In court, victims of Maxwell confronted her at her sentencing hearing on Tuesday. Maxwell (60) faces up to 55 years in prison. US Circuit Judge Alison Nathan said sentencing guidelines callled for Maxwell (60) to spend between 15 and 20 years in prison for recruiting and grooming girls to have sexual encounters with Epstein, then her boyfriend, between 1994 and 2004. Ahead of her sentencing hearing today, she arrived with shackles around her ankles which rattled as she made her way to her seat in the courtroom in the Southern District of New York. In often emotional and explicit testimony during the trial, Annie Farmer, a woman known as “Kate,” and two other women testified that Maxwell, who was found guilty on five counts, was a central figure in their abuse by Epstein. Maxwell maintains her innocence. In the Tuesday hearing in Manhattan federal court, Ms Farmer, now a psychologist, said her experience being exploited by Maxwell “resulted in significant shame” that sometimes left her feeling like she wanted to “disappear. A final decision will be handed down this afternoon by U.

” Kate said she was proud to help hold Maxwell accountable. He killed himself in a New York City federal jail, while waiting for trial. Victims Sarah Ransome, Elizabeth Stein, Annie Farmer and the accuser known as"Kate" were all present in the courtroom, as well as controversial juror Scotty David - who prompted calls from Maxwell's counsel for a retrial after he failed to disclose he was a victim of sexual abuse. “Today, I can look at Ghislaine and tell her that I became what I am today in spite of her and her efforts to make me feel powerless and insignificant, and I will cast that empowerment on my daughter,” Kate said. Maxwell’s monthlong trial in late 2021 was widely seen as the reckoning that Epstein — who died by suicide in a Manhattan jail cell in 2019 at age 66 while awaiting his own sex trafficking trial — never had. They cast Maxwell as a scapegoat for the crimes of Epstein — who could not be prosecuted because of his death — and a victim of childhood neglect. It was one of the highest-profile cases in the wake of the #MeToo movement, which encouraged women to speak out about sexual abuse, often at the hands of wealthy and powerful people. Maxwell's defence attorneys sought a delay to sentencing proceedings through a motion filed on Saturday, in which they said she had been placed on"suicide watch" and was"not permitted to possess and review legal documents". In calculating the guidelines range of 188-235 months, Judge Nathan agreed with prosecutors that two women who were not initially named in the July 2020 indictment against Maxwell were proved at the British socialite’s monthlong trial to have been victims. Ms Maxwell has already experienced a hard time during detention under conditions far more onerous and punitive than any experienced by a typical pre-trial detainee, and she is preparing to spend significantly more time behind bars,” they argued. According to this report, he pleaded guilty to lesser state prostitution charges.

But she decided that the federal guidelines recommended a much shorter sentence than the 30-years-to-life calculated by prosecutors. Maxwell’s lawyers say she should be sentenced to no more than 5¼ years, arguing that she is being scapegoated for Epstein’s crimes and had already spent significant time in jail. “Ms Maxwell is not a dangerous criminal or a habitual offender. Throughout the trial, the court heard how she imposed a"culture of silence. At the hearing, prosecutor Alison Moe urged Judge Nathan to impose something above guidelines and sentence Maxwell to multiple decades in prison, arguing that Maxwell has shown “absolutely no remorse” and that Maxwell and Epstein were “partners in crime.” “These kids had hopes and dreams for their future, and the defendant used those dreams as her tool to abuse them,” Ms Moe said. “The public does not need to be protected from Ms Maxwell and such considerations should have no weight in determining her sentence. “Those choices were hers and they have to have serious consequences. by design" at Epstein's properties, where staff were told to"see nothing, hear nothing and say nothing". He claimed he was attacked by his cellmate and was taken off suicide watch less than a week later.

” Judge Nathan will determine the sentence at the end of the hearing. “It made her vulnerable to Epstein, whom she met right after her father’s death. — Reuters Latest Stories .
