Ghislaine Maxwell is facing what would amount to a life sentence if convicted of child sex trafficking. Epstein’s Ponzi scheme partner Steven Hoffenberg says that if they keep Maxwell min prison, she will crack in two seconds and spill her guts out to the prosecutors. If she has enough big names she can implicate she could even get herself kept in a safe house outside of prison to keep her safe before the trials.
Maxwell was recently arrested on charges of conspiracy to entice minors to engage in illegal sex acts, conspiracy to transport minors for illegal sex acts, transportation of a minor to engage in illegal sex acts, and perjury. Speculation is that two of the big names she could implicate are Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew of Great Britain. But that could very well just be the tip of the iceberg.
“They knew where she was all the time [in New Hampshire]. It was a question if America was going to take the case or not, now America has made up its mind to take the case.”
“If they keep her in prison, she’ll crack in two seconds. She’s not able to take that sort of cruel punishment, prison is too tough and hard, she’ll have to be in solitary confinement, and she’ll snap.”
“She’s going to cooperate and be very important. Andrew may be very concerned, and there’s a lot of people very worried, a lot of powerful people been named [in the scandal], and she knows everything.”
Prince Andrew has strongly denied any allegations of inappropriate conduct related to Epstein, saying last year that “any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue,” the Sun reported.
“This is a difficult time for everyone involved and I am at a loss to be able to understand or explain Mr. Epstein’s lifestyle,” he said in August, according to The Guardian. “I deplore the exploitation of any human being and would not condone, participate in, or encourage any such behaviour.”
Epstein accuser Virginia Guiffre claimed in a 2014 court filing that the prince molested her at Maxwell’s direction. The Guardian reported in 2019 that a court deemed this allegation “immaterial and impertinent” and ordered it struck out of a defamation claim against Maxwell.
