Prosecutors have heard Maxwell’s ex-partner Jeffrey Epstein naked a woman who massaged between 2001 and 2004.
Federal prosecutors in the United States on Monday filed new charges against the late sex offender Jeffrey Epsteinin suspected accomplice Ghislaine Maxwellia against. The matter was reported, among other things CNN and New York Times.
Prosecutors consider Maxwell to have committed trafficking in minors several times between 2001 and 2004. At the time, a 14-year-old victim was recruited, according to them, to rub Epstein naked at this Palm Beach apartment in Florida.
The massages are said to have included sexual acts. According to prosecutors, Maxwell and Epstein, who were dating at the same time, encouraged the girl to recruit more peers to offer naked massages to Epstein.
In the past, prosecutors have seen Maxwell assisting Epstein in recruiting underage girls, but he has not been charged with human trafficking. In addition, the crimes in the previous charges are much older, from 1994-1997.
However, according to the new indictment, Maxwell had often acted as the payer for the girl who massaged Epstein. The girl was paid hundreds of US dollars for each massage.
British-born Maxwell has been in the possession of the authorities since July 2, when he was arrested in a large arrest operation in his hiding place in the state of New Hampshire.
Maxwell’s days, who have lived in social life around the world, have since been spent mainly in a small prison cell in New York. Epstein, who was arrested in 2019, in turn died in pre-trial detention in August of that year.
Maxwell can face up to 35 years in prison. The 59-year-old woman has previously denied all charges.
