Ghislaine Maxwell Convicted in Epstein Sex Trafficking Case

Ghislaine Maxwell, the longtime companion of Jeffrey Epstein, was convicted on December 29 by a New York jury on five of six charges brought against her, including sex trafficking of minors.

The jury deliberated for six days before reaching their verdict on Wednesday afternoon. Prosecutors welcomed the decision.

“A unanimous jury has found Ghislaine Maxwell guilty of one of the worst crimes imaginable – facilitating and participating in the sexual abuse of children," said US Attorney Damian Williams, in a video statement released on social media. “The road to justice has been far too long. But today justice has been done."
