Ghislaine Maxwell sex abuse trial begins in New York

Opening statements are set for Monday in the trial of Ghislaine Maxwell, the former associate of Jeffrey Epstein charged with recruiting and grooming girls for his alleged sex trafficking ring. CBS News legal contributor Jessica Levinson spoke with CBSN’s Anne-Marie Green and Vladimir Duthiers about what the prosecution has to prove to make its case and whether taking the stand would benefit Maxwell.

    Don't kid yourselves Maxwell was a pawn of Epstein, also making her a victim .
    Everyone once a scape -goat ,so burn the witch get your much needed pound of flesh.
    But I would rather the truth come out and have Maxwell testifying against the friends of Epstein .not buried in prison hushed. Epstein was the mastermind of this the devil you say

  • Ray Bod

    Seems like prosecutors are not making a deal with Maxwell to protect all the wealthy and powerful clients. Maxwell could testify about all the clients, but won’t without a deal. She’ll be convicted, jailed and soon die in jail along with all her secrets.

    Jessica states… in a REALLY OLD CASE maybe I’m really old but much younger it seems than Jessica because 2004 does not seem like that is a REALLY long time ago her stating … memories fade & change… HMM… I am not a person who loves dishonesty & disingenuous people so maybe that’s in part why I take issue with her statements as if what happened was no big deal? It seems Old Jessica there may be lucky enough to not have endured trauma, especially sexual abuse trauma, & even more so when you’re still technically a child, in my experience those traumas do not fade & they’re your right hand passenger always there to haunt you with never ending PTSD, SO yeah… it doesn’t just fade away & change like a water color painting that was left in the rain, that’s why it’s so incredibly difficult to attempt to heal & speak out let alone try to find value & self worth by working on how to put those traumas in a place that doesn’t present in all other areas in the victims life. Believe me it’s like an over stuffed suit case & one day you’re at work doing your normal day & all the sudden you can’t breathe, you’re crying, shaking & SO embarrassed because your social mask won’t adhere anymore to your own psyche. There’s really no help & it feels like people are still asking well what did the victim do to deserve it? Looking to Maxwell for help & being so betrayed I know had to of been more shocking. Out of the frying pan & into the fire.
    And of course Ghislaine Maxwell‘s siblings say they don’t know the criminal that these victims are painting as their sister …of course they don’t know her as that… I don’t think anyone really knows anyone to the full extent. But do you think BTK’S family & wife knew what he was doing do you think Dahmer‘s father understood his son was eating people after he raped and murdered his victims? NO..
    humans can be many different people.
    In 🇺🇸 money & power comes before anything…including’’justice’’ since this is tied to such powerful politicians all over the globe & all sorts of rich influential ppl, she’ll get off scot free or she’ll have a no questions asked magical yet impossible disappearance or death, just like… her twisted lover! There’s been hundreds of these types & it’s always swept under the rug, there’s been SO many I’m sure since the C.I.A. is known for their wet works & illegally spying on Americans, this will utterly shock a lot of ppl – if this actually goes forward, if she doesn’t magically disappear & IF she is found guilty or actually serves prison time, these people never have to pay for their crimes.

    What a flipping joke.They failed to even include the major victims.The lawyers are already paid.And you so called reporter’s treat this like it’s just another sex crime when it’s so much deeper than most will ever know.

  • Mercy

    Those who are looking for the despicable crimes against the defenseless, against children (and those who are too young to understand what is going on until it's too late) you need look no further than the pictures of Jeffrey and his cronies for actual suspects. No need to believe in the rumors passed around by mysterious persona circulating the web — Mr. Anonymous!
    For those who are struggling with coming forward to give their testimony, may you get the help and support you need to speak your truths and may you recover from these events.

  • Edward Schieler

    I can't believe that these victims were so gullible and couldn't see the signs " masseuse " . All they were after obviously was the money 💰. Why didn't they just say no ? But they all went willingly and now feel guilty 😕. It's crazy 🤪

  • Denise Booker

    How that bumb was able to commit suicide is a huge question mark he had already tried once before did he pay the guards or is he on a island drinking and having fun

  • Timelessmusic Familymusic

    When I see Epstein hugging Maxwell, it's not that he really likes her, it's more of thanking her for bringing these young girls into his life for his wicked deeds.

    Jesus Christ saves from sin.
    Romans 3: 23
    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    Hebrews 9: 27
    And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
    Isaiah 64: 6
    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
    Revelation 21: 8
    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
    Romans 5: 8
    But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
    John 3: 16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    John 14: 6
    Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
    Romans 10: 9-10.
    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    Jesus said John 5: 24
    Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
    1John 5: 10-13
    He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
    And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
    He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
    These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
    Ephesians 2: 8-9
    For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
    Not of works, lest any man should boast.
    Romans 8: 1
    There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
    1 Corinthians 15: 3-4
    For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
    2 Corinthians 5: 21
    For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

    12:16 Why was race interjected in the discussion? We're not living in Jim Crow era. Completely tone deaf. Human trafficking is a multi-billion dollar industry and this reporter managed to diminish the issue by talking about race. Just stupid. CBS, you don't have to prove how "woke" you are by talking about race every second on the air. Children are literally being sexually abused as we speak, but you all wanted to talk about race? Glad your ratings are plummeting.
