Convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell. is back in the news again. As it was widely reported a few weeks ago, additional charges of alleged sex trafficking were brought against history’s most notorious madame. On Friday, Maxwell finally was granted her day in court though set herself up for what is poised to be a ginormous failure.
Maxwell reportedly arrived in the New York courtroom with hair past her shoulders; in a blue prison outfit, and shackled by the ankles. Multiple reports note that Maxwell spoke only to waive her right to read the indictment against her and to speak privately to her attorney. Her attorney read aloud for her that she intended to plead not guilty.
Maxwell ‘s entire future hangs in the balance now that prosecutors have her on federal charges. Since last summer, prosecutors have woven together an extraordinary tale of deceit; manipulation, trafficking, and obscene wealth tying all of such back to Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein. But as many know Epstein killed himself (“allegedly”) in prison having turned up dead before he could see his day in court.
So far Maxwell has denied all of the charges against her and her trial is set for July.
