New York prosecutors claimed Tuesday that accused Jeffrey Epstein sex-trafficking accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell is married and refuses to reveal her spouse’s identity.
According to the New York Post, Assistant U.S. Attorney Alison Moe alleged during Maxwell’s bail hearing that Maxwell is intentionally hiding how much money she has by not explaining why she hasn’t listed any possible bond co-signers. Moe then claimed that Maxwell, 58, won’t identify her spouse to Pretrial Services, or divulge her spouse’s financial situation or assets.
The prosecutor didn’t say who she believed the jailed British socialite was married to, or how long they’ve been married. The report did not indicate precisely when or how authorities learned Maxwell was married.
Maxwell remains jailed without bail following her July 2 arrest in Bradford, New Hampshire. She is accused of grooming at least three underage girls, as young as 14, for Jeffrey Epstein to sexually abuse between 1994 and 1997.
A six-count grand jury indictment charged Maxwell with multiple crimes, including transporting a minor for the purposes of criminal sexual activity and conspiring to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts.
Epstein, 66, was jailed without bond in July 2019 following allegations that he sex-trafficked dozens of underage girls from 2002 to 2005. The billionaire financier was found hanged in his cell in a reported suicide at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan on August 10.
