Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s former lover, is said to have agreed to a plea agreement with the federal authorities as part of an investigation into Epstein’s social circle, according to The Guardian on Thursday.
On Wednesday, a jury convicted Maxwell guilty of five of six counts stemming from her alleged role in Epstein’s sex abuse of minors. She now faces a sentence of 65 years in prison.
As reported, the former British socialite may try to get a lighter sentence by identifying influential interlopers associated with her late partner.
Defense attorneys and sexual-crimes prosecutors, on the other hand, have questioned whether Maxwell has any information that the government does not already have, casting doubt on the government’s willingness to bargain.
“It all depends on who she would be collaborating with and what she has to give,” said Jeffrey Lichtman, a defense attorney. “There is a good chance she has previously attempted to work things out, and it didn’t work out.
People who are below them in the criminal hierarchy don’t want to work with someone participating in a criminal activity, he said.
She claims that the government attempt to keep Epstein out of Maxwell’s trial was deliberate and that he was a victim of his own success.
She remarked, “They didn’t need anything else to show conspiracy.” “They didn’t have to go overboard. The victim’s testimony had certain flaws, but they were more than made up for by the other evidence.”
Murphy predicted that legal action against Prince Andrew would be the next step in the Epstein inquiry.
Virginia Roberts Giuffre has launched a legal complaint against Andrew, claiming that she was trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein and forced to have sex with his pals, including Prince Andrew, and that the prince was aware that she was young. The charges against Prince Andrew are categorically false, according to the prince.
According to Murphy, Prince Andrew might be the only shoe to fall. For the most part, the doors to litigation have closed, and I’m not aware of any others that may reveal confidential information.”
