Ghislaine Maxwell files request for retrial over juror’s revelation of own sexual abuse

The Independent says Lawyers for Ghislaine Maxwell have formally requested her conviction be overturned and the case go to a retrial, after one of the jurors in her high-profile case revealed he was himself a victim of sexual abuse as a minor.

Maxwell, 60, was convicted on five counts of sex trafficking and other crimes for recruiting and grooming teenage girls to have sexual encounters with the late financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

The British socialite is due to be sentenced on 28 June and faces up to 65 years in prison.

Wednesday’s front pages focus heavily on President Joe Biden’s decision to not extend the 31 August withdrawal date of US troops in Afghanistan – despite PM Boris Johnson and other world leaders pleas during a G7 meeting on the Afghanistan crisis.

The papers say it is now the last chance to escape the Taliban, with some describing the situation as a “failure” and slamming President Biden for seemingly backing Trump’s “America first” policy. 

Elsewhere, the papers carry front-page tributes to Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts – who has died at the age of 80.
