Lawyers on Ghislaine Maxwell’s defense team quietly tried to hide the truth from the public on Monday. They wanted to broker a deal to keep “her accusers from publicly posting evidence from her criminal trial to help boost their civil suits against her.” It didn’t work.
No compromise deal for Ghislaine
Fox news is reporting that “attorneys for Maxwell sought to come to an agreement with prosecutors on secrecy rules.” It’s normal, especially in child molestation cases, for both sides to agree on keeping “the evidence confidential before the trial.” Ghislaine told her lawyers to take it a step further. “the lawyers could not compromise on whether to extend the rules to the state’s witnesses.”
“Attorneys for the British socialite, who faces six counts of sex trafficking involving minors, wrote a letter to the court Monday urging the judge to stop the victims or their attorneys from releasing any information to the internet or elsewhere, including ‘nude, partially nude, or otherwise sexualized images, videos, or other depictions of individuals.'” It turns out that Ghislaine had a hobby.
The underage adolescents that Ghislaine brought home to “massage” her blackmail partner Jeffrey Epstein occasionally ended up as playmates later in Maxwell’s room. “court documents revealed Maxwell allegedly photographed topless young girls as a ‘hobby.'” Her lawyers argue they’re concerned that “these individuals will seek to use discovery materials to support their civil cases and future public statements.” They’re a lot more concerned now because they didn’t ink a deal.
Lawyers in panic mode
The evidence which the lawyers for Ghislaine Maxwell don’t want made public was unsealed pending appeal, and they did file an appeal. It went down in flames sending the high priced lawyers into panic mode. As of late Thursday, July 30, “District Judge Loretta Preska, who oversees the civil case, ordered the separate release of dozens of other documents that the British socialite had wanted sealed, rejecting her lawyers’ bid for an emergency phone conference,” US News writes.
The unsealed civil lawsuit documents from 2015 have lawyers nervous they’ll “inappropriately influence potential witnesses or alleged victims.” Along with that setback, comes news of another document release which defense attorneys are scrambling to seal. Ghislaine really wants that one covered up. It’s “a deposition about her sex life.” The “2016 deposition is scheduled for release on Aug. 3, unless the appeals court orders a delay or further arguments.”
The New York post has learned that Ghislaine liked taking pictures of topless little girls, as a “hobby.” The 2016 deposition of Epstein’s Butler, Juan Alessi, is about to hit the streets. He passed out the allowance money to “probably over 100″ girls to massage the two.” Not just Epstein, “the two.” He remembers she had “like a hobby. It was some girls were topless, taking the sun.” He also testified under oath about his other daily duties. “Alessi, now 70, also said in the deposition that he would find sex toys in the room where the massages took place, which he had to wash.” Maxwell preferred “a double.” After finding her toys, Alessi “put my gloves on, took it out and rinse it, and put it in Ms. Maxwell’s closet.” He also relates finding a “shiny black costume” in a closet he believed belonged to Maxwell.
