Ghislaine Maxwell is Expected to Appear for Arraignment This Week
Last week, we reported that top Jeffrey Epstein confidant Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested in New Hampshire on multiple charges, including “conspiracy to entice minors into sexual acts and facilitating a sex-trafficking operation. Some of the victims included girls as young as 14.”
Now, according to a letter filed by prosecutors on Sunday night, Maxwell is expected to be transferred from Merrimack County Jail in New Hampshire, where she currently sits, to the Southern District of New York for her upcoming court appearance.
The letter reads, “[T]he Government has consulted with defense counsel, Christian Everdell, Esq., who has requested that the arraignment, initial appearance, and bail hearing in this matter take place on July 10, 2020.”
As we reported at the time, the unsealed court documents concerning Maxwell included one count of conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, one count of enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, one count of conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity and two counts of perjury.
Justice for Epstein’s and Maxwell’s victims cannot come fast enough.
