not guilty to charges of sexual exploitation and other offenses. After three weeks of heartbreaking evidence from the four victims, the judge in federal court in Manhattan started proceedings late Monday afternoon.

On Wednesday, the committee will resume its deliberations. Maxwell’s lawyers claim she is being blamed for Epstein’s crimes since the globetrotting investor, who was also Maxwell’s former partner and boss, committed suicide in a Manhattan jail cell in 2019 at the age of 66 while awaiting trial on sex assault allegations.
