Federal authorities are offering scarce details when it comes to Jeffrey Epstein madam Ghislaine Maxwell following her New Hampshire arrest last week on charges related to Epstein’s extensive sex trafficking scheme.
Maxwell, 58, was indicted by a grand jury last week on charges of conspiring to entice minors to engage in illegal sex acts, conspiracy to transport minors for illegal sex acts, transportation of a minor to engage in illegal sex acts, and perjury, 24 years after allegations had been made of similar crimes.
On Monday, Maxwell was transferred to a federal facility in Brooklyn to be tried in the Southern District of New York exactly a year after Epstein was arrested on charges of operating a comprehensive sex trafficking operation that included underage girls. Government officials at the FBI and New York City Police Department (NYPD) however were reportedly told of Maxwell and Epstein’s alleged crimes by accuser Maria Farmer in 1996 according to an interview with the New York Times. The Times wrote that the FBI had not acknowledged the contact while the NYPD refused the Daily Caller’s repeated requests for comment.
While Epstein apparently killed himself in a Manhattan prison, federal officials are offering no details on what safey precautions are being implemented to keep Maxwell from succumbing to the same fate.
The FBI has denied the Daily Caller’s repeated requests for details and has not immediately responded to Federalist inquiries either. The Federal Bureau of Prisons confirmed to The Federalist that Maxwell is being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn but declined to further comment. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York also declined the Daily Caller’s request for comment and did not provide an immediate response to The Federalist.
