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.

The 42-year-old mogul tweeted:

“I have been quiet for the past few days, not because I haven’t been disgusted and outraged by the recent Balenciaga campaigns, but because I wanted an opportunity to speak to their team to understand for myself how this could have happened.”
