She is said to have recruited young girls for Jeffrey Epstein. Ghislaine Maxwell has now been reportedly arrested in the United States.
Ghislaine Maxwell, former confidante of the sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, has been arrested, media reports. Maxwell was caught by the FBI federal police in the US East Coast state of New Hampshire and should be brought before a judge on Thursday, several US channels reported.
The daughter of the late British media mogul Robert Maxwell is said to have recruited young girls to satisfy Epstein’s sexual desire. The investigation continues even after Epstein’s death. It is about possible accomplices of the sex offender.
Epstein is said to have sexually abused underage girls and young women for years and instigated prostitution. The investment banker had already been sentenced to 13 months in prison for the sexual abuse of minors in 2008 and has been a sex criminal ever since.
He was arrested again a year ago and later found dead in his Manhattan prison cell. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, he committed suicide. If convicted, the multimillionaire, who had good contacts with numerous politicians and celebrities, could face up to 45 years in prison.
