Here in New York, Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite who is accused of luring girls to be sexually abused by convicted predator and sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, has pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking charges and will remain behind bars until her trial in July 2021. A judge denied Maxwell bail on Tuesday after two of Epstein’s accusers pleaded for her to remain behind bars and federal prosecutors argued she was an “extreme” flight risk. Maxwell is being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, where her attorneys say she’s at risk of contracting the coronavirus. She was arrested July 2 and faces up to 35 years in prison if convicted.
