GHISLANE MAXWELL ARRAIGNED PLEADS NOT GUILTY

GHISLANE MAXWELL ARRAIGNED

A federal judge ordered Ghislaine Maxwell, the longtime associate of Jeffrey Epstein, held without bond Tuesday.

The British socialite pleaded not guilty to charges that she helped procure young victims for the disgraced financier’s child sex trafficking operation that began more than 25 years ago.

U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan said Maxwell posed “a substantial risk of flight” given her considerable wealth,

International connections and the charges against her, noting that she faced a maximum of 35 years in prison, if convicted.

Even electronic monitoring and the posting of private security guards would be “insufficient,” Nathan said. “The risk of flight is too great.”

Nathan set a trial date of July 12, 2021, meaning that Maxwell is likely to spend at least the next year in a New York federal detention center.
