NEW YORK – On Tuesday, June 28, 60-year-old Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s girlfriend, received a 20-year sentence in federal prison after her conviction in December that found Maxwell guilty of aiding Epstein in multiple counts of Sex Trafficking underaged girls.
Maxwell was convicted earlier today on five counts including sex trafficking of a minor, transporting a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, and another three counts of conspiracy.
The Prosecutors office had recommended a maximum sentence of 30 -55 years to the New York Judge, while Maxwell’s Lawyer recommended four – five years behind bars. The Judge ultimately decided on his 20-year sentence explaining that Epstein sexually abused a plethora of children, hundreds of times throughout more than a decade and couldn’t have without the help of his longtime girlfriend.
Maxwell’s lawyers have reported she has been on suicide watch since her arrest in July of 2020.
