Maxwell Ghislaine: After being locked up for almost two years, convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell steadfastly maintains she’s the victim.
In her quest to quash victim statements, her team is reverting to s$ut shaming and legal manoeuvres with one survivor, Sarah Ransome.
Her team is trying to silence four victims from speaking at the 60-year-old’s sentencing on June 28.
Moreover, lawyers are arguing that four accusers’ ages mean that they are not “statutory crime victims” who would have the right to speak at sentencing.
According to The Guardian: ”In making their arguments, Maxwell’s legal team publicly included three impact statements… this appears to be an unusual move, as prosecutors typically file these remarks. This seemingly unusual move also means that Maxwell’s lawyers – not the victims and not those representing them – made the decision about when the victims’ words would be public.”
Maxwell Ghislaine: her sentencing document is full of lies, omissions and arrogance. There is not a word for the survivors, in our opinion.
“Ghislaine Maxwell is not an heiress, villain, or vapid socialite. She has worked hard her entire life. She has energy, drive, commitment, a strong work ethic, and desire to do good in the world. She has supported friends and family through tough times and personal crisis and currently is assisting women in her unit at the MDC.” Maxwell submission.
In seeking 55 years jail, the government is absolutely not mincing its words:
“If anything stands out from the defendant’s sentencing submission, it is her complete failure to address her offense conduct and her utter lack of remorse. Instead of showing even a hint of acceptance of responsibility, the defendant makes a desperate attempt to cast blame wherever else she can.
On that score, the defendant’s attempt to cast aspersions on the Government for prosecuting her, and her claim that she is being held responsible for Epstein’s crimes, are both absurd and offensive. Maxwell was an adult who made her own choices. She made the choice to sexually exploit numerous underage girls.
She made the choice to conspire with Epstein for years, working as partners in crime and causing devastating harm to vulnerable victims. She should be held accountable for her disturbing role in an extensive child exploitation scheme.”
In her sentencing submission, the former socialite again claims she met Epstein after her dad died, when she was ripe for manipulation.
