The trial of Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite and former partner of Jeffrey Epstein, is set to resume today.

Ms Maxwell, 59, is accused of grooming teenage girls para Abuso by the late convicted sex-offender and financier. She has pleaded not guilty to all charges against her.

The trial at a federal district court in Manhattan is expected to last six weeks. It was adjourned for the weekend in New York City on Friday.

Semana Anterior, prosecutors brought a green massage table in front of the jurors and one survivor claimed in her testimony that Epstein routinely used massages as a pretext for sex abuse.

One of the sexual abuse survivors, Sarah Ransome — who says she was repeatedly raped by Epstein over a nine-month period — described Ms Maxwell as a “very sick woman” who took pleasure in “humiliating” her victims.

Ms Ransome said: “Ghislaine enjoyed humiliating us. You could see the enjoyment in her face.”

Enquanto isso, defence attorney Bobbi Sternheim said on the first day of the trial last week: “The charges against Ghislaine Maxwell are for things that Jeffrey Epstein did, but she is not Jeffrey Epstein.”

If Ms Maxwell is found guilty, she could face up to 35 anos de prisão.

Expert says defence to keep the spotlight on Epstein

Deborah Tuerkheimer, a professor of law at Northwestern University says that in an effort to make Ghislaine Maxwell ‘Eve’ to Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘Adam,’ — “we can expect the defence to do whatever it can to keep the spotlight on his manipulative, grooming behaviour.”

During the opening statements, Ms Maxwell’s lawyer — Bobbi Sternheim — had said: “Ever since Eve was tempting Adam with the apple, women have been blamed for the bad behaviour of men.” She added: “She is not Jeffrey Epstein, she is not like Jeffrey Epstein.”

Ms Tuerkheimer was quoted by NBC as saying that the “defence has signalled its intention to make Epstein central to this trial. By portraying him as charismatic, well-connected, almost larger than life, her team may well be hoping to make Maxwell disappear into the background. Epstein’s star-studded life of fame and riches can grab the jury’s attention and focus, increasing the odds that Maxwell appears as a merely peripheral figure in the story.”

ICYMI: Prosecutors say Maxwell created a ‘culture of silence’

Prosecutors at the Ghislaine Maxwell trial accused the former partner of now-dead sex offender Jeffrey Epstein of fostering a “culture of silence” to hide his crimes.

Prosecutors said that Epstein ordered the construction of a detached staff quarter, surrounded by a tall wall, so as to hide the view of the main mansion from them.

Juan Alessi, the former housekeeper of Epstein’s mansion in Palm Beach, Florida also testified that it was “a kind of warning that I was supposed to be blind, deaf and dumb, to say nothing of their lives.”

The trial of Ghislaine Maxwell who faces six charges — one each of enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, transportation of a minor with intent to engage in illegal sex acts, sex trafficking of a minor, and three counts of conspiracy related to the other counts — resumes today.
