Ghislaine Maxwell has been sentenced to 20 years in jail and given a $750,000 fine for helping convicted pedophile Jeffery Epstein to sexually abuse underage girls.

Maxwell, who lured the young girls to massage rooms for Epstein to abuse, was dressed in prisoner’s clothing as she listened to her sentencing hearing on Tuesday after entering the courtroom with shackles around her feet.

The 60-year-old former socialite daughter of British media mogul Robert Maxwell, looked straight ahead and showed no emotion as a judge in the Southern District of New York passed sentence in front of a packed public gallery.

ITV reports: Her accusers came face to face with her on Tuesday as several women read victim impact statements to the court – describing her as a “manipulative, cruel and merciless person.”

Minutes ahead of her sentencing, Maxwell apologised to the victims of her abuses and said she hopes her prison time will allow them “peace and finality.”

Speaking outside court, Annie Farmer, a victim who had testified during the trial, described her apology as “hollow.”

Oxford-raised Maxwell, who was labelled “dangerous” by the prosecution during her three-week trial last year, helped entice vulnerable teenagers to the disgraced financier’s various properties for him to sexually abuse between 1994 and 2004.

Sentencing Ghislaine Maxwell to 20 years in prison, Judge Alison Nathan told the court she “repeatedly, and over the course of many years participated in a horrific scheme to traffic young girls, some the age of 14.”

Judge Nathan said it was important that although “Epstein was central to this scheme” she was not being sentenced “as a proxy” for him.

She said: “The defendant’s conduct… was heinous and predatory.

“Ms Maxwell worked with Epstein to select young victims who were vulnerable and played a pivotal role in facilitating sexual abuse.”

Her victims were forced to live through the “painful, horrific and lasting impact of that trauma”, the judge added.

Victims of Maxwell told the court in the Southern District of New York of her “relentless and insatiable drive to meet the sexual needs of Epstein” and their “retraumatisation” over having to give evidence during the trial.

The socialite was convicted in December last year of sex trafficking minors, conspiracy to entice a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, and conspiracy to transport a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.

She was also found guilty of transporting a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity and conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of minors.

Maxwell’s defence lawyers sought a delay to sentencing proceedings through a motion filed on Saturday, in which they said she had been placed on “suicide watch” and was “not permitted to possess and review legal documents.”

Her attorneys had also previously moved for a retrial after it emerged one of the jurors in her trial had failed to disclose he was a victim of sexual abuse, but her conviction was upheld.

  1. And the young girls, all recruiting their friends for $$, instead of playing victims like you are in the media, you should take some accountability. We let people your age drive for ffs

    • And being flown on private jets around the world with celebrities pop stars models politicians is not the same as being kidnapped at knife or gun point and tied up blindfolded and slung into the back of a truck to be sent interstate to most likely wind up raped and murdered At all. Nothing like it. And that Court s a total disgrace to justice and they belong in jail for life.

    • 16 17 to s shouldn’t be allowed to claim to be kids for a start Not in an honest courtroom. Girls who willingly went to the island or the town house knowing perfectly well they were being enjoyed to perform sexual massages for thousands of dollars shouldn’t be allowed to act as if they were kidnapped off the streets at gunpoint The Courts shouldn’t be allowed to deceive the world

      • Being enployed to perform sexual massages. Which THEY KNEW was why they were being asked of they eanyed to go They knew EXACTLY what the deal was and GHISLANE S role was to make sure they knew and were willing and agreeable by their OWN FREE WILL .

  2. And so the truth is silenced. And the guilty totally protected and the Courts statement an a site lie, a massive hypocrisy and devious connivance to protect the most guilty. And was obviously, the whole thing set up to blackmail England into total surrender to the New world Order.

  3. First point These 4 young woman were on the Epstein scene from 1994 to 2004. So none hospitalised None suicide. None s life’s ruined in any measurable way at all.
    Second point If your old enough to remeber back to 1994 you will remeber there was not the rubbish”pedophilia “sex crimes news around that started mainly after 2000s. Pedophilia in the 90s was about children under 12. The law to make children aged up to 17 hadn’t been made then from memory.It was a different world than today Very different Especially about sex crimes They were violent rapists often serial killers back then Someone getting a rub a d tug massage was not considered anything of a serious criminal AT ALL. Not by ANYONE. That propaganda is all new.
    Point 3 Those middle aged women now have had 20 to 30 years to construct their tragic story of pain and suffering and each one stands tu collect tend or even hundreds of thousands from Epstein estate depending on how good their performance is
    Get the picture?
    Meanwhile Queen Elizabeth has been totally under their control as her name is the only so gle Christian name in Epsteins address book. Just Elizabeth.
    Andrew her favourite son
    The whole truth has not even been hi yed at by any media. But bottom line them using those girls has srt the New world order up Thryve painted a great story picture that’s secured them the whole world really as their prize The greatest story ever told in modern times and people are so hateful and stupid and ignorant and naive and gullible they swallowed it.

  4. Sentenced by a friendly New York City court and Judge, the same Court that’s out to get President Trump.
