Ghislaine Maxwell stands accused of procuring young girls for the sexual gratification of Jeffrey Epstein and his ‘friends’.
Court documents say that she ‘facilitated Prince Andrew’s acts of sexual abuse by acting as a madam for Epstein’.
She was described in the court papers as a ‘primary co-conspirator in Epstein’s sexual abuse and sex trafficking scheme’.

The documents said: ‘Maxwell persuaded Jane Doe #3 to come to Epstein’s mansion. Epstein then became enamoured with Jane Doe #3 and with the assistance of Maxwell converted her into what is commonly referred to as a sex slave.’
Miss Maxwell, the cherished daughter of crooked tycoon Robert Maxwell, is no stranger to scandal. Her world came crashing down in 1991 when her father plunged to his death from the deck of his £15million yacht, named Lady Ghislaine in her honour.
Shortly afterwards it was revealed that the notorious newspaper tycoon had stolen £440million from the Mirror Group’s pension fund.
