Ghislaine Maxwell was a “dangerous” and “sophisticated predator” who recruited vulnerable girls to be sexually abused by late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, a Manhattan prosecutor told jurors Monday during closing arguments.
“Ghislaine Maxwell was dangerous,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Alison Moe told the panel. “She manipulated her victims and groomed them. She caused deep and lasting harm to young girls. It’s time to hold her accountable.”
During the three-week trial, prosecutors argued that Maxwell, 59, participated in and enabled Epstein’s sex crimes — allegedly luring and training the perfect victims for her one-time paramour.
Moe called her a “sophisticated predator who knew exactly what she was doing” when she allegedly groomed young girls to be sexually exploited by the globetrotting millionaire.
