The developments in the Ghislaine Maxwell case are never-ending. The trial hasn’t even started, and yet the evidence against her continues to mount.
During her first hearing on Tuesday, July 14th, Ghislaine was denied the $5 million bail her defense team proposed to the court. 6 co-signers agreed to pay the bond, would it have been accepted. None of the co-signers have yet been identified. Monday’s trial also revealed that Maxwell is married, although the name of her spouse has not been released by the defendant.
The real estate agent who sold Maxwell the sprawling 156-acre ranch in New Hampshire, where she was eventually captured, told an FBI agent that Ghislaine, along with her mysterious husband, introduced themselves as Scott and Janet Marshall. “Scott”, went on to tell the real estate agent that he had recently retired from the British military and was writing a book.
During an interview with Gayle King on CBS This Morning, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, a victim of the Epstein sex ring, referred to her as “evil” the “mastermind” behind the alleged pedophile ring who was “worse” than Epstein when it came to the systematic sexual abuse of dozens of young teenage girls.
Despite all the evidence that has come out against her in the last few weeks, Maxwell appears to have garnered some supporters. During an appearance on Fox News this past week, Geraldo Rivera seemingly supported Maxwell by calling the charges against her “wobbly,” and the judge is copping out to “the mob”, referring to those who wish to see Maxwell behind bars.
Now the biggest issue that remains is keeping Ghislaine Maxwell alive until she stands trial, will is scheduled to start in July 2021. She faces up to 35 years in federal prison if found guilty on all 6 counts.
