Speaking in Manhattan federal court, Maxwell called Epstein a"manipulative, cunning and controlling man” who fooled everyone in his orbit, and said she was “sorry” for the pain that his victims experienced. “It is the greatest regret of my life that I ever met Jeffrey Epstein,” Maxwell said. Maxwell was convicted in December last year of luring young girls to massage rooms to be molested by Jeffrey Epstein between 1994 and 2004. Maxwell (60) was convicted in December 2021 for recruiting and grooming girls to have sexual encounters with Epstein, then her boyfriend, between 1994 and 2004. Damian Williams, the US attorney for the Southern District of New York, said that the sentence “holds Ghislaine Maxwell accountable for perpetrating heinous crimes against children”. The stiff sentence of 20 years was the punctuation mark on a trial that explored the sordid rituals of a predator power couple who courted the rich and famous as they lured vulnerable girls as young as 14, and then exploited them. Wearing a prison-issued uniform, she spoke only to confirm she had read the pre-sentence report and discussed it with her legal team, saying:"I did have the opportunity to read it. Prosecutors said Epstein, who killed himself in 2019 while awaiting trial, sexually abused children hundreds of times over more than a decade, and couldn’t have done so without the help of Maxwell, his longtime companion and onetime girlfriend. Epstein, a convicted sex offender who once counted Britain’s Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton in his circle of wealthy and influential associates, was arrested by federal officials in July 2019, on sex-trafficking counts.

In December, a jury convicted Maxwell of sex trafficking, transporting a minor to participate in illegal sex acts and two conspiracy charges. 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. They called for Judge Nathan to hand down a sentence less than the US probation office’s recommended 20 years. US District Judge Alison J Nathan, who also imposed a $750,000 fine, said “a very significant sentence is necessary” and that she wanted to send an “unmistakable message” that these kinds of crimes would be punished. Prosecutors had asked the judge to give Maxwell 30 to 55 years in prison, while Maxwell's defence sought a lenient sentence of just five years. She was also found guilty of transporting a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity and conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of minors. Maxwell, wearing a blue prison uniform and a white mask to conform with coronavirus rules, sat quietly before the sentencing, looking ahead as Assistant US Attorney Alison Moe recounted how Maxwell subjected girls to “horrifying nightmares” by taking them to Epstein. During Maxwell’s high-profile trial in late 2021, the prosecutors successfully proved that she was “the key” to Epstein’s scheme of enticing young girls to give him massages, during which he would sexually abuse them. Ghislaine Maxwell attends her sentencing hearing in a courtroom sketch in New York. In their sentencing submissions, prosecutors urged Judge Nathan to impose a sentence of between 30 and 55 years for Maxwell's crimes. 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.
