Ghislaine Maxwell’s conviction for sex trafficking upheld

Jeffrey Epstein’s long time girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell has had her sex trafficking conviction upheld.

Judge Alison Nathan of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit upheld Maxwell’s conviction for transporting a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity and sex trafficking of minors.

However, Judge Nathan ruled that the three conspiracy counts Maxwell was convicted of were “multiplicitous,” and sentencing the convicted sex trafficker on all of them would violate the Fifth Amendment’s Double Jeopardy Clause.

Maxwell was found guilty in December by a 12-person New York jury of five of the six counts she was facing, including sex trafficking.

Maxwell is due to be sentenced in June.
