Victim’s lawyer Lisa Bloom says that Ghislaine Maxwell is unlikely to “sing like a canary” by naming other powerful members of Jeffrey Epstein’s pedophile ring and is more likely to try to have the whole case dismissed.
Despite lawyers arguing she was a coronavirus risk, Maxwell was denied bail yesterday and now faces a July 2021 trial on four counts of sex trafficking and two counts of perjury.
According to victim’s attorney Lisa Bloom, any plea deal Maxwell is able to obtain will almost certainly carry serious prison time anyway, meaning she will probably try instead to have the whole case dismissed.
“Ninety-five percent of cases end in plea bargains, so that would not surprise me, but I don’t think at this stage, prosecutors would give her a deal if it did not include very serious prison time, and I don’t think she would accept that at this point,” said Bloom.
This means there is no real incentive for Maxwell to expose other elite co-conspirators involved in Epstein’s sex trafficking network.
