Media heiress Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested this week, and faces multiple felony charges connected to Jeffrey Epstein and sex trafficking girls. However, Newser reports she has at least one high-profile ally: Celebrity attorney Alan Dershowitz. Dershowitz wrote in The Spectator that he and his friends never saw Maxwell behave inappropriately. Maxwell and Dershowitz have something in common. Both are accused of sexual misconduct by Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre.
Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage is facing a horrific accusation. And it's not from a groupie or ex-girlfriend, either. It's from his sister. Newser reports Miranda Pacchiana filed a lawsuit Tuesday in New York state accusing her brother of 'repeatedly' sexually abusing her as a child. Savage was 9 to 12 years old at the time of the alleged assaults, and Pacchiana was 7 to 10. Now 52, Savage denies everything. While I hope that my sister gets the help she needs to find peace, this needs to end.
Newser reports that nine women who accused the Weinstein Company of a hostile work environment have reached a settlement of $18.8 million. In their suit the women claim they were forced to facilitate Harvey Weinstein's sexual conquests. A victims' compensation fund is to be distributed among the women. Attorney General Letitia James said the settlement was "a win." But that's not how some of Weinstein's alleged victims see it.
Former police officer Joseph James DeAngelo Jr. intends to plead guilty to going on a rampage of rapes and murders across two decades. According to Newser, the Golden State Killer will enter his plea Monday, plea forty years after terrorizing California suburbs across six counties. The 74-year-old is expected to plead guilty Monday to being the elusive Golden State Killer. The deal will spare DeAngelo Jr. any chance of the death penalty for 13 murders and 13 kidnapping-related charges.

German prosecutors believe Madeleine McCann is dead and are investigating a child sex predator on suspicion of her murder. The suspect – a 43-year-old German national partially identified as Christian B by local media – is reportedly serving a seven-year prison sentence for the rape of a 72-year-old American woman in Portugal in 2005. He is known to have lived on the Algarve coast between 1995 and 2007 and his Portuguese mobile phone received a half-hour phone call in Praia da Luz around an hour before Madeleine, three, went missing.
