Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s Confidante, Arrested In New Hampshire – Ghislaine Maxwell, the long-time confidante of Jeffrey Epstein, was arrested by the FBI in New Hampshire on Thursday morning.
Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s Confidante, Arrested In New Hampshire:
Ghislaine Maxwell, 58, was reportedly arrested at 8.30 am in Bedford, New Hampshire, on charges brought by the Southern District of New York. Maxwell is expected to appear in federal court in New Hampshire later Thursday.
Maxwell has been accused by multiple young women of enabling, facilitating or participating in Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking ring. She has previously denied wrongdoing.
Ghislaine Maxwell, the youngest daughter of the late British publishing magnate Robert Maxwell, was a one-time girlfriend of Jeffrey Epstein’s and key presence at his side in his glittering social life, which often included rich, influential and powerful people from around the world in politics, the arts and science.
Former Jeffrey Epstein Companion Ghislaine Maxwell Arrested On Charges Related To Jeffrey Epstein:
Virginia Giuffre, one of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged victims, has said in a civil lawsuit that Ghislaine Maxwell recruited her into Epstein’s circle, where she claims Jeffrey Epstein forced her to have sex with him and friends including British royal Prince Andrew – who has strongly denied the allegations.
“Ghislaine Maxwell was heavily involved in the illegal sex. I understood her to be a very powerful person. She used Epstein’s money and he used her name and connections to gain power and prestige,” Virginia Giuffre stated in the declaration. “One way to describe Maxwell’s role was as the ‘madame.’ She assumed a position of trust for all the girls, including me.”
Ghislaine Maxwell allegedly used that trust to also sexually abuse dozens of girls herself and take undress photos of them, .
“She had sex with underage girls virtually every day when I was around her, and she was very forceful,” Giuffre said. “I first had sexual activities with her when I was approximately 15 at the Palm Beach mansion. I had many sexual activities with her over the next several years in Epstein’s various residences plus other exotic locations.”
Maxwell has called Giuffre’s bombshell claims “obvious lies.” Giuffre in response filed a defamation suit against Maxwell in 2015.
Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on July 6 last year at an airport in Teterboro, New Jersey, as he returned from Paris on a private jet.
Jeffrey Epstein, who was charged with one count of sex trafficking conspiracy and one count of sex trafficking, pleaded not guilty, killed himself in his Manhattan jail cell in August.
Prior to his death, Jeffrey Epstein sought out minors, some as young as 14, from at least 2002 through 2005 and paid them hundreds of dollars in cash for sex with him at his Upper East Side home and his estate in Palm Beach and worked with employees and associates to lure the girls to his residences and paid some of his victims to recruit other girls for him to abuse.
In the wake of Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide in August 2019, federal prosecutors have vowed that the investigation into Epstein’s conduct and anyone who may have been involved in recruiting or facilitating his sex with minors — perhaps including Ghislaine Maxwell and a coterie of young women who allegedly worked under her — accountable not only for his actions, but also for their own roles.
