Annie Farmer is one of the minor victims at the centre of the New York criminal case against Ghislaine Maxwell.
Annie Farmer, who holds a Doctorate of Psychology told ABC’s 20/20: “Maxwell was a really important part of the grooming process.”
“They worked together as a team, I think.”
She told the court at one of Maxwell’s bail hearings: ”She is a sexual predator who groomed and abused me and countless other children and young women.”
“I believe that she is a psychopath… she has demonstrated a complete failure to accept responsibility in any way for her actions and demonstrated a complete lack of remorse for her central role in procuring girls for Epstein to abuse.”
Dr Farmer is referred to as minor victim two on the Maxwell indictment, but has waived her right to confidentiality.
She claimed Maxwell and Epstein sexually assaulted her at age 16 at his New Mexico ranch.
Who is Annie Farmer
But Maxwell’s team said during the trial, her motive was money, something her lawyers have dismissed.
In December, one of Maxwell’s lawyers, Laura Meningher wrote to to the court: ”The fact that [Farmer] seeks money from the estate and from Ms. Maxwell, in the millions of dollars, at the same time she is a government witness in an upcoming criminal trial on the same topic is reason enough to suspect that her newly asserted memories of abuse — without corroboration — are not based on the truth or a desire for ‘justice’ so much as her desire for cash.”
Sigrid McCawley, an attorney for Dr Farmer, responded to the court on Thursday, slamming Maxwell’s letter as a “vicious, victim-blaming” attack.
