NEW YORK (AP) — Ghislaine Maxwell 's defense attorneys sought Wednesday to undermine a key accuser’s allegation that the British socialite helped financier Jeffrey Epstein sexually abuse the woman for years, starting when she was 14.
that she and Epstein were “partners in crime.” The defense has countered by claiming she’s being made a scapegoat for 66-year-old Epstein, who killed himself in his Manhattan jail cell in 2019 as he awaited his own sex trafficking trial.On Tuesday,the accuser described numerous sexual encounters
with Maxwell and Epstein that began in 1994 and continued through 1997. When recounting the first time she was abused by Epstein, she said she was “frozen in fear.”Another time, she said she was taken to a massage room where he and Maxwell both took advantage of her. Other encounters involved sex toys or turned into oral sex “orgies” with other young women and Maxwell, she added.
On cross examination, the defense also attacked the witness’ credibility by asking why she waited over 20 years to report the alleged abuse by Maxwell to law enforcement. And Maxwell’s attorney asked Jane, an actor, about her television roles — a cancer patient, a car crash victim, someone with mental health issues, a prostitute — suggesting she may have applied her professional craft to her testimony. headtopics.com
The last one “was not my favorite role,” Jane said before pushing back on Menninger’s characterizations of her work as melodramatic.“You want to call it ‘melodramatic.’ I prefer ‘dramatic,’” she said.She later choked up when a prosecutor asked her at the conclusion of her testimony why she didn’t reveal everything about her experience with Epstein in her initial meetings with prosecutors.
“Because it was too difficult — too difficult emotionally, too difficult on every level,” she said.Two of Maxwell’s siblings, Kevin and Isabel, were among the spectators in the courtroom on Wednesday. Thefamily has insistedshe’s innocent.Outside court, Kevin Maxwell told reporters it was the first time he’d seen his jailed sister in more than 500 days and thanked deputy U.S. Marshals for allowing her to briefly speak to him before they took her out of the courtroom.
“Personally, it gave me a tremendous sense of to be close to her, to be able to actually see her in the flesh,” he said.___This story has been corrected to show that one of the Maxwell siblings present Wednesday is Kevin, not Howard.Read more: The Associated Press »
