Things could be about to explode in the Ghislaine Maxwell sentencing as she’s given up the fight to keep the names of eight ‘John Does’ secret.
The 60-year-old will name eight men linked with Epstein’s abuse of minor girls between 1994 and 2004.
Maxwell attorney Laura Menninger wrote.
“After careful review of the detailed objections submitted by Non-Party Does 17, 53, 54, 55, 73, 93 and 151, counsel for Ghislaine Maxwell writes to inform the Court that she does not wish to further address those objections.
Each of the listed Does has counsel who have ably asserted their own respective privacy rights. Ms. Maxwell therefore leaves it to this Court to conduct the appropriate review.”
“Now that Maxwell’s criminal trial has come and gone, there is little reason to retain protection over the vast swaths of information about Epstein and Maxwell’s sex-trafficking operation that were originally filed under seal in this case.”
The court will decide whether the names should be unsealed.
Maxwell, 60, faces up to 65 years in prison after she was found guilty last month in a New York federal court on five federal charges.
