This morning (Thursday), Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s former girlfriend was arrested.
Officials confirmed that she was taken into custody in Bradford, New Hampshire, and face several charges relating to the accused child-predator. Maxwell has been keeping low-key for about a year, when Epstein was himself arrested on sex-trafficking charges. He was accused of abusing many girls between 2002 and 2005.
Epstein pleaded not guilty, but was found dead on August 10, last year whilst awaiting trial, which only sparked more suspicions and theories.
Maxwell is thought to have recruited and groomed young girls for Epstein. A number of women have accused her of recruiting them to give Epstein massages, sometimes nude or partially nude. Authorities said the massages would often end with Epstein sexually abusing the victims.
She has also been accused of offering incentives like paying for their travel or education, in order to make the victims feel indebted to them. According to court records, prosecutors said girls were sexually abused at Epstein’s New York mansion, his home in Palm Beach, his ranch in Santa Fe, and even her own home in London.
Maxwell is due to appear in court, and more information is expected to be unveiled.
