Ghislaine Maxwell sex-trafficking trial ‘over-hyped’, brother insists
The Guardian says Before opening arguments in Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial for allegedly aiding the late financier Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual abuse of minor girls, the Briton’s brother protested over what he called “the most over-hyped trial of the century”.
The wealthy one-time associate of powerful people assured those around him he had plenty to live for while also hinting at despair, according to the documents.
Jeffrey Epstein documents reveal a master manipulator who claimed he couldn’t kill himself.
A family member would be in court at all times from Monday to show support, Ian Maxwell told the Associated Press. A woman who identified herself to court staff as a family member has attended all recent proceedings.
Prosecutors allege Ghislaine Maxwell, 59, groomed girls as young as 14 to have sex with Epstein and lied about her knowledge of his abuse during a defamation suit filed against her by an Epstein accuser, Virginia Giuffre.
