A U.S. appeals court on Monday dealt Ghislaine Maxwell a blow by refusing to block the release of a deposition she gave concerning her relationship with the late financier and registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. Gloria Tso reports.
(CNN) A federal judge has denied Ghislaine Maxwell's request to be moved to the general prison population, saying changes to her confinement are unnecessary at this time. Lawyers for Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein's former girlfriend, who faces charges of recruiting, grooming and abusing minor girls as young as 14-years-old, asked the judge to transfer her out of a high-security cell in the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York, to allow her to better prepare for her defense.
The Duke of York’s accuser has claimed Andrew played a guessing game about herage when they first met and compared her to his daughters. Virginia Giuffre,in a new documentary series called Surviving Jeffrey Epstein, says she was 17when she was introduced to the Queen’s second son in London, and described himas an “abuser” and “not the prince from the fairy tale stories you read”.Andrew has categorically denied he has had any form of sexual contact orrelationship with Ms Giuffre.
