Ghislaine Maxwell, the longtime trusted friend of Jeffrey Epstein, was arrested Thursday morning as part of the continuing U.S. federal inquiry into the scandal of human and child sex trafficking operation, according to expert sources.
Arrested in New Hampshire, the socialite Ghislaine Maxwell is expected to make her first court appearance later this afternoon.
A federal grand jury in New York indicted Maxwell on a conspiracy charge that accuses her of “helping Jeffrey Epstein to recruit, groom, and ultimately abuse victims” between 1994 and 1997. Both allegedly knew the victims were minors, under age 18 and as young as 14.
Allegedly, Maxwell and Epstein enticed and lured the victims to Epstein’s homes in several states, “which Maxwell knew and intended would result in their grooming for and subjection to sexual abuse,” the indictment charged.
While awaiting trial on the trafficking charges and before authorities can question him, Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide in a federal detention center in New York.
Federal authorities vowed to continue the investigation, including involving of high profile elites and to obtain the cooperation of Britain’s Prince Andrew, a friend of Epstein.
