Disgraced socialite Ghislaine Maxwell sentenced to 20 years in prison

Disgraced socialite Ghislaine Maxwell has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for helping Jefferey Epstein abuse young girls

The 60-year-old was convicted back in December for her part in both recruiting and trafficking four girls, who were then abused by Epstein.

Epstein killed himself in his Manhattan jail cell back in 20-19 while awaiting his own sex trafficking trial.

One of Maxwell’s accusers spoke outside the New York court, saying Maxwell should should die in prison.

When handing down Maxwell’s sentence, the judge said the former socialite’s actions were both heinous and predatory.

She says Maxwell worked with Epstein to select young victims who were vulnerable, playing a pivotal role in facilitating sexual abuse.

#MeToo trial

It was one of the highest-profile cases in the wake of the #MeToo movement, which encouraged women to speak out about sexual abuse, often at the hands of wealthy and powerful people.

In often emotional and explicit testimony during the trial, four women testified that Maxwell was a central figure in their abuse by Epstein.

Fury after two men were filmed surfing through the Grand Canal in Venice

Just when you thought you had seen it all, two people have decided to go surfing through the famed Grand Canal in Venice.

The tourists were filmed riding the waves on Wednesday morning, seen dodging water taxis and zipping under the Rialto Bridge.

It’s believed the perpetrators were ridding eFoils, or electric surfboards that are raised slightly out of the water.

The move has angered locals, with the city’s mayor calling them “two overbearing idiots making a mockery of the city.”

He offered a free dinner to anyone who has information to help find the pair, and they were later identified.

The two surfboards, worth about 25,000 Euros each, have been confiscated.

Each surfer has also been fined for endangering the navigation of the canal, and were expelled from the city immediately.
