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.
