Where’s the client list? She & Epstein worked conjointly. She, the recruiter, he the mastermind. Why not get your client to talk? Didn’t Epstein have a gigantic oil painting of Bill Clinton in his townhouse? So much more to this. My god. Truth, ppl, truth. Not that interested in the ‘reactions’… WeWantTheList
She will commit suicide with liquid hand soap. Ms. Maxwell’s attorney is almost as big a liar as her client. They’re both equally revolting no doubt. GM should now be tried for the international espionage, related to sex trafficking and political blackmail, she and JE engaged in for years on behalf of Mossad and the CIA.
A lack of testimony from Ghislaine Maxwell and a tendency to ignore the fact Jeffery Epstein presided like a monarch over everyone has meant the American society and legal teams have pursued the wrong person because Epstein has died It was not a towering day for Justice. The only woman involved takes the fall for a bunch of men who are above the law! Not a thing has changed!
WHY HAVE THE ' VICTIMS' ONLY NAMED PRICK ANDREW AS AN ABUSER NEVER A WORD ABOUT TRUMP/ CLINTON/ GATES + + PLUS ALL THE OTHERS THE MEDIA ARE CORRUPT AS EPSTEIN AND THE REST. Where's The Client's List ? Are all the victims just settling with the sex trafficking 'customers' privately? Is that why a person was sentenced to 20 years in prison...yet not one man has been brought to justice. The entire story is just whacked.
Ghislaine Maxwell sentencing - live: Jeffrey Epstein's ex-partner to learn fate after conviction over sexual abuse of underage girlsThe former socialite is being sentenced in New York following her conviction on five counts of sex trafficking, in connection with late billionaire Jeffrey Epstein's sexual abuse of vulnerable underage girls in the 1990s and early 2000s.
She is equally guilty as epstein. She facilitated all his sexual activities by procuring all the girls that epstein used and to make it worse She participated and watched I knew it 😁 So the media ('The Blaze' anyway) tried to pass along a photo of some random woman and insinuate that was Ghislaine. The media is the bane of society! Bottom line, there have still been no photos of Ghislaine. Why not?
of course ghislaine max’s attorney looks like what you’s expect a child rapist traffickers attorney would look like…..🙄 Are they coming for the Clinton’s finally. ? And when do we prosecute the clients? There is no offer without demand. The whole truth most be exposed. A very small price to pay for ruining so many young girls’ lives. She wishes she had never met Epstein!?!? She should have thought about that years ago when told/asked to procure for him. How come she never thought of saying “NO!” and walking away?
Only in America a person can be found guilty of Sex Trafficking with out any customers being supeana prove of sexual act. BillClinton ..USSupremeCourt 10DowningStreet She’s guilty as sin and deserves EXACTLY what she got! illuminati elite
British socialite sentenced to 20 years in prison by American court for sex traffickingBritish socialite Ghislaine Maxwell has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for luring young girls to massage rooms for disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein to molest....
Hope all the men she procured for also go to jail. She can appeal but won't do any good! Public opinion not jury! SO SHUT up lawyers for guilty people! Maxwell knew what she was doing ....she deserves a lot longer than 20 years They need to throw away the key! G's attorney sounds like Elaine Bredehoft. 🙄🤡
Not a single name. But we know that Amber's dog stepped on a bee. It's over..13 years at a min security facility and GMax hits the road..she will keep stum and not rat anybody out..she has had a result tbh.. Ok, now that she is in jail, can we now move on to who used this ‘service’ and had sex with underage girls for a fee? I don’t care who. I don’t care. But if they paid for sex with kids then they also belong in jail.

Peter Mandelson's mates (he who is now advising Starmer's Labour) 20 years for trafficking young birthing persons to Jeff, only Jeff, and definitely nobody else whatsoever.
She was treated more fairly than her victims. Ok so who are the men to whom she trafficked underage girls? Why aren’t they being brought to justice? When the truth finally comes out years from now you'll all learn about doctors, lawyers, politicians who all visited the infamous Island and have never been mentioned because Epstein was snuffed out in jail.
People have no clue. She was part of a world wide peed ring involving high level politicians, Hollywood, music industry, media, tech and business - all kept quiet and performing the sickest acts you could possible imagine.Your fave musician & celeb has been there! WAKE THE FK UP Watch a documentary. There there were dozens of people involved, and Epstein knew he was going to go to jail for life, and he was most obviously going to talk about everyone else which is why Trump had him silenced.
If you are an attorney, would you have defended Ghislaine Maxwell? I'm not an attorney, but, I don't think ethically I could have defended her. My conscience wouldn't let me. Wish that her blackmail recordings be exposed... My advise to Ghislaine: DO NOT APPEAL...DO NOT APPEAL!! Just in case YOU didn't notice: you already got away with way less than you bargained for. My prediction: in APPEAL the sentence will go UP from 20 to 25 years without the possibility of probation for the first 15 years!
We want the client list ONLY 20?!? Fuck that I’d throw the whole fucking key away

Ghislaine Maxwell Sentenced to 20 Years for Helping Jeffrey Epstein Sexually Abuse Teen Girls Ghislaine Maxwell Sentenced to 20 Years for Helping Jeffrey Epstein Sexually Abuse Teen Girls By Updated: June 28, 2022 3:53 PM EDT | Originally published: June 28, 2022 3:01 PM EDT (NEW YORK) — Ghislaine Maxwell, the jet-setting socialite who once consorted with royals, presidents and billionaires, was sentenced to 20 years in prison Tuesday for helping the financier Jeffrey Epstein sexually abuse underage girls.Latest updates by Richard Williams 19:30:54 Ghislaine Maxwell sentenced to 20 years in prison She also receives a fine of $750,000 (£615,000).London’s Metropolitan Police placed under special measures amid failures Judge Nathan said it was important that although"Epstein was central to this scheme" she was not being sentenced"as a proxy" for him.Make informed decisions with the FT Keep abreast of significant corporate, financial and political developments around the world.
The stiff sentence 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. 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 who they said sometimes also participated in the abuse. "Maxwell is not being punished as a proxy of Epstein, but rather for her role in the criminal conduct," she says. In December, a jury convicted Maxwell of sex trafficking, transporting a minor to participate in illegal sex acts and two conspiracy charges.. U. Her conduct was heinous and predatory.S.
District Judge Alison J. She says a"substantial sentence" will send an"unmistakable message" to those who commit sexual abuse and engage in the trafficking of underage victims." Continuing her sentencing remarks, Judge Alison Nathan told the court:"The damage done to these girls was incalculable. 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 her 30 to 55 years in prison, while the 60-year-old Maxwell’s defense sought a lenient sentence of just five years. She says the court agrees"that whether you are rich or powerful or entirely unknown, nobody is above the law". Maxwell, wearing a blue prison uniform and a white mask to conform with coronavirus rules, looked to one side as the sentence was announced, but otherwise did not react. Whether you are rich or powerful, nobody is above the law. “We will continue to live with the harm she caused us,” said Annie Farmer, one of the four accusers who testified against Maxwell at trial, inside the courtroom before the sentencing. She says she "empathised deeply with all the victims in this case".
When she had a chance to speak, Maxwell said she empathized with the survivors and that it was her “greatest regret of my life that I ever met Jeffrey Epstein.” Maxwell called him “a manipulative, cunning and controlling man who lived a profoundly compartmentalized life,” echoing her defense attorneys’ assertions that Epstein was the true mastermind. "I believe Jeffrey Epstein fooled all of those in his orbit," she says. Maxwell, who denies abusing anyone, said she hoped that her conviction and her “unusual incarceration” bring some “measure of peace and finality.” Nathan refused to let Maxwell escape culpability, making clear that Maxwell was being punished for her own actions, not Epstein’s. Jeffrey Epstein should have stood before you. She called the crimes “heinous and predatory” and said Maxwell as a sophisticated adult woman provided the veneer of safety as she “normalized” sexual abuse through her involvement, encouragement and instruction.
Several survivors described their sexual abuse, including Farmer, who said her sister and herself tried to go public with their stories about Epstein and Maxwell two decades ago, only to be shut down by the powerful couple through threats and influence with authorities. In 2009. Inside the crowded courtroom, three of Maxwell’s siblings sat in a row behind her. Most of the others in attendance were members of the media. But today it is for me to be sentenced. Assistant U.S. "I hope my conviction brings closure.
Attorney Alison Moe recounted how Maxwell subjected girls to “horrifying nightmares” by taking them to Epstein. “They were partners in crime together and they molested these kids together,” she said, calling Maxwell “a person who was indifferent to the suffering of other human beings. "I also acknowledge the pain this case has brought to those that l love.” Epstein and Maxwell’s associations with some of the world’s most famous people were not a prominent part of the trial, but mentions of friends like Bill Clinton, Donald Trump and Britain’s Prince Andrew showed how the pair exploited their connections to impress their prey. Over the past 17 years, scores of women have accused Epstein of abuse them, with many describing Maxwell as the madam who recruited them. "May this day help you travel from the darkness into the light. The trial, though, revolved around allegations from Four testified that they were abused as teens in the 1990s and early 2000s at Epstein’s mansions in Florida, New York, New Mexico and the Virgin Islands.
Three were identified in court only by their first names or pseudonyms to protect their privacy: Jane, a television actress; Kate, an ex-model from the U. She contests the sentence proposed by the prosecution, saying is the same as Jeffrey Epstein would have faced and that he is"far more culpable than Ghislaine Maxwell".K.; and Carolyn, now a mom recovering from drug addiction. While at FIT, I took advantage of different volunteer opportunities and internships in the fashion industry to provide a foundation for my career. The fourth was Farmer, the sole accuser to identify herself in court by her real name, after speaking out publicly. They described how Maxwell charmed them with conversation and gifts and promises that Epstein could use his wealth and connections to help fulfill their dreams. I performed well and was asked to stay on as a part-time employee.
Then, they testified, she led them to give massages to Epstein that turned sexual and played it off as normal. Carolyn testified that she was one of several underprivileged teens who lived near Epstein’s Florida home in the early 2000s and took up an offer to massage him in exchange for $100 bills in what prosecutors described as “a pyramid of abuse. In the fall semester of my senior year at FIT Ghislaine Maxwell came into the store, where she was a frequent customer.” Maxwell made all the arrangements, Carolyn told the jury, even though she knew the girl was only 14 at the time. The allegations against Epstein first surfaced publicly in 2005. Ghislaine was electrifying and we hit it off immediately. He pleaded guilty to sex charges in Florida and served 13 months in jail, much of it in a work-release program as part of a deal criticized as lenient.
Afterward, he was required to register as a sex offender. She told me that her boss (who I later came to understand was Jeffrey Epstein) was close friends with Les Wexner, the CEO and founder of The Limited, which owned Henri Bendel at the time. In the years that followed, many women sued Epstein over alleged abuse. One, Virginia Giuffre, claimed that Epstein and Maxwell had also pressured her into sexual trysts with other powerful men, including Prince Andrew. This was a courtesy I frequently extended to my high-end clients. All of those men denied the allegations and Giuffre ultimately settled a lawsuit against Andrew out of court. Federal prosecutors in New York revived the case against Epstein after stories by the Miami Herald in 2018 brought new attention to his crimes. When I arrived, the hotel concierge told me Ms Maxwell was in the bar and wanted me to meet someone.
He was arrested in 2019, but killed himself a month later. Eleven months after his death, Maxwell was arrested at a New Hampshire estate. That night in the hotel was the first of many times they sexually assaulted me. A U.S. I returned to my classes at FIT and continued work at Henri Bendel, but I started to crack., British and French citizen, she has remained in a federal jail in New York City since then as her lawyers repeatedly criticize her treatment, saying she was even unjustly placed under suicide watch days before sentencing.
Prosecutors say the claims about the jail are exaggerated and that Maxwell has been treated better than other prisoners. Shortly after my first meeting with Epstein and Maxwell, I was offered a full-time position at Henri Bendel. Her lawyers also fought to have her conviction tossed on the grounds of juror misconduct. Days after the verdict, one juror gave media interviews in which he disclosed he had been sexually abused as a child — something he hadn’t told the court during jury selection. I had aspirations of going to law school and knew I could not do so without my undergraduate degree, so I declined it. Maxwell’s lawyers said she deserved a new trial. A judge disagreed. I didn't understand why until she told me that she and Epstein were responsible for giving me that opportunity and that in turning it down I was being ungrateful.
At least eight women submitted letters to the judge, describing the sexual abuse they said they endured for having met Maxwell and Epstein. Six of Maxwell’s seven living siblings wrote to plead for leniency. Nevertheless, I rebuffed the guilt-trip ploy, completed my coursework and got my FIT degree from FIT, at which point I left Henri Bendel and took a position at Bloomingdales. Maxwell’s fellow inmate also submitted a letter describing how Maxwell has helped to educate other inmates over the last two years. Anne Holve and Philip Maxwell, her eldest siblings, wrote that her relationship with Epstein began soon after the 1991 death of their father, the British newspaper magnate Robert Maxwell. I never wanted to or expected to see them again. They said Robert Maxwell had subjected his daughter to “frequent rapid mood swings, huge rages and rejections.
” “This led her to becoming very vulnerable to abusive and powerful men who would be able to take advantage of her innate good nature,” they wrote. When I asked her how she knew where I was, she said she asked my colleagues at Henri Bendel. Before her fate was announced, Maxwell looked down and scribbled on a notepad as Sarah Ransome — an accuser whose allegations weren’t included in this trial — spoke of the lasting harm to her life, gazing directly at Maxwell several times . Ransome, who twice tried to die by suicide, finally drew a look from Maxwell when she said: “You broke me in unfathomable ways but you did not break my spirit. I tried to resist but eventually she wore me down and I began spending time with them again.” More Must-Read Stories From TIME .
