Jeffrey Epstein Confidant Ghislaine Maxwell Finally Arrested, Charges Brought
On Thursday morning, Ghislaine Maxwell, the top confidant of notorious pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, 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, Fox News reported.
Maxwell had allegedly been hiding out in Paris before her arrest.
There have been reports of others who helped run the operation of grooming these girls for Epstein, but Maxwell, the daughter of the late British media mogul Robert Maxwell, is supposedly the main one.
The charges include, according to unsealed court documents, 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.
Prosecutors for the Southern District of New York allege that between 1994-1997, Maxwell “assisted, facilitated, and contributed to Jeffrey Epstein’s abuse of minor girls by, among other things, helping Epstein to recruit, groom, and ultimately abuse victims known to Maxwell and Epstein to be under the age of 18.
“Moreover, in an effort to conceal her crimes, Maxwell repeatedly lied when questioned about her conduct, including in relation to some of the minor victims… when providing testimony under oath in 2016.” The investigators also explained how Maxwell lured underage girls to Epstein.
According to the New York Post, investigators are possibly also looking at Prince Andrew, who was a friend of Epstein’s and is accused of having sex three times with one of Epstein’s accusers, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, in 2001 when she was 17 in Maxwell’s London townhouse.
The Post also reported that since, with Maxwell’s arrest, Epstein’s sex ring has finally been taken down entirely, his victims are celebrating today.
As we all should be. Justice can finally be served.
