  • Jeffrey Epstein told Ghislaine Maxwell in 2015 she'd done

A NY judge has unsealed 2,000 documents from a 2015 civil lawsuit filed against Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite who is accused of luring girls to be sexually abused by convicted predator and sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.

When making her 2016 deposition in support of the lawsuit, Ms Giuffre was asked about men Maxwell was alleged to have told her to have sex with and, naming individuals, said "another prince that I don't know his name".

Epstein victims are fearful that sex tapes and photographs featuring them being abused could be described as part of the unsealed evidence and eventually shown in court during Maxwell's criminal trial, can disclose.

Over the years Ms Giuffre has told her story to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but no charges were brought based on her allegations and she is not one of the three alleged victims in the current criminal case against Maxwell.

The woman told a USA district court in NY that Epstein and Maxwell had instructed her "to go to.another prince that I don't know his name". Maxwell was decribed as having "continuous sex" with underage girls all over the Epstein's private Carribean island - by the pool, on the beach, and in the small huts of the cabana. Giuffre claimed Jeffrey Epstein has three twelve-year-old girls brought to him from France - a "birthday present" from Jean-Luc Brunel. According to Giuffre, Epstein spoke of the favor in a joking manner in response to her question why Clinton was on Epstein's island.

She was also charged with two counts of perjury, according to the indictment by the acting USA attorney for the Southern District of New York, Audrey Strauss.

Maxwell's trial is scheduled for next July. Giuffre said the former president stayed in one of the villas on the island at the time that she and two girls from NY were also on the Island.

Prosecutor Declines to Charge Ferguson Police Officer Who Killed Michael Brown
Bell's announcement angered some of Ferguson's longtime activists, who criticized him for not going further than McCulloch. Wilson resigned days after McCulloch's November 24, 2014, announcement that the grand jury would not indict the officer.

Maxwell denied these accusations in a 2016 deposition, calling Giuffre an "absolute liar".

In a court filing on Friday, Giuffre's lawyers called Maxwell's appeal "frivolous, and a transparent attempt to further delay the release of documents to which the public has a clear and unequivocal right to access".

"You have done nothing wrong and I would urge you to start acting like it", Epstein wrote in January 2015, as more allegations of sexual abuse against him surfaced.

Maxwell is also accused of sometimes participating in the abuse. Victims say they were farmed out to some of Epstein's wealthy associates. If convicted, she could face up to 35 years in prison.

US District Judge Loretta Preska had ordered the documents' release by Thursday, saying the public's right to see them outweighed Maxwell's interests in keeping them under seal.

In a July 10 bail request, the lawyers said the media had shifted their focus to Maxwell following Epstein's death, "wrongly trying to substitute her for Epstein-even though she'd had no contact with Epstein for more than a decade", had never been charged with a crime or been found liable in civil litigation, and had always denied allegations of misconduct.

"I have been the target of outright lies, innuendo, slander, defamation and salacious gossip and harassment", it says.
