The socialite accused of helping to recruit women and girls into Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking ring has been transferred to a federal detention center in Brooklyn, New York.
Ghislaine Maxwell, 58, was arrested on Thursday at a luxury hideaway in New Hampshire, and is facing six counts in connection to the alleged sex trafficking. Bureau of Prisons spokesman Justin Long told CNN on Monday that Maxwell had been transferred to Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center. The spokesperson declined to provide further information.
According to the report, Maxwell is expected to appear for an arraignment and bail hearing on Friday, July 10.
Epstein died of an apparent suicide in August 2019 while he was in a New York City jail awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges.
