Epstein case: Ghislaine Maxwell sentenced to 20 years in prison

-

Published on: 06/28/2022 – 23:42 Ghislaine Maxwell received a 20-year prison sentence in New York on Tuesday after being found guilty, at the end of 2021, of sex trafficking of minors on behalf of her ex- companion, financier Jeffrey Epstein. The Briton for the first time expressed her “sympathy for all the victims”, while rejecting the main responsibility on her former accomplice, who died in prison. She will probably end her life in prison in New York: 60-year-old ex-British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, convicted at the end of 2021 of sex trafficking of minors on behalf of the deceased American financier Jeffrey Epstein, was sentenced on Tuesday to 20 years in prison. When Manhattan federal court judge Alison Nathan handed down that sentence for the ‘heinous predatory’ sex crimes, Ghislaine Maxwell, shoulder-length hair, masked and dressed in black pants and d ‘a gray shirt, remained almost impassive. But just before being fixed on her fate, the sexagenarian, imprisoned in New York for already two years, had for the first time expressed her “sympathy for all the victims” and s’ was said to be “sorry for the suffering felt” for sex crimes committed between 1994 and 2004 against teenage girls aged 14 to 17. Ghislaine Maxwell, however, placed the main responsibility on her former companion and accomplice Jeffrey Epstein, the q uel committed suicide in prison in New York in August 2019, “a manipulator (…) who deceived all those who were in his orbit”. “Heinous crimes against children”Judge Nathan replied that she was “not punished instead of Epstein” and federal prosecutor Damian Williams blasted his “heinous crimes against children” while congratulating himself that “no one is above the law” in the United States. sentence was greeted with relief by the victims. Annie Farmer, a 40-year-old who painfully recounted during the trial at the end of 2021 how she fell as a teenager into the clutches of the Maxwell-Epstein couple, said she was satisfied that “it is never too late for truth and responsibility. “. Another, Sarah Ransome, launched in front of the press: “Yes, Ghislaine must die in prison”. “I spent the last 17 years in my own prison for what she, Jeffrey (Epstein) and all the accomplices did to me. I was raped many times. Sometimes I was raped three times by day (…). There was a constant influx of girls who were raped over and over again”, said this recognized victim but who was not a civil party in the trial of Ghislaine Maxwell. Appeal After her trial in New York in last November and December which had found her guilty of sex trafficking of minors for Jeffrey Epstein, the sexagenarian faced up to 55 years of criminal imprisonment. Her lawyers, who announced that they would appeal the sentence, had already asked mi -June a sentence of less than 20 years in prison and denounced the solitary confinement of their client in his New York prison, the prison administration citing a risk of “suicide”. The lawyers had also invoked, in vain, the responsibility and harmful influence of the british tycoon that of the press Robert Maxwell – an “authoritarian” father who died in 1991 when he mysteriously fell from his yacht – and of Jeffrey Epstein. Her trial had portrayed her as a “sophisticated predator” who acted as an “adult” to attract, seduce young people girls and deliver them to Epstein at his residences in Florida, Manhattan, New Mexico and the Virgin Islands.
