For many victims of the Epstein-Maxwell sex-trafficking scandal, today stands as a joyous and exhilarating moment where they get the justice and closure they deserve. Ghislaine Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison for sex trafficking and 3 counts of conspiracy after legal battles which date back to 2015.
The first case of sex trafficking allegation made against Maxwell and Epstein was in 2015 when a “Jane Doe 3” accused the two of recruiting her while underage to provide sexual services to Epstein and other prominent men. According to the victim, she was sexually abused occasionally by Maxwell and Epstein.
The publicity of this case started a “Me too” reaction as many victims stepped forward to accuse the two of similar or more grievous crimes.
Epstein and Maxwell’s sex trafficking schemes supposedly span decades, beginning as early as the 1990s by recruiting and training minors to provide sexual services to some so-called prominent stakeholders in our societies. Some of the prominent names mentioned as beneficiaries of their sex trafficking schemes include; Prince Andrew and Ghislaine herself.
It is alleged the pair sexually trafficked hundreds of young girls over a 2 decade period.
Jeffery Epstein, unfortunately, died while being apprehended in the Metropolitan Correctional Centre in New York following his charges in 2019. His death was ruled a suicide by hanging but some believe his death could have been carried out by his allies to cover their tracks. Ghislaine on the other hand was sentenced to 20 years in prison on the 28th of June 2022.
