Jeffrey Epstein’s girlfriend was found guilty on five out of six federal charges on Wednesday inside a Manhattan court room. Ghislaine Maxwell; 60, wore a dark suit, accepting her fate nonchalantly; while her siblings look on during the trial. Maxwell assisted the deceased sex ring leader by transporting teenaged girls; some as young as 13; in the midst of a sex trafficking ring.

According to four women’s testimonies, the British woman worked alongside Epstein for 10-years; [1994-2004] as his girlfriend and loathsome business partner. The victims accused Maxwell of luring them to have sex with both her and Epstein.

For the past fifteen years, these women have been tossed aside for the protection and political connection to Jeffrey Epstein and his girlfriend. On top of that, being deemed as nothing less than prostitutes, while being lied to prosecutors and attacked by defense lawyers sent the women into deep depression and obvious hopelessness.

The young women shared with various news outlet how exonerated and justified they felt now that the public believes them.

Jury Finally Convicts Ghislaine Maxwell

During deliberations, protesters gathered outside of the federal courthouse awaiting the decision, which doesn’t have a sentencing date.

Finally, a jury concluded that Maxwell was guilty of sex trafficking of a minor; transporting a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity; and three related counts of conspiracy; which carries a possible prison sentence of up to 40 years.

“The road to justice has been far too long. But, today, justice has been done,” US Attorney Damian Williams said in a statement. He continued, “I want to commend the bravery of the girls; now grown women — who stepped out of the shadows and into the courtroom. Their courage and willingness to face their abuser made this case; and today’s result, possible.”
