Ghislaine Maxwell: Lawyers call for retrial over juror comments
BBC News says lawyers for Ghislaine Maxwell say she deserves a new trial after a juror told media that he used his own experience of being sexually abused to persuade other jurors who doubted witnesses.
Prosecutors also asked the judge to open an inquiry into the statements.
Maxwell was found guilty last week of grooming underage girls to be abused by Jeffrey Epstein.
The juror said he told fellow jurors that, like some of Epstein’s victims, he had been abused as a child.
