Don’t Let Ghislaine Maxwell Name Victims, Feds Tell Judge
Rossmiller said that both the Crime Victims’ Rights Act and ‘common decency’ should compel the judge to protect the victims’ privacy.
He charged that the defense’s argument is based on their belief that some victims’ had gotten a ‘benefit’ by publicly identifying themselves previously.
‘Beyond the offensive notion that victims of sexual abuse experience a “benefit” by making the incredibly difficult decision to share their experience publicly, the suggestion that victims who receive this supposed “benefit” should receive fewer protections than the law ordinarily offers to victims in criminal cases is alarming,’ he wrote.

The Daily Mail: Ghislaine Maxwell cried as she was denied bail on Tuesday, with a judge ruling she must stay locked up until her trial in July of 2021
The British socialite, 58, pleaded not guilty to the sex trafficking charges brought against her
She hung her head as she learned her fate, wearing a prison-issued brown top and with her normally short hair now long and swept back into a bun
Judge Alison Nathan ruled Maxwell was a significant flight risk, citing her ‘substantial international’ ties and ‘extraordinary financial resources’
Maxwell appeared via video, accused of grooming girls as young as 14 for Jeffrey Epstein to abuse between 1994 and 1997
She had offered a $5 million bond co-signed by two of her sisters and backed up by more than $3.75 million in property in the UK
Prosecutors fought for no bail, presenting evidence that she is ‘skilled at living in hiding’, citing her three passports and claimed she is worth more than $10M
The sealed court filings in the case — a now-settled civil defamation lawsuit filed against Maxwell in 2015 by Virginia Roberts Giuffre — are said to contain the names of hundreds of people, some famous and some not, who socialized, traveled or worked with Epstein over the span of more than a decade. The late financier has previously been linked to a coterie of high-profile business leaders, scientists, royalty and politicians.
Epstein, a convicted sex offender, was found dead in an apparent suicide in prison while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges that he denied.
This is Sarah Kellen Vickers (above right with her pervert boss Jeffrey Epstein)
She now lives Miami with her husband, Brian, a former Nascar driver, who was forced out of racing by poor health.
But who is Brian Vickers?
In an article that raised eyebrows throughout his sport, Vickers was described in Maxim in 2011 as partaking in a “relentless connoisseur’s pursuit of pussy in all its forms.” This is true because I never could have made something up that is so poetic but seedy as that magazine’s description.
Maxim reported: “The night is ending-or nearly. BV’s (Brian Vickers) crew wanders thirstily into the Hiro Ballroom. To a female companion, Vickers wonders aloud who the hottest chick in the room is, and they agree on a willowy blonde looking bored on the dance floor with a banker type.
“I’m going to go give her a ride,” Vickers says. “Hell, what do I have to lose?”
At the time of the Maxim piece, Vickers was single and he stated the story was a stitch-up. It’s not damning because he was basically a young athlete who liked the company of dogs and women.
He married Sarah Kensington (as she was known) in 2013 in Wyoming. He has had investments in property in New York and a company which makes breast implants (see below).
He says on his website that they both support the innocence project charity because they’d both been accused of things they didn’t do, which I think is a peek into his soul.
