Prosecutors ask judge to reject bail for Epstein’s ex-girlfriend

Court prosecutors in the southern district of New York today asked the court to reject the bail request for Ghislaine Maxwell, ex-girlfriend of the late financier Jeffrey Epstein and accused of sex trafficking teenagers, because it would present an “extreme risk” of escape.

Prosecutors told the judge federal Alison Nathan that the British, 58, could escape if she gets parole tomorrow in exchange for a $ 5 million bail, as her lawyers ask. According to prosecutors, she tried to do so on the last 2 days, when she was arrested at her residence in the city of Bradford, New Hampshire, where he hid.

According to prosecutors, at Ghislaine a cell phone was found wrapped in aluminum foil, “an effort, apparently wrong, so that it would not be detected”. They reported that a security guard at the residence told the FBI that the brother of Ghislaine hired a security company that former members of the British Armed Forces work to look after their property in New Hampshire. “He seems to be an expert in hidden living,” they said.

Tomorrow’s court hearing, the first of Ghislaine in New York, will be held remotely, at 1 pm local time. According to her lawyers, she plans to plead not guilty to the charges.

Ghislaine, who has passports from France, Great Britain and the United States, was charged on the last 2, by the Southern District Attorney of New York, for six crimes, related to recruiting girls – one of them 14 years old – in order to satisfy the wishes of Epstein and his rich and powerful friends, in addition to taking them to another state with this objective between 1994 and 1997.

Epstein’s ex-girlfriend is also accused of participating in abuse and lying to the court under oath. If found guilty, she faces up to 35 years in prison.

Epstein was arrested and charged with sex trafficking minors in July last year. He if self-declared innocent and, a month later, committed suicide in the prison where he was awaiting trial.
