Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell has been convicted of sex trafficking after a New York jury deliberated for more than five days.

Maxwell was accused of recruiting and grooming four teenagers for Epstein between 1994 and 2004. Epstein committed suicide in a Manhattan jail cell as he awaited trial on sex abuse charges of his own.

Maxwell was found guilty by a 12-person jury of five of the six counts she was facing.

A unanimous jury has found Ghislaine Maxwell guilty of one of the worst crimes imaginable — facilitating and participating in the sexual abuse of children,” U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said in a statement following the verdict. “I want to commend the bravery of the girls — now grown women — who stepped out of the shadows and into the courtroom. Their courage and willingness to face their abuser made this case, and today’s result, possible.”

 

She could potentially spend the rest of her life behind bars.
