Jeffrey Epstein was found deceased in August of 2019 in his jail cell while awaiting trial for charges of sex-trafficking. The news made headlines, as did the case and controversy he had been shrouded in. His passing led many of his accusers to feel as though they hadn’t gotten closure after all they’d allegedly suffered at the hands of Epstein.
Also embroidered in the controversy and the charges, was of course Ghislaine Maxwell, a known British socialite and an apparently pivotal cog in the sex enterprise of Epstein’s, according to the Miami Herald and other sources since the case was brought to light. She allegedly helped Epstein abuse 4 under age girls in all.
The feds apparently were on the case for a decade, amassing evidence, evidence that points also to one Ghislaine Maxwell. The crimes were apparently committed throughout the late nineties and early 2000s. The death of Epstein provided quite the hiccup for the feds and prosecution, but it looks as though someone will finally be made accountable – at least in part – for what occurred.
The death of Epstein was said to be a suicide, but Epstein’s family – specifically his brother – do not at all believe that it was a suicide at all. Those implications are quite severe and only shroud the decade-long case in that much more controversy.
Ghislaine Maxwell has claimed that she was but a victim in the goings-on, as does her family, thus corroborating her story. The prosecution does not at all have a cut and dry case. There will be many factors at play here an she could walk, quite easily, and rather unscathed.
Both parties have ben decimated on social media. The picture painted of the two quite a terrible one, and although it shouldn’t, this is where social media has a part in influencing the outcomes of political races and yes even criminal trials, as say the reign of Donald Trump quite proves.
Although Maxwell is British, her trial is set to start in Manhattan on Monday.
