Longtime partner of Jeffrey Epstein Ghislaine Maxwell found guilty in sex trafficking trial

Ghislaine Maxwell, longtime partner of Jeffrey Epstein, found guilty on five of six charges in sex trafficking trial.

Maxwell was found guilty of sex trafficking and four other charges by a New York City jury on Wednesday for her role in years of sexual abuse and sex trafficking alongside partner Jeffrey Epstein.

She was acquitted of one count of enticing a minor to travel across state lines to engage in an illegal sexual act. Follow below for more on the case and verdict.

Jury began deliberating on December 20 following closing arguments from both the prosecution and defense teams — three days after Maxwell took the stand only to say she will not be testifying.

Maxwell could face a lengthy prison term based on her convictions with sentencing to come at a later date.

Four women testified throughout the trial that they were sexually abused by Maxwell’s former partner Jeffrey Epstein and that Maxwell “facilitated and sometimes participated” in their abuse.
