Ghislaine Maxwelll, 58, the alleged accomplice and ex-girlfriend of the deceased sex trafficker, Jeffrey Epstein, has been arrested and charged with six counts including the enticement of minors.
Epstein, who committed suicide in 2019 while in jail, was being charge with the sexual assault and abuse of young women and girls between the years of 2002 through 2005.
Epstein is believed to have had several accomplices that helped lure in his victims – as young as 14-years-old - to his homes and estates in Manhattan, Palm Beach, Fla., Santa Fe, N.M., and London.
Those accomplices are believed to be some of the women Epstein abused as well as his longtime girlfriend, Ghisaline Maxwell.
Since Epstein’s death the public has demanded that all accomplices be charged and punished for their crimes and his. Maxwell was named in multiple lawsuits by some of Epstein’s alleged victims.
Maxwell was arrested by the FBI the morning of July 1, 2020 in New Hampshire and charged by New York federal prosecutors with six counts in connection with the federal case.
Maxwell is charged with one count of conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, one count of enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, one count of conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, one count of transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity and two counts of perjury according to the indictment.
CNN reports that Maxwell was arrested without incident, is being charged in the Southern District of New York but will make her initial appearance in New Hampshire.
